Exactly one year back on this day ten terrorists sent by our neighbour ripped into our country of more than 120 million ,into our premier city attacking its landmarks and causing mayhem ,leaving more than 175 dead and making us lose many valiant security personell and brave officers .As the lone Kasab waits his judgement in the Arthur jail Mumbai going through the convoluted process of justice in a democratic country when all he requires is a bullet in the head ,
his compatriots who riddled innocents with bullets lie stiff in the morgue of a Mumbai hospital .
November 26 th was a wake up call to our country to a certain extent ,
the government belatedly realised we not only need bravery and valiance in our security forces but also modern equipment and good intelligence .
The terrorists armed to the teeth with grenades ,AK 47 ,and bombs landed in the city hijacking a fishing boat and infiltrated the city in pairs with ease ,
the police force armed with primitive weaponry could hardly match them with courage alone and so they fell like nine pins to our great loss ,
it needed the higly trained NSG commandos whose acrobatic feats were broadcast live into every home by the night to bring the situation under control .
But by then the damage was caused ,precious lives were lost ,porperty damaged, and the terroirsts had inflicted a scar on our honour .
I was able to watch more than two TV channels from Kerala broadcasting special programmes today lest we forget ,
more should be there ,
it sould be part of our education in the school
never can we forget this date and never should it be repeated ,
this is the only way we can repay the dead fo thier sacrifice .
The knee jerk reaction of the government as in any calamity had created some changes in the security set up which is needed but we also have to understand such an operation by terrorists would have been a sucess only with help within our country which is a sad reality .
There have been several news items of youngsters attracted to support to terrorism over the country specially from Kerala ,
proper investigation and disspation of such news is prevented by political parties who thrive on communal vote banks .
This is a great danger and will nurture malignant foces to spread all over
