Posts Tagged ‘Mumbai’

Right by now you all know how that I had gone to India, I needed this trip for my own sanity or insanity, last year had given me a lot of sleepless , restless nights , when everything seems to be going perfect Life makes a U-turn. I know everyone says we have our up’s and downs but I have realised in my case it is more like ABOUT TURN or North – SOUTH , completely opposite. So when I finally finalised the trip got my holidays and tickets sorted, I told my friends, as usual it was the expected reaction I got which made the decision to go home even more sweeter.

My flight was from UK-Dubai-Mumbai as the plan was to stay a couple of days in mumbai and then leave for chandigarh, but due to the wedding arrangements I had to change that at the last moment, There is no domestic flight from Mumbai to Chandigarh late in the evening for some reason, So I had to still stay one night in Mumbai.

R’s mom offered me to come over to her home,which was so lovely of her, so Thank you so much R’s mom, I am sorry I could not make time to come and at least meet the little one and Family, but Next time Promise to meet. I really really appreciate this and believe me I wont forget ..

We had planned to meet up in mumbai, drive to pune , where I was to also get in touch with Rahul, and he was such a gentleman he too offered and invited me to his home, but due to the last-minute changes nothing materialised, Rahul to you also I am very sorry , but next time my friend for sure.

Rajesh whom we call GUPTAAAAAAAA JIIIIIIIIII was so angry at the change of plans , but it could not be helped, So the journey started , the party began from Home as two of my friends offered to drop me at the airport, which was an excuse to start the party, I usually dont carry that much luggage so I got my stuff checked in and straight for the bar. I needed the drinks as had a long journey ahead. Finally the flight took off and I landed at Mumbai.

I will mention here that I did not like the fact that Dubai airport no longer has free Wi-fi. I had some hard time passing the time there is only so much time you can spend in the duty free, Also I was not much impressed with the duty free, Thankfully the call came to board the Mumbai flight, Which turned out to be an experience in its own, As when the call came to board the plane, everyone moved towards the boarding gate , expecting to board the plane but instead there was BUS standing , Usually you would think the plane is probably parked on the tarmac 2-3 minutes ride away.

But hold your breadth we went on that bus for more than 25 minutes , that’s how big the Dubai airport is , God knows where the plane was parked for all we could see was tarmac, or the main road on the side running parallel which had lot of traffic, far in the horizon it was getting darker and darker as if its gonna rain Elephants and camels rather than cats and dogs .. Finally managed to reach the plane, Landed in Mumbai. The first instance was to get the phone on as Mumbai had Free Wi-Fi and thanks to all these Apps that we get on phone it has become so easier to be in touch.

Now in the normal world usually when you talk to someone they ask how are you, how was flight etc etc but here The moment I switched on , got a call From Rajesh saying “PAHUNCH GAYA” (You Reached).. and then the next question was “Kehdi Peeni hai” .. What you going to drink 🙂 , so we decided to buy Two bottles from the duty free.
Duty free is another place where rules are broken I guess depending on the face of the passenger , I had already bought my Quota of Alcohol from Dubai but that was for the wedding, so I just went to Duty free in Mumbai and picked up Two more bottles , I did tell the guy at checkout that I already got my Quota , and he just asked am I paying cash or card.. He even asked Do I need more .. 🙂

For some reason my luggage took ages to come out, it seemed everyone had left I was still standing there, finally the suitcase arrived. Another thing I found different at airport was that they scanned your luggage once again , just before you went out of airport, I never had that before.. so that worried me as I had over the top quota of alcohol , But no one seemed to bother.

I was supposed to be picked up by a hotel person, to take me to a hotel which Rajesh had booked for me for the night, Here let me tell you one thing that I was meeting him after a long long time the last I had met him was in first year of college , as Rajesh went to the engineering college after that, I did meet him once on his wedding day. But after that we had never met Or been in contact with each other .. so its was going to be A MOMENT.. meeting up for sure.

Reached the hotel Orchid checked in , meanwhile continuously in touch with him as he was driving from pune , He finally reached I can’t tell you guys what a feeling it was to meet someone after so many years, to meet someone with whom you have shared life’s best years, those who know all your secrets, those who stood with you right or wrong.. those who helped you every time when they could ..

