Over the past few days, I have heard quite a few people criticize (almost ridicule) Hemant Karkare, Vijay Salaskar and Ashok Kamte for being 'stupid' enough to travel in the same vehicle during the Bombay terror attacks.

Its oh-so-fucking easy to say this. Hindsight is always 20/20. In a situation, like the one that was panning out, were they supposed to wait till 3 vehicles would escort them, one by one? Was ASI Tukaram Omble 'stupid' as well, when he chased down the terrorists on his bike and then grappled with one of them, fully knowing that the terrorist had an AK-47 in hand?

And for all those who are claiming that the 'elites' are displaying double-standards with their Gateway March, when all this while they never paid attention when the 'aam aadmi' died in train blasts, I have just one question to ask: Who the fuck stopped you from organizing these protest marches back then?
