Let us take a moment to remember the victims of yesterday's mumbai blasts.
The victims were innocent office goers, merchants and other sundry people.
Though life will go on as usual for most of us, some lives have turned upside down forever. Some households would have lost their sole bread winners and their only solace. Some people would be incapacitated forever. See the price that innocents have to pay for the acts of terrorists.
What did the these innocents do to deserve such a grotesque death? How long should we remain callous when innocent blood is being spilled?How many more innocent lives will be lost before India realizes the worth of her own children? Only our political class knows
but didnt our govt knew that its his bday especially when he is our "guest" for around 3 years
