The Mumbai Carnage is really disturbing.
Some time ago I saw a tribute to the Taj with a voice over by Roshan Seth( ?) and more recently the inside story of the Taj and how it faces up to the daily challenges on Discovery Travel and Living. Certainly this challenge was not one of them.
My friends in college and I used to visit the Taj loo, Cheemos in Oberoi, Leopold's ( preferred Cafe Mondegar though). It was synonymous with fun times. There must have been others like us seated there.
Since last night, I feel the hyper active coverage by the media makes it easy for the terrorists to gather the police's/ security's strategy.
What must have gone on in the minds of the policemen who entered first not knowing where or what to look for?
How easy would it be for a terrorist to escape by mingling with the hostages?
What would have gone on in the last few minutes in the minds of those who are no more
And what about those who will live on post this nightmare?
And those who thought they would die and did something that embarrasses them now, since they are going to live on?
How insignificant everything is before Death. Yet live we must - and make each of those "insignificant" moments count.
And so life goes on. . .
