We salute the Mumbai attack martyrs

Major Sandeep Unnikrishna and Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief Hemant Karkare

Ultimately Mumbai seize ended on last Saturday after a four day long fierce gun battle between our security guards and unscrupulous desperadoes who holed up the old Taj and other hotels of Mumbai to hit the spirit of Indian nation. We bade farewell to our brave security personnel who are certainly real heroes of our nation. To protect the lives of their brethren irrespective of nation, caste, creed and religion, they fought to their life to vanquish the terrorists who were well skilled and well equipped with sophisticated weapons. This unprecedented fidayeen attack has left over hundred dead and injured. Among death was the head of the Maharashtra police's anti-terrorism squad, Hemant Karkare and two other NSG commandos and many other security guards.

No doubt, Mumbai attack has left the Indian people panic stricken and the whole nation paralysed. People aghast with fear glued to their TV sets witnessed the live telecast of this terror encounter and realized how insecure our lives even in our own country. Can any one of the politicians imagine the fright of those who were trapped inside the hotel rooms with little hope of life? Can they assess the intensity of grief and agony that has overtaken the families and relatives of those who lost their lives?

In the same way, last month also 13 serial bomb blasts rocked Assam. Before it, terrorists assailed Bangalore. In the past one year, India has witnessed some of the worst terrorist attacks.

Enough is enough. Could our so called leaders dare to stop all that has happened in Mumbai and in the country in the last one year? Where is Raj Thakeray who created issues out of regionalism? Why so much security lapse on the part of Government? Could old Taj be able to regain its pristine beauty and pride? What we can do except condemning?

After every terror attack, people are being promised to step up the security. But where is the security? Government has still not taken proper preventive measures to combat terrorism. Our leaders only condemn and try to manipulate such sensitive issues to increase their vote banks. These serial terror attacks have revealed the bitter truth that our Government is vulnerable to terrorism. Its machinery has somewhere failed to tackle the challenge posed by the terrorists.

We all salute our security guards who sacrificed their lives to uphold our national pride.

The 'Star' Krishankant Sinha of Space City Sigma

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi It is a myth that the all-knowing Internet knows everything. One such myth relates to old television stuff aired on Doordarshan before 1990. Search in Google “Space City Sigma”, the search engine would throw up reminiscent results from the people who still long for those days. Those days were really golden days. Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to

Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur

By Ranita Sinha, Kolkata Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Thakur, the great saint of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Community was born on 26th October, 1871, in a remote village of Cachar district called Baropua in the state of Assam. He was born to a Xatriya Manipuri family. His father Sri Sanatan Pandit was a Sanskrit teacher and mother Srimati Malati Devi, a house wife. Sadhu Baba from his childhood was indifferent to all worldly happenings. He was engrossed in chanting the name of Lord Krishna. Along with other students of his age, Sadhu Baba started taking lessons of grammar and other spiritual literature from his father. At a very young age he lost his mother but he was brought up with utmost love and care by his step mother. At the age of eighteen, Sadhu baba lost his father, so, to continue his spiritual education under the guidance of Rajpandit Mineshwas Swarbabhwam Bhattacherjee, he went to Tripura. But within one year he made up his mind to visit all the holy places and as such he took permis