We had so much to talk about , SO MUCH but before that the Bottle had to be opened, Cheers Time it was, I mean time was Flying just the two of us , When I was on flight I was wondering what are we going to talk about, its been so many years , I am sure both of us would have forgotten things as time gone by, BUT as we started it was like a dam had broken, Time was flying and suddenly it was suddenly 10pm , we had planned to have a few drinks and then go for a drive, have dinner outside somewhere..

Apparently Salman Khan usually came out to a place , we were to go and meet him 🙂 but the clock had its own mind, it was running on its own sweet speed, Time was flying past yet our talks did not finish .. After a couple of drinks we started calling other friends trying to tease them that we are having fun while they were probably in bed trying to go to sleep.. Called up almost everyone in the phone list, They were cursing us for that ..

Our Talks were like those of little kids .. YAAD HAI this.. YAAD HAI that.. DO you remember we went to see that movie , DO you remember the college canteen, DO you remember THIS . do you remember THAT.. it went on and on and Onnnnnnnnnnn , its funny how one thing leads to another, so many little stories that I had forgotten came to mind, as if we had just done them. College time was like NOW, How Mr Gauba the Chemistry teacher was disturbed , How the Samose-Channa-Bhatura in canteen were so OILY, I probably would not eat them now, at that time they were so tasty.

I use to have a Bicycle then, as parents would not buy me a Bike or Scooter.. We had a OLD LUNA (does any one remember those good old days of Luna) and then had a french moped called Sportif.. (Now that is really a BLAST from the PAST).

I would sometimes get that to ride, Gupta use to stay in University as his Dad use to work for the Punjab University, I would pick up the Luna in evening and go to meet him in evenings and we would go around the campus , walking around the Girls hostel, One of our friends Sister use to stay in Girls hostel , We were so concerned about her that WE HAD TO go meet her to see if she was ok 🙂 Via her we met other girls and soon the well being of her had taken a back seat .. we were more concerned about the new friends we had made ..

Both of us had changed so much Gupta paaji had become a bit heavier. 🙂 and had gone fatter than what he use to be a Skinny guy, and I was no more the sardar he had seen , I had -had my hair chopped , shaved , But what I felt was all that was just yesterday, It was just yesterday in first year for the finals Physics exam, we had somehow got the question paper leaked (or so we thought) , who did I take it, to get it solved , it was Gupta –Mr. Studious managed to solve it.

soon it was Selfie times toooooo ..

UPDATE:-
07th may 2014 :- I have now received the Cheque for the amount, I had paid . Wish I had blogged and written on Twitter 2 months ago , I could have saved myself the pain. Why could the people at the hotel not do it at the First time , is still a mystery. Thank you all for the concern..

I have till now been to a lot of countries and different cities in india, even here in UK I have visited a lot of places , checked into hotels to stay for the night or more, In all my life I have never had any problem at any of the places I have stayed.

This year when I was planning to come to india , I had a plan to stay in Mumbai for a couple of days so as i could meet my friends. Someone suggested me the name of The resort hotel (@theresortmumbai). So i went ahead and booked, I called them before hand and they were very polite , so I went online booked the room and paid in full. Their website takes you to a third-party portal for payment.

So a couple of days later I rang the people to confirm , thankfully the room was booked all confirmed.. I did not bother about the email.

As it happened the plans got changed and I no longer needed the place to stay as my friend from pune planned something else , and here is where the NIGHTMARE started.

15th February :- I wrote an email asking the hotel to cancel the room, No reply came.

16th February :- I called the office , I think it was just about 5pm in evening india time The lady on the phone asked me to call “TOMMORROW” , as the accounts department had closed.

17th February:- I called again to be told the guy has not come and I should call tomorrow again, I then emailed them.

18th february:- received the following email as a reply..

“Dear Mr Bikram
Sorry for the trouble you have faced. Sir you need to cancel the booking through the hotel website only. We cannot cancel the booking verbally.
Thanks and regards
Ajeet nayak”

But to my utter dismay the cancel button doesn’t exist on the site. you can book AND PAY on their official website but can’t cancel, After trying my own clicking every button on the site I managed to find the cancel button , but this took a lot of my time and at least 10 to 15 phone calls , I was passed from one person to another , so much so that a guy actually said to me that If I am having so much problem I should call the PA to the general manager. He gave me her number , So I call this lady who at first tried to pass me on to someone else, but then when I told her the whole story, she apologised and said If I could call her in half hour as she was driving.

