We must not forget..
A year has passed since the terrible Mumbai terror attacks.
Has anything really changed?
Are we better equipped to prevent or at least minimize the damage some random inexplicable unjustifiable acts of violence cause to thousands of innocent lives?
Are our politicians firmer in their resolve to provide greater security to the common man and offer speedy rehabilitation to those affected?
Are our security forces better trained to deal with such attacks in the future?
Will our media show more restraint, sensitivity and plain common sense while covering such events?
Or has apathy and indifference, our two greatest weapons to combat the innumerable injustices that are perpetrated in our society on a daily basis, have become so powerful that we fail to even let the memory of the attacks affect us?
We asked the same questions after the July 2006 train bombings and we asked them again last year. Do we want to ask them again?
Resilience must never become indifference.
