Remembering... the dark hours of Mumbai....

Alright ppl all over the world... the gal is back.... 
Ok, I just wanted to give the article a very VVIP start.... Anyways, the thing that I want to talk about in this post is, about the 60 hours of sheer madness and terror in Mumbai. It was something that is going haunt me, at least all my life. no, not because I was stuck there or was even remotely near that area. But, seeing the heritage of the 'city that never sleeps' being ruined at the hands of a bunch of young guys, just because they have been misguided by assoles was scary and numbing. (Ofcourse, this whole fiasco was threatening to kill my mumbai trip... that too was scaring me...)
After the action, its the reaction time. With everybody blaming everybody. But in that all, we forgot a very important lesson. 
India is a huge country with so many religions and states and what not. What binds the country together is the fact that we are proud of having such distinct cultures in one. And, even in one family no two people are the same and therefore there are arguments and fights there too, but we dont stop loving the other person nor do we stand disunited in front of the others. When an outsider attacks the family, bad relations or not, you stand up for em.

Similarly, in the wars of our states wherein people like Raj Thackery and his goondaraj makes international headlines and show to the world that India is even incapable of handling her own people. 
History tells the story of how the divided kingdoms of India attracted the Brits to slave us for 200 years. And today, because of the vested interest of the politicians a divided India is getting enslaved to terrorism. 

The most who are to blame is us, because we don't put our foot down. We do not use our right to vote judicially at times not use it at all. 
Let us try and get this message across to people, that getting into riots for all the wrong reasons with our own fellow country men is not going to help us, its just gonna make things worse for us. India is a peace loving country, where  people are proud of the beautiful past that we have had.
Keeping this in mind, I'll pray that, we apply this lesson to ourselves also. Fighting amongst the family should strengthen the bonds not losen it, so that we dont invite an outsider to completely destroy us.

Amen.

Ya u r rite..The Mumbai attacks have suddenly spurted our old rusted machinery into action & I guess this time something will be done as the UPA govt doesnt have any choice.The general elections are approaching & one more terror attack will be catastrophic for them & will mitigate their chances of coming to power again.So for at least politics sake ,if nt for the greater good of the people,they will certainly leave no stone unturned to avoid any sort of carnage
& Regarding Raj Thackeray .I hate that person more than Osama Bin Laden..At least Osama has a very composed ,innocent look!

Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