NOW, usually people who are in the wrong call you back , but hey that does not work , I told the lady I will call her in ONE HOUR, giving her plenty of time to sort out things. So after an hour I called again and GUESS WHAT SHE DID.. in all her intelligence passed the phone to a guy , who I think was playing cricket because I could hear a lot of shouting and Out , OUT etc etc and other cricketing words.. Now this gentleman again tells me the same thing “if I have done a booking online , I got to cancel it also online.. ” or call a Mr. Sagar who deals with the ONLINE side of the hotel.

This Mr. Sagar is a person who is very hard to contact, I called and left at least 2 or 3 messages on his voice mail saying I am having problems, I had no response.. finally late at night I found how to get to this dubious cancel button . You go to their MAIN OFFICIAL Website , then at the bottom we see the Follow us icons for facebook, twitter etc etc in the end is a Blogspot.. You click that ..

Capture1

Go to a another link .. and do you think you can see the Cancel button .. You must be joking .. Not that easy , You click the Online booking icon at the bottom of the screen

Capture2

and then you see a cancel\modify button ..
Capture3

Click that button you go to another web page 🙂

Capture4

So I went there entered my booking id, pressed the Cancel button 🙂 NOTHING happens, I tried a few times when all that did not work , I wrote another email AFTER calling the hotel and talking to the lovely lady. Also an Email to this elusive Mr. Sagar. this is still the 18th of February. I was very very polite so far requesting every time..

20th February :- Another Email to Mr. sagar , along with a couple of voicemail on his phone at different times.

22nd February :- I finally get a reply from Mr. Sagar which says the Following

“Dear Bikramjit, Sorry for late reply as due to tech issue I didn’t received your mails in my inbox. As per your request we will cancel your booking and will process full refund for the same.
Due to URL issues webpage is not supporting online cancelation TAB.
Best Regards

Finally I found out, how great the communication is between the Online Team and the team that is running the Hotel , because none of the people that I had talked to on phone had any idea , that the online cancellation was not working. I must add here that by now the lady at the reception started to recognise my voice , the moment I said Hello, She would say Hello Mr. Mann, Hasn’t Mr. Sagar got back to you . 🙂 .. so to that lady.. THANK YOU , for always being so polite

2nd March :- 10 days go by no refund , Another Email to Mr. Sagar, along with the usual voice mails.

5th March :- I was mad by then and fuming so I wrote an email to Everyone.. “rev.mgr” , Lobby Manager , Reservation , Front Office Manager . The email was Not Polite. It was in Bold, Capital letter throughout and highlighted RED..

DO you think anyone from this hotel lot would have any decency to reply to that , OH NO.. it did not work.

12th March:- I email again , Requesting the people to at least give me a contact with whom I can talk and get this sorted — NO RESPONSE

31st MArch :- By now I had been to india and Back.. still no sign or reply from anyone , Not a single person from the any of the departments who were CC’ed in the emails responded. I emailed again. This Time again the email was in capitals, Bold and highlighted in RED.

LOTTERY time it was .. I got a reply the very next day .. So the people only work when shouted at 🙂

1st April :- I get another reply from Mr. Sagar
Dear Bikram,
We are truly apologies for inconvenience which you have faced while coordinating for your booking refund.
I have given approval for your booking refund it will reflect in your account in 07 to 10 working days.
For fast process if possible please provide us your bank account details so we can deposit cheque .
Best Regards
Sagar Chandane

Now this Approval as far as I remember had been given before my trip to india, as I can clearly remember the lady on phone telling me that , she has had a word with Mr. Sagar and he has approved it.. BUT let us give them the benefit of doubt and agree that Mr. sagar gave the nod on 1st april 🙂

I thought I was in Luck finally they will do something , So I replied on 2nd april Telling them they can Refund the money to the credit card used , Or they send a A/C payee cheque to the address and I will ask someone to deposit in my indian bank, I in my STUPIDITY also thanked Mr. Sagar for a Quick Reply.. OH WHAT A SHAME..

A MONTH PASSED ..

1st MAY 2014 :- I had to write back to Mr. Sagar , reminding him .

2nd MAY 2014 :- I sent a Tweet to them .. @theresortmumbai Can you REFUND my money please .. I have been requesting since 16th February

3rd MAY 2014 :- They Replied – Hi the payment is under process, kindly furnish us with your postal address so that we can courier the cheque by next week., so another 7 days to go ..

