With three serial blasts shattering the peace of the metropolis
Wednesday evening, memories of 26/11 came back to haunt survivors
of that terror attack.
Thirty-one-year-old Sourav Mishra, who was shot in his wrist that
fateful evening, felt a sense of deep pain and said he has lost
faith in the system.
"While returning by the local train I thought of rushing to the
blast sites and helping the victims, but I could not muster the
courage of witnessing gory sights. I am feeling helpless," Mishra
Mishra said he doesn't want to watch television news channel as it
will bring back the memories of the Mumbai 26/11 attack.
"I don't want to watch any channel, in fact I want to stay away
from any kind of news pertaining to the blasts," he said.
"Coming to Mumbai and slaughtering people has become business as
usual. It is easy for the terrorists to penetrate the security and
kill people," said Mishra on a despondent note.
"We don't need to pay taxes to the government as long as innocent
citizens are not protected," he said.
"I am upset as the memories of 26/11 have come back to haunt me
which had started to fade away over time. It is ironical that
common people abide by the law and these terrorists break them
every time," said Mishra.
On Nov 26, 2008, Ajmal Kasab and nine other gunmen let loose
mayhem in Mumbai killing a total of 166 people during a 60-hour
terror attack. While Kasab was the sole gunman caught alive, his
nine accomplices were killed in the fight with security forces.
