Terrorist Attacks on Mumbai

Today is indeed a sad day for me. I was born in Mumbai and still have most of my relatives living there. For the first time I feel ashamed of calling myself an Indian. How can India as a country allow this? Do we have no pride? How can these people come and attack us whenever they want? The bombers of 93 are still unpunished. A neighboring country harbors these terrorists and we are powerless to do anything about them. As sad as I am I also have to accept my own complicit role in this state of affairs. A country’s wealth is not its natural resources but its people. After getting some of the best education that could be provided in the whole world I left India and came to the US. I and every Indian who has looked away and decided to leave government and politics to criminals is equally to blame.
