Some unanswered questions….

1. Why was morphine gas or tear gas not used in Nariman Bhavan (Chedda House) when they zeroed on the location of the terrorist? (the question can be applied to Oberoi / Taj, but still the authorities can state that , its not used for the because there were lot of hostages in Hotel, but Nariman Bhavan there were only 5 hostages…)

2. How come the government allowed the live broadcast of the operations? (even if the terrorists are not watching the television live, they can have local support or some other means to communicate the people outside and get the updated information…)

3. Don’t you think the media was partner with terrorist? (not in terms of the support, but in terms of execution, the whole idea of terrorist was to create terror and havoc in the society…don’t you think the media has helped them in glorifying the terror events by saying two commandos were killed, ATS chief is killed etc., on the ongoing basis….haven’t the media helped the terrorist to achieve their goal?. Why did the government allow the broadcast at the first place? to make the terrorist motive a successful one?????)

4. What was the motive of the terrorist? Was it to create terror by killing people? If so they had ample chance to kill all the people who was staying the hotel, who were holed up in the ball room to save themselves? The actual action against terrorist started only after 17 hours of the siege…why haven’t they killed those many people who were unarmed and helpless??? Was killing people their only motive? Was our government negotiating with the terrorists or their masters?

5. The way the encounter specialist and the ATS chief shot was very dramatic and unbelievable, was it pre-meditated move by the terrorists?

6. Why our commandos are equipped with such low end gadgets, compared to terrorists…None of the commandos are carrying instruments like thermal heat sensors, night vision goggles, communication gadgets etc., they were relying on the age-old walkie talkie models where the spectrum can be identified by the terrorist with simple equipments and monitor all the messages send / received by the commandos…

7. Why none of the operations look like a terrorist combat operation, instead it was looking like a team of Red Cross crops….trying to help the victims to reach hospitals….

8. 50 hours of continuous combat…is it humanly possible? or are we missing something , the estimated terrorists are much more than what we can think of…where by they are operating in shifts???

9. How come the constables standing in front of Taj / Oberoi was without bullet proof vest, are they sure that the terrorist were not going to use that exit?

These are some of them……many more to follow…..
PS: This blog is not to criticize NSG Commandos or MARCOS or even Mumbai Police on their gallant efforts to help our people , sacrificed their lives to save our city. Instead its a pointer which make common man like us to think about there are certain missing links and uncertain questions which arise in our mind when we walk out of our homes…I salute all the gallant officers involved in the operations to rescue our people and save our city and my deep condolences to the family / friends who have lost their near and dear one in this attack…these questions should not be misinterpreted as criticism

13th July…Black Wednesday….

Here we go ….we have done it again…….lived through the serial blast once again to see an another one…..once again ME MUM BAI KAR…..

As usual this time also the terrorists have done it and created fear once again and make us feel insecure. What a world we live-in, over and above the media is as usual news-hungry trying to show the blast locations and the mutilated bodies just to increase the TRP!

Here is some of the images from the blast site (some part of the images are smudged to avoid the gruesome view of mutilated bodies)

Black Wednesday - 13/07/2011

Black Wednesday -07/13

 

Black Wednesday - 13-JUL-2011

Black Wednesday - 13-07-2011

Who should be blamed for this? As usual the chaos have already started, parties and media wants the Cheif Minister to step down , arent we going through enough to add more financial burdens?

Tata’s are having a very bad year

Tags

For the industrialist, 2008 started off in a grand way, with the acquisition of the iconic British marquees Jaguar and Land Rover (JLR). Coming on the back of the Corus acquisition, the JLR gave the Tata group the necessary global credentials. But things started skidding off-course when the Nano project had to be pulled out of Singur, West Bengal. Soon the global financial meltdown set in, hurting several group businesses. And now, the devastation of the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower, the jewel in the Tatas’ hospitality crown.

The Taj Mahal Hotel, with 565 rooms including 46 suites, was one of the Taj properties with very high occupancy rates. The attacks are likely to hit the hotel’s revenues for at least two years.

Aftermaths of Mumbai Terror Attacks..

The aftermath of Mumbai 26/11 makes me beleive that a handful of terrorists can havoc in the peaceful country, and we as ordinary citizens and media people put together makes it sucessful. This makes the “Saint out of a sinner”, for fundamendalists, these terrorists becomes God.

Lets review the post Mumbai 26/11 impact on our political front, we have our Home Minister steps down, our finance minister moves to Home Ministry and our Prime Minister will handle his normal job as well as the finance minstry. At this stage of global recession where we need finace minster in full swing, we have a part time finance minister, and Home Minister who has little expertise in handling Home Land Security portfolio before…this is at the national level. At state level we have our Deputy CM stepping down, our CM has put the papers, and waiting for the feedback from the high command.

Every body is waitng to captilze on the aftermath, this gives them a better platform to start a blame game. This is not limited to our politicans, even companies like LIC, on 30th of Nov LIC has circulated a sms message saying that they have cleared the LIC claim of Hemant Karkare with in 24 hours of the event, what are they trying to do? Hard-Sell that , they are prompt in processing the claim?

The business for tour operators were slow due to the global meltdown and added that the attack will impact tourist inflows to the city, both from within and outside the country. The tourism trade would take a huge hit as the season had just begun, this will also directly impact the currency liquidity in the market as well as the small time traders in mumbai who’s main business are with the tourist.

Wall Street Journal Quotes ….”The deadly attacks in Mumbai, in addition to the human toll, have damaged the city’s ambitions of becoming an international finance capital. The Taj Mahal hotel and the Oberoi Trident Hotel, luxury hotels that were both targeted, are among the most coveted retail address for luxury-goods firms that are tapping into India’s growing number of wealthy individuals.”

I am having a fear of going out to dine with my family or friends , I am having the fear that some one will barge in and start firing, haven’t the terrorists being successful in impacting my thought process about security at my town.  During the initial phase of the attacks the number of terrorists were more than 20, now they are accounting only for 10, so whats the truth, do we still have some terrorists roaming in our neighborhood? Am I panicked? or Am I panicked by the media by providing me with the unwarranted news?

Our Insane Media adds fuel…

If these are not enough, our media is making statements like “We should rage war on the neighbors” , these kind of statements make our investors / foreign investors to think twice before they invest in the business process. And our media is keep on forgetting that there are lot of people in Fortune 1000 companies who are watching India closely, as some of their business process are outsourced here either as BPO / ITES or in terms of Software development / support. These kind of statements can have a big impact to these industries.

If I am a Fortune 1000 Company outsourcing my work to India here is my first thought…What would happen to my operations if a full-scale war broke out between Pakistan and India ? The answer is , I will suffer a catastrophic loss of their operations. These kind of events can bring down the day to day oursourcing operations to stand-still and who will be responsible for this? We dont have a definite answer for this and we will never have it…since for us these kind of teror operations become a day to day event, Oh there was a blast in Kurla last week, but everything is normal today…and the media will what ever possible to blame the politicians and the authorities , not because they are concerned about the people, but, they will get more TRPs ….before the analysis and the report come in we will start the blame game, and the funny thing is they wont even apologize the people whom they have defamed out of mistake…what we are forgetting in the middle of this is, these statements and blame games has direct impact on our small time business man, export business etc., as everybody is watching us through the media….if you give out the wrong information without being official, the people are going to get scared.

At no point any of the Indian officals has said, they are going to attack Pakistan, but the media has started their own view point by saying that we will attack Pakistan, this has created so much panic that Rice has to fly down to India immediately so that the tensions between India and Pakistan has reduced and no war will started…

Can some one leash the media whos unleased and spreading rumors?
