Vir Sanghvi has an interesting perspective on 26/11 and Mumbai’s reaction. Check it out. Its funny (and sad) how true it is that “this too shall pass” I remember feeling absolutely numb when it all went down, and now I might linger momentarily if I see a picture of the poster boy terrorist Kasab who haunted my dreams immediately after it all went down. I remember walking by the Taj the other day (on my way to Indigo Deli for their utterly divine turkey, bacon and cranberry sauce sandwich) and musing that the dome looks a lot smaller than it did when it was on fire, even on TV.
I don’t know if we’re supposed to move one, I just know that we have. And now my mind wanders to the bloodless carnage I’ve witnessed recently where some 300 employees at Radio Mirchi and 47 at MTV were given their dues and told not to come in from Monday, countless others have taken upto 35% pay cuts and we’ve had our casualties today too and it sucks and that’s life. The only thing we know for sure is that “this too shall pass.”