I have replied to them “@theresortmumbai The details are with EACH email address , Reservations, front office, Lobby manager , Mr. sagar .. Sent on 1st April

I am still waiting for that refund.. now people tell me What else can I do. I have thought that maybe Each one of you who are in India can Make ONE phone call everyday to these people asking them have they refunded the money I have about half a dozen phone numbers of people whom I have been asked to Talk to and NONE of these “MORONS” have any idea how to refund or what can be done .. It seems this Hotel had a refund request for the first time in their History. Or can tweet them on their twitter handle @theresortmumbai..

I would love to write all the names that I have been talking to but I shall refrain as some of them might be decent human beings but JUST can’t be bothered to do their work, or do what they are being paid for and understand How they are harassing me … I had first thought of publishing all the emails that I had sent but I thought otherwise , this should be enough of a wake up call for them .. BUT THEN DO YOU THINK THEY ARE INTERESTED .. NA

Any help will be greatly appreciated, If anyone of you can go and pick the cheque it would be great, I would prefer giving the cheque to some charity or just throw it in the bin , rather than have these bunch of CROOKS keep it .. A Week more and it will be 3 MONTHS of harassment caused by the so called Prestigious hotel. They are worst then the politicians even they have some shame .

BlogJunta - An ode to the Blogosphere

Dhoni’s men could have adandoned the England Tour

UPDATE – AFTERTHOUGHT :- This post is not on cricket, or on the point that should india have stayed in UK or abandones the tour,  I am talking of the point where this person is Puting two incidents at equal PAR.. If we think that english would then that makes us ONE step better then them that we stayed and played circket for which we are paid. But saying the Mumbai attacks equivalent to the Looting by Teenage/young people .. without GUNS Heavy Equipment, Without Shooting people on the STreet, Without careful planning .. Thats the point I am trying ot make .. How can the Same two incidents be same … In one people Innocent people were Killed , they lost their life to careful Planning .. In the second it was nothing but LOOTING.

I was reading the above article on the online version of this Supposedly best Indian news papers .. It made me really mad , On the thought of such People who are supposedly better writers .. And have written so many articles. How can they write such silly stuff, The gist of the article was that the indian team could/should have abondoned the entire England tour at the sign of Riots and taken the easy way out to save themselves the humility of being beaten fair and square by a better team.

This writers tries to  put the two episodes that of  26th November 2008 Mumbai attacks  and of August 2011 UK Riots as same, I mean IS HE THAT ______.. he is supposed to be a journalist and times of India is again supposedly a good newspaper , why it allows such article to be published I can’t put my mind to it. The Rationale to compare the two episodes is ridiculous.

Well let me take the opportunity here to Tell this person Mr. Saibal Bose the two incidents that happened were not same .. People died in the Mumbai attacks , it was an attack on the nation by some people, It was a fully planned and well organised Attack. What happened in UK was some youth getting together and going on a Looting spree, YES that’s what it was LOOTING.. not even rioting which the media in India  created such a big issue of. The terrorists were looking to kill as many possible, put fear in the people,  The looters so-called rioters had no such intention Unless they found DHONI or TEAM walking on streets with Plasma Tele’s .

What happened in Mumbai was one of the worst terrorist attacks on our nation and the Security for the English team which was touring India in those days had a perfect good reason to think of the safety of its men, as they could have easily been targeted , which sadly we all saw .. when the Sri Lankan team came under attack  in Pakistan the following year.

The Looting that happened here in UK, was not targeted at people, It was some groups in need of the latest Armani suits, Or Iphones or Televisions that too FREE.. That is all it was about, No one was carrying heavy weaponry , targeting People killing .. Why would the indian team feel scared of this .. I don’t know.

Is the intelligence so ridiculous, are the security personnel that follow the indian team, or advice them on security so silly they literally thought that Indian team was being targeted by teenage groups of people running with free goodies off an electrical shops..

I found it really hilarious that this person is suggesting that the indian team should have abandoned , what came MORE of a surprise was the long list of comments people saying yes it would have been good..

I enjoyed reading the article where the Writer is thinking of what will happen if indian team had come back, the english press would have called them Chicken.. I mean how can someone think of what has not happened.

