The Prime Minister of India,

The President of India,

The Chief Ministers of States and the fellow citizens,

I am an educated young citizen of India. I grew up learning the esteemed history of our country and the sacrifices of our great freedom fighters which inculcated in me great respect for my motherland. I had strong faith in the national integrity and human values in our country as long as I was not old enough to understand its present situation.

From time to time, I have been witnessing tragic events in my country that hamper my belief in our government, judiciary and democracy as a whole. All of my generation feels morally handicapped. We are constantly being made a victim of regionalism, communal agitation, terrorism and what not. I strongly feel that the youth’s problems are increasing with each passing day but clearly no attention is being paid towards this by any responsible representative of the system. This often leads to an expression of emotional and personal aggression which is taken advantage by the regional and communal fanatics and radical groups.

Recent events in Mumbai show the extent of what terrorism can do to us. A bunch of 12 people can create shock in millions of lives. Will India attack terrorists only when they have killed hundreds of innocent people? Is police equipped to fight with terrorists or we need to transport NSGs to the hot spot? Is hijack situation training or any other sort of anti-terrorist training given to police? are we terror-safe?

Will there be another plane hijacked and taken to Afghanistan while Indian government not doing anything or there will be constant attacks to buildings and people after which army will kill these terrorists?

Unfortunately, the media happens to highlight such political faces all the more and thus aiding their intentions. In such circumstances, what faith can I hold in our social and political system? Please suggest me and my generation as to what can we do in order to declare that we are not unconscious or dumb and we are capable of preserving our country’s pride.

With regards,

Students listed below.

Today when i went to cast my vote, i was so confused. Please dont let this happen to us. I want to believe in our country, our government. Dont let the faith of a billion people shatter like this.
We faught for our freedom back in 1947 cos we realised what it meant.We took it for granted, and here we are. We cant roam around with the feeling that we are safe.
This is the most basic need for an individual or any democracy. Don't let us down.

Today when i went to cast my vote i was so confused. My undying optimism never lets me loose faith in our government, our people, our leaders and our country. But I've been let down, over and over again. Dont let this happen to me; dont let this happen to us. We faught for our freedom back in 1947 because we realised what it meant to be free. We took it for granted and here we are. We cant roam around n our neighbourhood with the assurance that we are safe. Its the most basic need for any individual or any country. Please dont let my faith shatter like this.

This was no terrorist attack. It had all the signatures of a commando attack.

It had stealth “undetected” entry, speed, precision, accuracy, cohesion, ferocity and aggression, clarity of thought and action, planning and reconnoitering, dry runs and degree of resistance.

I deeply condemn this dreadful act and hope that these tries do make some impact..i also feel this letter should not just be restricted to College students but students from school as well as every one can make a difference.

if the other countries are able to contain the attacks after a blow, then why isnt India, which boasts of huge availability of resources not able to tackle terrorism,even after repeated attacks..why has the government been laid back about this serious it the inefficient policies or the people who make them to be blamed??
We take no more of we shall stand united and voice till the fight against terrorism ends..

but before everything else we should try n figure out why are they doing all this.... everyone says they have no religion n stuff but lets face it these are all religiously motivated n brain washed "young kids of 17-25" who are killing in the name of religion.... if we cannot go to the root cause n finish the kashmir issue we should atleast finish these maniacs and fanatics and their camps in POK...
because of the language constraint on this blog i cannot really voice my true feelings about them but it makes me sick to say the least...

Its high time that our esteemed government actually gets together and make a full proof plan to eradicate terrorism from our home,India.i am sure a first strong step by a billion of us can send ripples through the heart of those handful of terrorist.

i hope there will be a day when such acts of terror will be viewed as attacks on our democracy and integrity and our politicians realise so.i hope that,at least on that day our politicians do what they are supposed to do as our leaders instead of turning it into a political issue and worrying more about their vote bank rather than the number of innocent lives that are lost.i hope that day i when i call myself an Indian i am proud of my country,its citizens and our leaders.that day my country shall be free.

