Only this time, they also decided to gun down people and take hostages. Because the bomb blasts apparently weren’t getting the job done?
What is wrong with these people? Terrorists world over — how in fucks name are they fighting for a cause by killing innocents? It is nothing but madness. Individuals who are brain-washed to think that their way is the right way and nothing else matters — in fact, no one else matters. They believe they are being martyrs and fighting for a righteous cause. And that’s what makes the entire thing scarier — that they believe they are doing no wrong.
It’s been quite scary to see the pictures of the places bombed — my sister goes to uni out there. Takes a train to and from VT station every day. Hangs out with her friends at Nariman point and Leopold’s. Sort of similar to stuff I did — and back in 2003 when there were bombs set off in places I frequented, it hit me about how we could never prepare for things like this.
It is scary, living with that fear that anything could happen. A terrorist could strike any time.
To all the readers from Bombay or anyone with family there — I hope everyone is well.
And yet, the people of Bombay have always seemed to bounce back and get on with their lives.
