True heroism - salutations to the bravehearts who did what mattered!

Hmmm... I guess most of the populace around the world has heard about the terror attacks that happened in Mumbai. Staying in the same country, I can't help but feel a little startled. And it's amazing how a band of terrorists could just waltz like that into the city on fishing boats and hold the whole city gripping in shock and terror as they went about killing random people so whimsically!

And at the same time, I want to really thank the brave hearts from NSG for all the help they've done in exterminating this threat! And I feel a little sad when I think of all the lives that were lost in this ordeal... May those souls all rest in peace.

And for once, the focus was on the army! It's sad how they're thought of only when they're needed and the government can be so mean when it comes to giving back to the armed forces! I'm talking of the people who risk their lives to make sure you and I live on to see tomorrow safely! These are the people who don't cringe at the thought of spending winter in Siachen or the summer in the scorching deserts of Thar. They are our real heroes and for once, I was so glad the politicians were not involved....which reminds me... where were they?

I hope the government has some really convincing reason why such a terrible breach of security happened in the first place (and blaming pakistan's all fine and dandy but if we weren't so stupidly negligent about border securityalong the waters bordering our nation, the blames come a little too late and a little too blunt!).

And just so the world knows, we (Indians) aren't intimidated by this incident and for all those tourists and travellers who're thinking if India's safe enough, Please do come again! Fear's their best weapon and let's not give them the satisfaction of getting to use it!