This is what made me laugh out loud , This is what the writer writes “If the Football association can call off a friendly involving the English team, there surely was a case for the Indians to seriously contemplate returning home. Particularly with the team not doing too well. It recalls, the English team wasn’t doing too well either when they returned home in 2008. Going by India’s batting on the first day of the Edgbaston Test, perhaps India would have done well to come back. They had a good enough excuse to return, regroup and go back at a later date, better prepared.”

For those who are Reading Let me make it very clear the FOOTBALL match was cancelled because of the large number of police officers needed to police the event, not because the players were thought to be at risk, The police had to control the Looting .. use officers in that ..

Can you believe it , A writer writing this in a major paper..

Really I would like all of you to go and read this article, and why Times of india found this nonsense even worthy, Comparing the two incidents, I wish he had done some research on this , To me its a disgrace of how small the thinking is , even to compare.

What risk is a youth stealing some Nike shoes to a Team of players who have security around them.. The english team came back to India once all was settled and security was good, I hope people don’t forget that , It is also a fact that BCCI wanted the matches to take place because of the money that they would have lost.

I really would like people to know what they are saying and stop writing such silly notes just to gain some publicity

Some of the comments I will just copy paste ..

1. Suresh says:

We do not care what English people think about us or win their hearts. We, Indians, play fairly and win the game against England.You are right on the money. We, Indian people, needed to stand up for our team rather than just criticizing our team and applaud White men. we should be wise to leave the tour in the middle when the opportunity happened as England team did to us. When we have courage to stand up to white man? We have more than 1 Billion people. Why we accept white man for everything and critize our team? We still world champs. One more fact:England invented the game of cricket but they never won one day world championship. We won twice. So Indian team is better and we are proud of you.

 2. j venkatesh says:

I think we are yet to come out of the colonial mentality and that is why we are subdued in all aspects. We are brave only when we fight among ourselves. The writer is perfect in his view that we should have come back citing the arson and looting that was taking place in front of their hotel and therefore we could have avoided the disaster at Birmingham. Regarding sporting spirit, it applies to us only. If the same thing happens to our players English/Australians/Proteas would not have relented and would justify the dismissal only as per the cricket rules. Unlike English coach and captain, our coach and skipper would not have gone to the opponents dressing and beg to reconsider the appeal. But ECB and other white nations forget their coffers are being filled up only because of BCCI.

This is a Repost of a article written last year for a competition here , I did not have anything more to write on the politics in india so am Reposting it here Again 🙂 A lot has been written already on the politics-independance day and all in blogosphere 🙂  As such nothing much has changed from last year to today .. same thoughts still exist

Phatte: So, the monsoons are finally here huh? Don’t you just love the feel of the rains? The beautiful breeze that flows and how everything is green in Mumbai?

Vijay: You mean of what little green is left in the city? I’m not really enjoying the rains. My house is getting more unstable day by day. Imagine what a day of continuous rain will do to it.

Phatte: But didn’t your MLA start off some initiative to rebuild houses in the chawl? I noticed the posters plastered all over the place.

Vijay: Yes he did. Just like he promised electricity, subsidized food tickets for the needy and a school exclusively for the chawl kids. Somehow those “schemes” are yet to be started and it’s been couple of years already since the last elections.

Phatte: Well, I think you should talk to your MLA about this.

Vijay: That will take at least a few years. What to do about my house till then?

Phatte: Why a few years?

Vijay: Well, the MLA comes only a month before the elections and then leaves a month after. And even during the rallies and pre-election chaos, he only visits some chawls, picks up the weakest looking kids and talks to the women. We just wave at him from a distance.
Phatte: I know. That is the story everywhere. I don’t even remember the name of the MLA of my area. Why don’t you shift bases then? Go to Andheri or some other place?

Vijay: And wade through the floods? Are you nuts? We lost my sister-in-law in last year’s flashfloods. My wife would rather leave me than going to that part of Mumbai.

Phatte: I read in the paper that the Municipal Corporation is going to take appropriate steps to lessen the effect of floods in Mumbai this year.

Vijay: Why would they? Bollywood even made a movie on it and raked in good money. From what I hear, the people at the Municipal Corporation were thrilled that the floods were portrayed so beautifully in that movie.

Phatte: I remember that movie. I had gone to watch it, but unfortunately couldn’t reach the hall on time.

Vijay: Too much rush, eh?

