    Time to show your resilience and spirit again, Mumbai

    After the blasts on 11 July 2006 in Mumbai, I wrote

    Mumbai, please stop getting on with life. Cry! Become angry! Riot! Do something to let those in power know that they can't go off to sleep and let another terrorist attack happen, knowing well that the Mumbaikar's resilience and spirit will ensure that they don't get blamed in the end.
    It isn't fair. The terrorists are cheats. It's only been 4 weeks since the last attack, not the 6 weeks that normally transpires. How can they attack again so soon?

    How will the government react? This is how their cabinet meeting this morning will go.
    • Two minutes silence for the dead
    • Shivraj, please answer the following questions
    • Any ministers injured or dead? No
    • Any MPs injured or dead? No
    • Any state CMs or ministers injured or dead? No
    • Any MLAs injured or dead? No
    • Any former PMs or CMs injured or dead? No
    • Any 'important' politicians not belonging to the above list injured or dead? No
    • Any film stars or cricketers injured or dead? No
    • Any other important media, cultural or sports personalities injured or dead? No
    • Right, we move on to the next item on the agenda.
    I'd expect no better from the government, since like I mentioned after the attacks in New Delhi on 13 Sep:
    In my opinion, the terrorists will keep getting away with these attacks as long as they target civilians. The moment a politician is affected, that's when the representatives will wake up and take action. We saw that with the Khalistan movement, especially after Indira Gandhi was assassinated. We also saw the stance taken by various parties against the LTTE after it assassinated Rajiv Gandhi.
