BOMBay, again!!!

I guess when large scale death and destruction close to home begins to elicit a sense of deja vu, it's time to feel really scared :(. I realise that I'm being very selfish. A lot of people are dead and hurt. Thus far, it has remained non-personal for me. I am extremely glad for that, and I'm hoping, praying really, that it stays that way. Does that make me a bad person?

Crisis has a way of bringing out the best and sometimes the worse in people. It also catalyses an avalanche of opinion. I really wish though, that right now, people would keep their opinions to themselves and just pray that this ends. Soon. There will be time enough for the rest later...

Feeling: scared :(

Amen! Here, I'm stuck surrounded by a cascade of conflicting, international opinions by people who don't understand the first thing about either Bombay or India. Thankfully, there are some that do, and they keep their mouths shut other than to offer condolences.

And no, it does not make you a bad person by any measure. Everyone hopes for the same thing.
