Mumbai is still not under control after two hours. I’m miles away from the city and it still feels so strange, scary and all I can do right now is write… What exactly are these people up to? Why does no place feel safe any more? 

All I could do right now is watch news on different channels. That is the only thing I could do when i was in Ahmedabad, in Baroda, and in Mumbai last time. There are so many relatives and friends scattered across the city listening to the shootings going on right now. It just seems foolish to be sitting here writing this. 
While watching Body of Lies last night, the protagonist moving through one Middle Eastern country to another, trying to figure out the roots of terrorism ended up leaving his job, just wandering off in one of those countries alone, knowing that no where in the world is safe any more. We were never safe, all that these terrorists can do is, make people aware of this fear. But if they continue the same way, we’ll not have to wait for global warming to show more effects…
Robert Frost wondered in his poem whether the world will end in Fire or Ice? The terrorists seem to have chosen the first option…and there is nothing poetic about it…