I doubt that anything would come out of this, but I hope that I am proven wrong.

A suggestion: We need to step up the tempo and take the movement to the masses. Most of the youth doesn't enjoy access to the internet and hence if we could take up such a petition to the various colleges across the country, I guess it would have a bigger impact.

Hopefully this time the government will accept that there is being negligence from there part either it may be the intelligence or may be the security agencies like navy....
how can a group of militants carrying bags on their shoulder with full of the killing ammunition ,enters our coastal border and kill people like as if their lives has no value....
this time government should take responsibility and should take some serious steps in regard of the terrorism going through in our country...the accused should be captured as this kind of thing can't happen without the local people involvement and as the news is going on, the involvement of Pakistan behind these things ,India now should become aggressive rather being lenient and noble...
Rather doing politics on such issues and thinking of their vote bank, i think all political parties of India and also taking the help of other countries, should fight against this world wide threat of terrorism.

I am just worried on one thing that if 10 people enter in our country carrying some weapons, dry fruits etc & can shake our country, what will we do if tomorrow some
100 of them comes in and does these inhuman & insane act again.. Our agencies, our commando, our intelligence in not even this much hi tech or planned or projected to handle such situations…

I have got a classic example to share with you guys and which was much more insensate
Than this is “Operation Entebbe or Operation Thundebolt” of plane hijacking. They
Way Israeli government tackled it was incredible and an achievement in itself.

We have lot of respect & regards or our soldiers, for our commandos for those martyrs who lost their lives in saving us but this even cant be denied we could have tackled this
Situation in much more professional & master manner. They are skilled/trained the way our government is training them. Unfortunately The money being to allotted to defense in every budget is not been given proper utilized, GOD knows where it goes.

We here just want to urge our Government to be bit more affectionate towards your
Own people. We once again raise a toast to all those martyrs/sufferers.

The time has come to unite and take some stern action against this nasty barbarian act which has not once or twice but many times tried to shake the very foundation of our country. Its time time that we teach them the lesson and show that there is a our humility is not a synonym of cowardice!!

What ever people may say about Bush, I appreciate his immediate action after 9/11 when most of the world leaders are against him. at that time India allowed their air space to be used by US air force to attack Afganistan. We should immediately take the help of Israil and call a war against Pakistan and bangladesh and solve J&K problem ones-for-all. Gen. Manekshaw's forces occupied Lahore in 1971 war. Its our follishenss we went for Simla agreement hastily and lost the strong ground we were on.

Sad to see that more than 1 billion people in India are being lead by governments that are so weak that they cannot take any strong actions against terror attacks such as these. Learn from USA and kick some butt.. it's high time now. Patience is running out amongst the people. Political parties need to rise above their personal agendas and think about the country. We are pretty much a self sufficient country .. we don't need any approval from anyone to protect the country. India should probably take matter into its own hands... and bomb all the training camps in Pakistan. We have the technology.. we have the power.. and we have the will.. The only thing that's needed is the political willpower to move ahead and do the needful.

I completely agree with Kanav, I think the government needs to do something that will make a statement and not simply resign and run away from responsibilites.

there is a lot of anger ...unfortunately we will still have to depend on our shoddy politicians to make the changes.But lets not forget or let them forget this gruesome and shameful incident. We have to get rid of the extremists in politics too (modi etc.)
Lets not ignore politics as it murky, instead lets try to bring the corruption out in the open, only then will it change. If we keep nagging them they cannot ignore us.

Mr. Prime Minister,
Please do not let this horrible and inhumane tragedy stain India's integrity and reputation as a peaceful nation by starting the blame game. This is a time of healing and we must use this tragic event as the most convincing push towards drastic change in a city and country I called home for the first 13 years of my life. Please rebuild our city to its rightful place as a global community without clouding it with even more corruption and unnecessary division amongst its citizens. I have full hope and confidence that India will never fall victims to whims of such scum who parade violence while waving the flag of religion.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their families of this tragedy as well as the entire city of Mumbai.
Jai Hind.

