They say it is India’s 9/11. I think I have heard that before. Maybe when they attacked the Parliament. Does it matter?
Reports like this come out once in a while and then are later discarded. Why?
The ATS team were interviewed by the TV last week or so. Did you know all of them were killed?
They attacked Leopold’s. Did they read Shantaram?
I was roaming on the same streets 3 days ago with a friend from far away while she absorbed everything on her first day in the city. I wanted her to have a safe journey, her first in this part of the world. Had this happened then, how safe would I have felt? How could I be my usual reassuring self?
How safe do I feel now?
This is Bombay, 27 November 2008. I am terrified. Petrified.
