Obama in India


Yeah, I know, you are probably aware that Obama is here in india. Infact everyone knows that and he is here for what ??  May be – To visit the place where the 26/11 incident took place, or To sign a 6$ billion deal so that he could go back with 50,000 odd jobs , or To get the tension Off  between india and pakistan, or To Visit Taj Mahal. It Could be anything, i mean the reason which is not important to us, all that is important eventually is that he is here.

Well, I dont mind the unnecessary attention that is given to him , he is the president of United States so let him get the special attention. He gets to set out his food on a specially made Red carpet from his plan. He gets to occupy one whole floor in TAJ HOTEL . He gets whatever a King would get . But this is something i found totally unjustifiable  –

Coconuts removed in India ahead of Obama visit

In their effort to provide maximum security in the run-up to his visit on Friday, they have removed coconuts which may fall on his head from trees.

All coconuts around the city’s Gandhi museum have now been cut down, an official told the BBC.

And yeah, I forgot to mention that  as funny too 😉 .  I don’t have anything  else to say. You have any comments ??

WHEN TERROR STRUCK MUMBAI !!!!


TAJ UNDER ATTACK

60 hours of terror that shook not just mumbai but also the whole nation ,not to forget the other countries ,is finally over . Mumbai is free . Its not that terror is new to our country but the scale of this one in particular has left us appalled and speechless . When was the last time we were glued to our TV sets day and night changing one news channel to other . When was the last time mumbai came to a complete halt for 2 days .

The more i think about it , the more I feelsick. I mean , anyone can come to our country and kill a couple of hundred people . As a citizen of a country there’s nothing more disturbing that this . Is there any place that is secure . Anyone could would walk in to the station and go on a rampage . Five star hotels are under seige so  no point  thinking about the security of normal hotels. A complete lapse of security . Cctv footage shows two terrorist carrying guns and entering the railway station . A railway station as busy as that one has no one guarding it.What a shame!!

IT has been complete failure of intelligence  . ITs not the first time . There have been many terror attacks in the last couple of years . There’s no excuse for this .What’s the use of having such a team when they are not able to avert these kinds of attacks .

I really dont know what these terrorists are trying to achieve by killing innocent people . These inhumane bastards are out of their mind . ITs really shocking to know that the terrorist who has been caught alive says that he has no regrets in killing people . What a coward!! These guys shoot kill people without any guilt and when they are given death sentence ,human right activist come and fight for them . This is  so silly .

Pakistan taking a U-turn and refusing to send ISI cheif is not at all surprising .Infact i would have been surprised if he had come . India-Pak relations are  only going to get worse . Pakistan government always says that they will co-operate with india in removing terror but why dont they do something about the militants in the pakistan occupied kashmir (pok) .IT has indeed been proved that these terrorist were trained in that region .

Another issue i would like to mention is the sms  thats doing rounds relating raj thackeray and his MNS activists .

1.Don’t know where he is when you need him. We want him to go and save amchi Mumbai. Army, NSG commandos are not marathi manoos….why should they fight and lay down their life for Mumbaikars.

2.Where is Raj Thackeray and his “brave Sena”? Tell him that 200 NSG commandoes from Delhi (no marathi manoos, all south and north indians) have been sent to Mumbai to fight the terrorists so that he can sleep peacefully tonight in Shivaji Park. Please forward this so it finally reaches the coward bully.

I personally dint receive any message like this . Some people are infact taking the sms too personally  and feel that it has been intended towards maharashtra or mumbaikars. I ,however second their thought. I dont’ think that the message has anything any communal meaning. It is a message directed at raj thakeray and his supporters . The message is just a sarcastic way of mocking at raj thackeray and the politics he plays .Although i don’t support these type of messages , i cant accept when people say these messages show hatred for maharashtra .

Well, Only solace during these three days was to see the NSG commandos ,Marine commandos and other security personal keeping their lives on line to save others . Not to forget the fire department guys who too were present all the while .Special mention to the hotel employees who have been spoke off so greatly. Some of these people probably lost their lives trying to save the guests and hostages .

News channels did a fantastic job in bringing the live coverage of the developments going on there. I certainly do not agree when people say it was just to increase the TRP rating .. I want to ask -what do you want from them ?? They were putting themselves in danger for us ,for keeping up us updated about the issue . IF someone feels that they show the same thing again and again .They should  just change the channel rather than cribbing about it .Although now i realize that the media could have been a little responsible . (Line updated)

My heart really cries out for those who have lost their loved ones ,for those innocent people who did nothing wrong except for being in that place at a wrong time .May the people who have lost their lives, REST IN PEACE .

If terrorists think that they are weakening the country’s integrerity and unity by doing such acts then they are wrong .We as a country are only getting stronger.
