I dont know what to feel or think. To know where its happening. Areas I cross almost everyday. To think of the Taj which I had seen atop the ferry on Saturday and sighed at the beauty. Thinking it was any day a better sight than Gateway of India. Watching it burn.
To think of the people in the waiting room at CST which turned into a morgue.
Taj where the board of the Co were put up and finally have come out at 5am according to fellow MTs.
The hijacked police van which fired on civilians.
Watching Hemant Karkare getting briefed and wearing a helmet yesterday night. Thinking that he seems like a big shot who would probably never get a hair out of place. Waking upto the news of his death.
This is fucked up beyond measure. Its too close for comfort. Almost personal.Feeling emotional as if sadness has torn the indifference one develops to these attacks.
Mumbai has stopped for a day. My city has stopped to hold its breath.
Tomorrow maybe it will be business as usual.