Phatte: Oh no, apparently some minister sahib decided to take a ride around the city that particular day. The Police had blocked all the major roads for his cavalcade of vehicles to pass. And off course, once the roads were opened you know the maniacal traffic in Mumbai; where cows have the right of way.

Vijay: You are right off course. Hey what happened about your son’s admission to ITI?

Phatte: I’m glad you asked! I have good news on that front. My son got through.

Vijay: Congratulations! You were having a harrowing time about it.

Phatte: I know. I had been hopping from office to office trying to sort out our caste certificate. When I went to the ITI admission office, they just looked at me once and said there was no job there for me! Can you believe it? I explained to him, I wasn’t there for a job but to get my son into the institute. So he just asked me which OBC I belong to. I tell you Vijay, if there’s one good thing these politicians have done, it’s this reservation system. My son can attend college now.

Vijay: Brilliant! What was his rank by the way?

Phatte: Oh, he was ranked 1,75,000. What about your son? He has grown up to be a fine young man. What plans do you have for him?

Vijay: He is going to stay with my brother Raj. Raj is the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and he thinks my son has just the right attitude to be a part of MNS. Besides you don’t really need any educational qualifications to join Politics in India.

Phatte: MNS? Isn’t that the party routing for Marathi Manoos?

Vijay: Yes.

Phatte: Gandhiji must have turned in his grave the day MNS came into existence. I mean, he tried to spread the message of brotherhood, tolerance and secularism all his life. Now, some politicians are trying to break our unity on the terms of who is Marathi and who’s not. It is so sad.

Vijay: But I completely agree with their propaganda. Initially our politicians told us to be a secular nation and welcome outsiders to be a part of our society. I mean what a truck load of nonsense is that? This is our city. Why should we let others come here? I like that guy leading MNS.

Phatte: But doesn’t he have a few criminal cases against him for inciting riots in the city?

Vijay: Stop being a hypocrite Phatte. These days every other politician has a criminal record in his name. Does that stop people from contesting elections? Off course not! How does it matter if they have a criminal record, if now they are stepping into the most noble of all services: helping the common man?

Phatte: You seriously think politicians are doing things to help us? Have you seen the bungalow of that MLA from Juhu? It’s right next to Amitabh Bachchan’s house. If he thought of spending even 1% of what went into making that house, I think our whole slum can be rebuilt.

Vijay: Well all the corruption and black money has to be converted to white money in some way right? What better than to make a palatial house in the richest suburb of Mumbai. I bet they have some hi-fi cars too.

Phatte: Yes, bullet proof cars for the politicians, whereas people bleed on the streets everytime there is a terror attack.

Vijay: Seriously what is the world coming to Phatte? I feel disappointed living in this nation which is ruled by such characters.

Phatte: Well, maybe we should elect the other party in the next elections.

A sudden commotion erupts. A lot of people start running hither thither.

Vijay: What is happening? What the hell is going on? Why so much of rush?

Iqbal: (shouting from the crowd): Don’t you know? Vinod Kambli has decided to join politics. He has come to the slums to meet us. I am so excited! A cricketer in our area!

Phatte: This is great! After movie stars now cricketers are also getting into politics. Isn’t there any eligibility criterion for politicians?

Vijay: His earnings from ads and reality shows must have dried up Phatte. And isn’t entering into politics a sure shot ticket to lottery?

Phatte: Come Vijay, lets see how well this politician lies and what unique promises he makes to us.

PS:- Image courtsey a Lovely friend Manna.

PSS:- Where are all you lovely people from the Blue Ink society.. Been ages since we have talked to each other ..

PS:- Please also visit  an Interview by Elegant Chic.  I got interviewed and its been my honour once again for the same.

I have been bad not visited many blogs that I visit regularly , sorry about that will come soon to all the lovely people to have a read .. 🙂 take care all and keep smiling

Hello there Humans well I am supposing you are humans as in belonging to the same set of Being on this earth .. don’t worry this is nothing to tell you off or anything about what you are doing, I have a few requests that i want to make and ask  first is kindly do let me know why are you people hell-bent on killing innocent humans, people whom you don’t know, people who you have never seen in your life , what in the world have they done to be treated by you like that, that you don’t give two hoots about them ..

