When will we learn????

Mumbai now is like the magic ball that v used to get...... It bounces back with alacrity every single time.... and bouncing back higher and faster too.
This is the SOP that the city has been living on for the past 15 years when its been terrorised and torn apart by INTERNAL and external forces. There will be the most horrific and vile act commited by hands that can never be caught which will change the futures of innumerable families......
But then the media and the political honchos come on and compliment all and sundry on their amazing resilience and everyone starts walking around with smug selfsatisfied smiles and tales of how normal people were sooo helpful.

I have a feeling that the only people who have been actually trained for damage control is the common Mumbaikar. They have been through so many horrors in the recent past that, the moment something happens, they are ready with water, biscuts and the like to distribute to the affected.

On TV and on ensuing reports, there seemed to be no government backed attempt at controlling the situation, and (deserving special mention) Rajdeep Sardesai was positively nauseating as he exuded immense pride on CNN-IBN being the first on the scene....... hope somebody awards him a gold medal or something or at least help him out by getting the stick out from where ever its lodged.

Of course its great that people are ready to help others in their time of need, but the Media tends to focus only on this and not on the most important factor of .. How???? How to ensure that this never happens again???? The who, why,what for and all that are just points of discussion for forums and coffee shops....... discuss....argue..... and forget. We are perhaps the most indifferent country in the world when it comes to terrorism.

The greatest diplomats in the world will pat themselves on the back for the fact that the United States is awakening to the reality of terrorism in India....... what????? If the 93 bombings, parlimentary attacks, hourly bombings in kashmir cant wake them up, what can a measly 7 blasts do????? They get more than that in an hour in IRAQ.

And if they do wake up, then what????? They will come into India, weed out the terrorists and make our country a safe place to live again??????

How I wish for a national leader with BALLS to actually do something other than just look tearful and commiserate with the victims.

And life goes on........ till the next attack.

My girl is still mad at me......
Now its because I have a bad back!! Ok ... ok no sniggers required. She is in India and i am here in Dubai, so its quite not the sniggery kind of reason. Its cause I didnt take off and go to the doctor when she asked me to as I had a very important meeting.
I ask u, what kind of reason is that to totally ignore a smart, handsome, well-built, macho(she does read my blog at times, might convince her of all this if I repeat it enough) guy, who is suffering pain mixed with neglect now?????? This is exactly the reason noone understands women...... one second, she is all, "my poor baby.....", then suddenly, "since u dont value what i say... bye"!!!
And y is it that its always the guys fault????

"I want to cut my hair short..."
"I dont think so, U look better in long hair.."
"U just wont let me do anything I want... bye"

Whats this???? Does this actually make any sense???? who is forcing who to forsake what?????

I am only starting to realize the truth....

If I have to be right, I just have to agree...... constantly.... no..... every time.

But, then..... its all worth it...... the way her eyes light up when i come in to the room............ the way she laughs away all my idiosyncrasies...... how happy she sounds to hear my vioce ........ the way she smiles.......

Goddddddddd!!!!!!!!! I am a slave!!!!!!!!!!!
