The financial capital of India, with its engines mangled, with its blood on the tracks. Again.
Ordinary, peaceful dreams, snuffed out in extraordinarily gruesome acts of violence. Again. People killed, people wounded, people missing, people in panic. Again.
The butchers immediately identified. Unharmed. Again.
A city tottering. A nation dithering. Terror. Helplessness. Inane posturing. Impotent rage. Mockery of Intelligence. Again.
Global sympathy, and apathy. Again.
When will we be able to say -- never again?
What made you angry in 2006? Tell us!
