Mumbai Attack: Why {‘Me’mbai} … will never be my question!

Mumbai -TREE Grace -Strength!

Mumbai -TREE Grace -Strength!

 

Why {‘Me’mbai} … will never be my question!

 

The first breath of air that I ever took till the current letters that I am keying in…. Every minuscule moment screams of the word MUMBAI.

 

I grew up proudly in this beauty of a land which we term, as the city of dreams. The energy and drive that Mumbai can bring for anyone is, in human terms, unreal and eccentric. Growing up here, all I ever worried about was nothing other than ‘just the fear of growing too slow’.

 

For I knew, that my quick paced city was safe and would keep me safe.

 

Life was driven by the ambition of achievement and passion, nothing more.

 

Life was socially or otherwise, always strictly business for every Mumbaikar. 

 

Mumbai never had Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs or any other community. Mumbai in its most awful state of affairs always seemed to come to a consensus on the basis of an understanding but has stood strong and has returned hitting harder.

 

We are a cash rich city by means of real estate, human resource and the dream builders of the world. At the end of the day, everyone knows… There is only one Hope on the face of this planet… that can withstand any trial, wherein so many cultures and dreams have been built from and with nothingness, Our Mumbai.

 

But this week, Mumbai met with an attempt which has made things very personal.

 

In the name of community and insane inhumanness innocent lives were driven into havoc. We were attacked by those who had nothing in their minds, but a canvas of painting the city red. Of giving a message to all: Stay away from this city …..

 

As of date, we have earned over decades the bloody audacity to shout at the top of our voice that we are going to welcome the world more than ever and by God, will the world too take this city with more respect than ever before.

 

We will and have already bounced back to grow, party and capitalize harder than anyone could ever dream of.

 

No one is scared…… bloody not even close…. Now the city is going to have more guests, more visitors and tourists than ever before. All will have the hot and crispy groundnuts outside the Taj Mahal Hotel once again and hang out. Drive around the Marine Drive and catch a movie at Metro this week.

 

Why, because, WHY MUMBAI, will never be my question. You wanted to hit the best… Thanks for reminding the billions all over, that the city of dreams is actually a city that never sleeps. It is actually built with people that love this land and she gets her energy from the blood running through each of our veins. The city has never slept and will never sleep. We will grow beyond what anyone can fathom and will welcome billions more to this land to grow along with us everyday.

 

We are dreams… We are hope… We are strength…… The commandos, the NSG and every brave staff at the hotels, the amazing heart of every civilian, The Trident, Nariman House, Taj, Colaba, CST and all over … gave us more hope than ever before. A heartflet sincere Thanks to each of the heroes. We will always bounce back and hit harder than one can ever EVER in their bloody sense of the term even think of.

 

I will never ask why M{e}mbai.. I know… ‘coz people always go after what’s the best….. It’s sad… for the rest… ‘coz they will never get even an ounce of it…. It’s not for cowards, it’s not for Losers…. It’s for the mighty strong who face Life… not from behind a bush…but Face to face!

 

M{e}mbai!

 

Look at us – We are ready to rock the world again!

    I have been in Mumbai since 1997, in october 2008 i moves out of mumbai and shifted to dubai, since my mom and dad were in Dubai.

    26th november 2008, i was glued to the ndtv website soaking in as much as i could about whatever is happening in Mumbai. it has been my home for 10 years, and i can tell you that i am very very very angry. if there is one emotion i feel towards India right now, it is not of intigration it is not of staying composed and united it is that of getting angry , and getting very angry, with the government, with the beaureucrates, with the Mp’s with the self proclaimed TIGER of maharashtra, with the self proclaimed ‘reformer’ of maharashtra.
    ever since 26th november i make sure that i cry, and i cry with tears of anger, not with tears of loss.

    DO NOT TELL ME ABOUT YOUR LOSS
    AS I EMPITHISE WITH YOUR MELANCHOLY
    DO NOT BEG FOR ME TO HELP YOU
    OR DEMAND FOR ME TO STAND WITH YOU
    DO NOT ASK ME TO WIPE YOU TEARS
    AS I AM IN TEARS MYSELF
    DO NOT ASK ME TO BOUNCE BACK TO LIFE
    AS I WILL NOT

    TELL ME TO MARCH WITH YOU
    AND BREAK THE BONES OF THE ONE WHO TOUCHED YOU
    TELL ME TO RIP HIS MASK
    THE ONE WHO SMILES WITH MIRTH UNDERNEATH
    TELL ME TO WRIGGLE THE WRISTS OF THOSE
    WHO ARE HAND IN GLOVE WITH THE ENEMY

    I WANT MY PAIN TO GROW
    I WANT THE VENOM INSIDE OF ME
    TO STING THE ONE RESPONSIBLE

    BUT THEN AGAIN I WONDER ITS NOT JUST ONE
    WHO IS RESPONSIBLE
    IT IS THE ENTIRE GOD DAMND SYSTEM
    THAT DROVE ME TO THIS SPITE

    I WILL NOT THINK AS A HINDU
    I WILL NOT THINK AS A MAHARASHTRIAN
    I WILL THINK AS A HUMAN BEING
    A SOUL WHO IS HURT
    A SOUL WHO WANTS VENGENCE
    A SOUL WHO WANTS ANSWERES
    A SOUL WHO WILL GET ANGRY

    JAI HIND

    Things I would like to see- Plz comment if you agree or disagree

    1) A CEO selected by ppl for mumbai who has the authority and powers to take action- my choice Milind deora.
    2) Stop welcoming pakistani artist, etc- we and our artist are not welcomed there.
    3) Close all the Extreme islamic schools- like Australian PM says If you want to line in Aus
    practise our culture and speak our language. ( Plz read his article on my earlier notes)
    4) Reduce Z security for VIPs, give them Y security as in my view who wants to attack a Politician and even if someone does its time for them to feel the heat now and I am sure no one would miss them. ( 60% of NSG is used for Z security )
    5) Like the sms says if a shooter gets Gold in Olympics the Govet gives him 3crore but a
    real life shooter ( Marco, cops, nsg,etc) who die for the country get just 5lakhs. Its sad
    guys. My view every soldier who is killed protecting us should get atleast 75 lakhs to a crore. Com on guys if yuvraj hits 3 sixes in a match his value goes up by a crore. So this is Defi not more.
    6) Our cops should have automatic weapons. Dont just put all the money in making police stations an buying qualis ,cars,etc.
    7)Stop all Rail routes and Buses to and from Pakis. Who wants good relations with them. We have given them many chances. nahi suderengee
    8) N number of bangladeshi illegally come to mumbai for work. Someth needs to be done abt this.
    9) Stop paying taxes if no results. Mumbai is the highest tax payer in India.
    10) And last PLEASE DONT FORGET WHAT HAS HAPPENED.REMAIN ANGRY. ASK POLITICIANS FOR ANSWERS. COS IT CAN HAPPEN AGAIN.

    Just to add BOMBAY WAS BETTER THAN MUMABI.