Its very disheartening to see that a bunch of just 10 people can hold an entire city to ransom.
For a country of India's might & tommorrows superpower....our first line of defence is underprepared & facing the terrorist with 1940's type of rifles....the second line of depence is ill-equipped without night vision goggles & thermal sensore & such. In light of such inadequacies superpower status is a distant dream & a permanent SC seat is a big joke...if you cant put your house in order how you will take up the responsibilties attaches to the SC seat???

Shrey Gandhi said...

Hope this thing gets into the mind of all d politicians out there. One question they should look at:
Why did America not face any terror attacks after 9/11??
Ans: America cannot stand terror. September 2001..the attacks on WTC.
October 7, 2001...America attacks Afghanistan...
Take some examples from the world...

kanav...that letter is quite impressive. But nevertheless, i would suggest a few changes here and there...First the using of the word "I" has to be replaced by "we" for maximum impact... Maybe we could change it a little and make it more impressive. Bieng a law student, i know a thing about drafting.

All the terrorist came here with some intention....and they did what their plan was ... they knew they will die so no big deal that we killed them.. the deal is that they being so few could be alive for those three days terrorising all of us...killing so many in front of hundreds of defense team.. in our own territory... they were planned, well equipped, and knew more than we knew in our own country abt the locations ...the question is that why was the system waiting for them to come and cause the destruction...have we forgotten the train blast... where we lost so many lives... why wasnt the police alert about the same ... is there any political party involved in the same.. i dont think this was possible so easily without somebody from our system helping them... people this the time when we not just ask question but take some action... just saying we stand united doesnt have any meaning as everybody right from politicians to the police no body is united to say its our fault they are finding ways to put blame on each other... we need to flush out our politicians who are more dangerous than the terorrists... they are safe with securtiy gaurds we are not... we dont pay taxes for these politicians to fill their accounts but for our safety and for the nations...when they provide us with nothing do we need to pay it to them...or rather we give it to a body who can take the responsibility also with money that we earn...people voice ur views a little louder to be heard...

I am a journalism student of DU. Although I support you in saying that such an act of terrorism is disgusting and all, but it is also necessary to understand that all these people that you are writing letters to, the PM and President and all, are also not sitting on their backside and twirling their thumbs. They are also trying their best. It was a combined effort that the death toll stopped where it did because as per the media, the terrorists had planned to blow up the whole Taj and kill/injure at least 5000 people. The PM is also human and I am sure that this event must have caused him a lot of grief as it has us. Its not always as easy as pointing fingers. What should be done, especially by law students, is suggest a practical way out. If appropriate suggestions reach the government, I'm sure that they will also listen.

its time that all authorities at the helm of affairs raise their bars to face the uncertain,equip forces with the adequate ammunitions & trainings and not let such a disgusting episode repeat.both ruling & opposition parties should come together as 'One Nation' to work out a robust strategy that starts with an era to end terrorism....

sirisha said...

At office and at home we hardly show any patience when our work is not done.Even at the signal we start honking as soon as the lights turn green.Then why were we showing so much patience for bearing these politicians for so long?well at last the dawn has come.
For a nursery student to get admission an interview is done.entrance exams are conducted to get a seat in college.interviews for jobs are also done.Then y not for these politicians who have to lead the country?How can we let these gundas become our leaders?
we are in the same sitution as our country was 60 years ago.the difference is that the british were ruling us and now we have our own leaders making our lives hell.we have to become the gandhis of today and start the freedom movement again.

Speaking or writing about the problems will not stop all this.
One needs to understand the need of the hour,the need of the hour is geting the youth forum forward and raising there voices by nt lighting candles but by giving up few strong replies to THEM.

The Mumbai general elections 09 showed how corward people are meraly lighting up candles n shouting slogans wont slove the problems,one needs to VOTE.