I am sure you have your own reasons or whatever Evil thrill you guys get in killing an innocent human..  I can give you a list of hundred nay thousands of indian people who are worst of a kind, who you can target and believe me it will be a bigger impact than killing innocent civilians who are going about their day to-day work. How about planting those bombs aimed at our national leaders .. That will get you media attention if any one of them is killed in a blast..

It will definitely help your cause , though in my little mind I can’t understand what CAUSE  it is?  that says to attain it you have to kill innocent people …

Look if you can leave the countrymen the innocent civilians and go for the Idiot corrupt – useless leaders that my country has it will work in both our favour you will get your evil pleasure in blowing up some human , or maybe you have this fetish for blasts and enjoy the sound of loud bangs…  secondly  we will be happy to get rid of these corrupt leaders.

If you guys are after money then again these leaders have enough money hidden in their vaults that  you guys can live a lavish life .. More over God might just smile if you kill the bad people , as such since negative negative makes a positive I am guessing bad VS bad might just become good .. who knows ..

This is a humble request to you all planning designing the atrocities on fellow human beings please go for the big fish.  I am sure some of the innocent civilians may actually support you in this act of yours, the media has been going on and on about how we need to move on and how normalcy is returning back to Mumbai , how the people are so resilient .. Well I am 100% sure that the same civilians will Move on much quicker knowing that a Kalmadi or a Raja or some other corrupt has been blown to bits…

PS:-  I was informed me asking the terrorist to kill leaders rather then innocent people maybe taken in wrong way , so to clarify ..  thats exactly what i want .. As our leaders are not innocent and deserve to be Shot and killed ..  It is a genuine request to the Killers if they have to kill then kill the politicians rather then innocent people .. Maybe then our leaders will do something about this and safeguard the citizens who deserve better security then the leaders. The Deaths of innocent people has not shocked any of our leaders all those promised made last time when our country was attacked, Nothing has been done , maybe on paper but not in the Real sense, If one big leader is killed then things will move.. maybe then instead of a Z security for the politcians or any officer there will be MAYBE a “A” security for a the whole  COUNTRY.. I dare not say for a common man..

I have read a lot of posts on the mumbai blasts, a lot of people like me have a lot to say and lot of blame game going on , But What makes me angry is why are we blaming others , It is US the indian people , who are to be blamed , we have brought all this upon ourself.  We are the ones who chose the leaders to lead us , We see them every 5 years or sometimes less, we moan about how they are corrupt and bad leaders , Yet come the election day we go and VOTE for them .. its none of their fault …

If I am a leader and I am getting a chance to rob anyone without being questioned , sorry to say I will probably do what they are doing, anyone and everyone will do the same … This is not a SATYUG or the era of HarishChander.. it is a time where everyone is for its own self.. I have seen people who vouch for how good they are , seen them say a lot about corrupt people but once they get the same seat they are doing the same … I am sure all of us will do .. Look at the latest political Dramas being played by a few all in the name of doing good for the country… How millions went ga ga over leaders who did good one day .. the very next day they were doing the same what they stood up against…

It is sad what happened Very sad , But what have we as individuals done about it , not many have done anything, it has become norm.. Things will only change once WE STAND UP, clean the dirt in our own house, then our street , then the road , Mohalla , city , State and so on Then we MAY see some change..

We are doing great , we are evolving , We have gone leaps ahead in this or that .. YES we have but all this has it in any way changed the ways of life for a common man, I doubt it .. And common man is the one who if changed will change the ways of a country , the rich getting richer , the corrupt getting corrupter  is not going to change anything …

I hope our leaders don’t put another of those committee’s to look into the security , to find reasons , to find the culprits .. That does not work. It’s just a farce what has any of these committee’s ever done for the nation.. other than use up the TAX money and waste them too. Time for action What action is taken depends upon how the people of our country feel ..

My heart-felt condolences to the people who were affected by this , and also I would like to say SORRY TO ALL THAT WERE AFFECTED BY THIS , SINCE AS A INDIAN I ALONG WITH BILLION STRONG DID NOTHING .. 

No wonder these people who bring about so much damage get away with what they want to do , when they want to , How they want to do .. This will always continue till we wake up .. I don’t know what will it take to wake us all, or when that will happen but I know one thing that when we ALL GET UP , STAND TOGETHER , All these terrorists will disappear .. because after all they are amongst us , the enemy is within us all.. we just need to open our eyes and find out who they are ..
