What is happening in the world? Why there is violence? The question has been raised for centuries. Some of the top leaders or the top people in power want the world to go his/her way and make life for others miserable. Discrimination is a major cause of this violence in my opinion. The middle class is suffering the most in this clash.
Mumbai has been a target of the terrorists for the last 18 years. There have been many bombings in Mumbai since the 13 coordinated bomb explosions that killed 257 people and injured 700 more on March 12, 1993 in Bombay. On December 6, 2002, a blast in a BEST bus near Ghatkopar station killed two people and injured 28. On January 27, 2003, a bicycle bomb exploded near the Vile Parle station in Mumbai, killing one person and injuring 25. On March 13, 2003, a day after the 10th anniversary of the 1993 bombings, a bomb exploded in a train compartment near the Mulund station, killing 10 people and injuring 70. On July 28, 2003, yet another blast in a BEST bus in Ghatkopar killed 4 people and injured 32. On August 25, 2003, two bombs exploded in South Mumbai. One explosion was near the Gateway of India and the other was at Zaveri Bazaar in Kalbadevi. At least 44 people were killed and 150 injured. On July 11, 2006, seven bombs exploded within 11 minutes on the Suburban Railway in Mumbai, killing 209 people, including 22 foreigners, and over 700 were injured. On November 26, 2008, men came to Mumbai with the purpose of terrorizing India. They attacked a bus terminal, a popular restaurant, the 5-star Taj Hotel and 5-star Oberoy Trident. The Taj and Oberoy were under control of the terrorists for 60 hours, which is a recent event known to the world. On Wednesday July 13, 2011 there were three bomb blasts in the busy business area. They selected the time that most of the people were outside and the blasts took the lives of more than 20 persons and over 100 were injured. To change the world, we need clean, strong and honest leaders.
