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 ARE INDIANS. We will not allow you to disrupt our
life like this. On the last few occasions 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 the 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 hospitals, where most
of the injured were admitted. By 12 midnight, the hospitals 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
offices was close to 100%, trains & buses were packed to the brim,
the crowds were back.

The city has simply dusted itself off and moved on – perhaps with
greater vigour.

We are Mumbaikers, we are INDIANS and we live like brothers in times
like this. So,do not dare to threaten us with your crackers. The spirit
of INDIA 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 INDIA
