On returning from Kabul, one of the most memorable and enriching journeys in my life, I was at the Taj Hotel in Bombay for tea, and on seeing the security measures outside had remarked: India may soon become another Afghanistan... Little did I know then, just two weeks later, Bombay would become a war zone, and that very space along with several others, would be the playing field of a macabre terror assault, on not just hundreds of innocent victims, but on all humanity.
