    Dear Terrorist,
    Even if you are not reading this we don't care. Time and again you
    tried to disturb us and disrupt our life - killing innocent civilians
    by planting bombs in trains, buses and cars. You have tried hard to
    bring death and destruction, cause panic and fear and create communal
    disharmony but everytime you were disgustingly unsuccessful. Do you
    know how we pass our life in Mumbai? How much it takes for us to earn
    that single rupee? If you wanted to give us a shock then we are sorry
    to say that you failed miserably in your ulterior motives. Better
    look elsewere, not here.
    We are not Hindus and Muslims or Gujaratis and Marathis or Punjabis
    and Bengaliies. Nor do we distinguish ourselves as owners or workers,
    govt. employees or private employees. WE ARE MUMBAIKERS (Bombay-ites,
    if you like). We will not allow you to disrupt our life like this. On
    the last few occassions when you struck (including the 7 deadly
    blasts in a single day killing over 250 people and injuring 500+ in
    1993), we went to work next day in full strength. This time we
    cleared everything within a few hours and were back to normal - the
    vendors placing their next order, businessmen finalizing the next
    deals and the office workers rushing to catch the next train. (Yes
    the same train you targetted)
    Fathom this: Within 3 hours of the blasts, long queues of blood
    donating volunteers were seen outside various hospital, where most of
    the injured were admitted. By 12 midnight, the hospital had to issue
    a notification that blood banks were full and they didn't require any
    more blood. The next day, attendance at schools and office was close
    to 100%, trains & buses were packed to the brim, the crowds were
    The city has simply dusted itself off and moved one - perhaps with
    greater vigour.
    We are Mumbaikers and we live like brothers in times like this. So,
    do not dare to threaten us with your crackers. The spirit of Mumbai
    is very strong and can not be harmed.
    Please forward this to others. U never know, by chance it may come to
    hands of a terrorist in Afghanistan, Pakistan or Iraq and he can then
    read this message which is specially meant for him!!!
    With Love,
    From the people of Mumbai (Bombay)
