Its been around 16 days (more than 2 weeks) since the terror attack on Mumbai..It was ugly, bloody and to be honest totally unacceptable..The Common man was suffering with no reason and we couldn't do anything but see that remorseless and brutal killing of people..The darkness was spreading everywhere..
The attacks had claimed our heroes who sacrificed their lives just to protect us...And it seemed like that terrorism had won the battle even though all the 10 terrorists were killed (1 was captured though)..but the aftermath was different than what we all had expected...We saw a new India..UNITED India!!!
Yeah!..India is waking up from its slumber...Candle light marches (Some say its wasting wax but its not..do we have any other way to send our message and pay tributes??..We can't go the "RDB" way or the "wednesday" way..can we?), protests forcing the government to take some action and attacks on the politicians (with words and phrases), new communities being formed, actors refusing to celebrate festivities and even promote their films (SRK isn't thats what I know)..and is all this doing any good?..To some extent..Ya!..Take an example of today in the parliament meeting, all the parties have decided to stand united against the enemies (The terrorists)..But as the saying goes.."Actions speak louder than words"..So whatever the parties have said..we'll have to wait to see if this statement is put into effect..
Now it seems like india wants to take these terrorists down and attack them this time with no investigations, no cases and needs cooperation from her neighbours..So is pakistan helping??..Well Rice did clear some things up and pakistan is now on a roll..arresting terror suspects, doing house arrests, seizing bank accounts..but is it being done just as a formality or its time terrorism surrenders to the power of nations..??..Few questions still remain unanswered..
But apart from all this as far as the news go..something is going on and actions are being taken..its time for India to earn its respect and dignity back..its time to leave those petty issues behind and fight the big problem..the problem of terrorism..So that we can all roam around freely and not worry about being shot!!..Its time to take this problem head on...No turning back now..The "wind of Change" is already blowing..lets be a part of it..For the United India..And not let this attack on the nation get buried the way others were and actions are taken not investigations..
