26 - the unlucky date

Another dark day in Mumbai's Book... Some how the date 26th has not worked out well for India. Be it earthquakes, floods or terrorist activities... It scares my heart to imagine that I've been to most of these places in the past 1 year -

Orchid Hotel
CST Station
Taj
Vile-parle
Metro Cinema area
J W Marriot
Nariman Point
Leopold cafe...

As I write this post I see news of firings in JJ School and Cama hospital. Sitting in the TV room, these are some of the comments I get to hear...

"Koi AK-47 leke kaise ghoom sakta hai !"

"Is level ki planning karne waale smart log aise kaam kyun kar rahe hai"

"Isse to accha subah jaake vidhaan sabha mein aisa kucch kar dete"

Don't have anything new to write, just sitting still with hopes that no-one i know has been unfortunate enough to get affected. To my fellow Mumbaikars who have been unfortunate, I pray you find some peace and courage.

Mumbai is getting too big for the government to manage. Tears my heart to say this but I believe it's time the island city gets its own governance, security and entry barriers. The people of Mumbai have run the Indian economy for decades now, it's time they get their due diligence...What a big mockery it is that 26th Nov - Law Day in India was chosen to break the law and order in such mammothly disturbing ways !
