"it is not the fault of the gentlemen
sitting in the office who is responsible for corruption but the
rascal inside him"
It was the month of November in India when
about ten pakistani came to Mumbai by the sea route. Many people
from Pakistan had been coming to India. So what is the so big
about these 10 individuals. Well, these 10 people from the land
of Pakistan came to Mumbai with two fully loaded guns in hand
which could kill almost 20 people at one go and and a bag full of
explosives. Of course, their motive was not to spread peace but
to do something which could shake the entire nation. They were
half successful in their motive as they wanted to kill as many
people as possible not caring that who is muslim or who is hindu,
what mattered was blood and blood and more blood. About 150
people died in the Mumbai attack and this is just an official
ONE MONTH BEFORE
"What's up! kunal, why did you called me so
early in the morning"? says Sabir Mehta. Sabir Mehta is the head
of national security agency( of courese India) and kunal rawat is
his deputy. kunal replies " Sir, there is some information for
you, I do not want to disturb you at 4 in the morning but I was
not able to hold my self back". "Go on, say, what is the
information all about." Says sabir. Kunal replies, "Not here sir,
lets go to the conference room, It is something very important
and should not be disclosed, it is better it remains between the
senior department." Sabir said, "Ok, lets go then."
Sabir and kunal enters the conference room
where divya is waiting for them. Divya says, "Do you know what,
when kunal called me , I thought, he is again asking me for
coffee but this time he really has some important information
sir". Kunal clears his throat and says, "Good joke, can we work
now." After that kunal shows sabir a video. Sabir gets stunned
after watching it. "what the fuck,How is this possible ,
immediately call the PM(prime minister). Divya says, "No sir, we
should wait a bit, this can be hoax, I mean how can you say that
this is real?" "What do you mean, Ms. Divya Dixit, this is NSA
and by saying this you are letting this agency down." shouts
kunal. Well kunal has a soft cornor for divya, but when some one
doubts his job than he gets furious. Divya answers gently
(ironical, a girl being gentle), " when I was in training , I was
taught that we- the NSA people should not react in haste and
every information we gather is attached with a very silly modal
called 'might' , I think, I am rite and this is why I am putting
up this voice, I am not at all doubting your work kunal but you
can not be sure about this video". As always divya is right and
the boss confirms it. Sabir says, "Yes, I think divya is right ,
we shud not act in haste, Good job by you but go and make sure
that this is not a hoax video". Kunal replies " ok sir, I will
doo that". Sabir takes the advice of his subordinates again-"
what do u think, shall we discuss this with other people in the
office". "it will be good if we keep this within ourselves for
next few days, I hope u do not mind sir but I am not doubting any
one" said kunal. "hmmm, ok, so kunal do what I have told you and
then we will see how it goes, any questions, then ask now!." "No
sir" replies kunal and divya.
23rd NOVEMBER 2008
NSA head sabir is busy in a meeting with
the prime minister over the security concerns. The meeting is
held in the meeting hall @ NSA headquarters. Sabir and PM are
discussing about the security over India- englandcricket test
series as England were resisting to come to India to play the two
match test series but it is onlybecause of the surety given by
the PM that English players are coming to India. PM wants full
surety by NSA now. PMasks " sabir, is everything right or there
is problem, tell me I have given clearance to the test series".
Sabir-" sorry sir, but you should had asked me before giving the
clearance". PM-" I do not understand, are you trying to say that
something is going to happen". Sabir do not want to tell the PM
about the video he saw almost one month before but gives a little
indication. He says-" I cannot say that something is going to
happen but there are some signs, sir". PM - "o god, I did a
blunder, but now I cannot let the country down by refusing the
the players about security concerns". Sabir-" sorry to say sir
but if some thing happens to the players than country will be let
down too in that case also but we can provide the players with
the top class security". PM- "yes, that will do". As the meeting
was on, kunal came running in to the meeting area. He was not
able to catch his breathe not because he came running from his
office which was @ 200 meters of distance but it was the proof in
his hand about that video".
Sabir-" what happened kunal, why didyou
came in without permission". Well, kunal and sabir are more of
best of colleagues then a boss or subordinate but still sabir has
to show a bit anger in front of the PM. Kunal says-" I have
something which is very important, we have to cancel england's
tour to India, immediately". PM-"what are you talking about,
sabir what is this going on, you are hiding something from me".
Sabir finally told the PM about the video and now kunal came in
with a fresh video in which a leader of a terrorist organistaion
warned India that something big is going to happen.
PM talks to the cricket board of India. The
boss of cricket board do not wants to cancel the tour as it will
be great loss to them. The board wants full security in place of
cancellation of the test series. After talking to the boss of the
board PM again comes to NSA people. He says-" look sabir, there
is no need to leak this thing in media or anywhere. We cannot
cancel this tour as it will be a great loss of money and we can
provide full security for players. The party president is also
not in favour of cancellation and you yourself is not sure about
it". Kunal angrily says- " we are sure, sir". PM -" I know but
now thereis no stepping back for us". Kunal in sheer anger-" then
please tell me, why the hell NSA is …..this is…..". sabir stops
kunal " relax kunal and go outside, I am coming". Kunal not
caring about his job takes the video proof from sabir and exits
24th NOVEMBER 2008
Its 8 in the morning and kunal is still in
the office. He has worked 24 hours to find out more about the
video but has failed. He is half slept and half awake in his
chair when sabir comes in the room. " hey you!, wake up, I know
that you are still unmarried but still you have a mother at
home". Kunal says-" I do not want to work with NSA,,,,,,now".
Sabir who is surprise after listening this from the mouth of
NSA's best man says-" what, have you gone nuts, you are needed
here, there is lot to do". Kunal gets up from his chair angrily
and says-"wow,, I am needed in NSA because everytime I go there
to the top people sitting in those AC rooms called ministers to
listen that money is more important than a human life,,, tell me
sir, that is why I am needed here. We work here like owls, not
thinking about our personal life, and then our work is not
apprecitated and then many lives are ……huh…I can't speak more".
Sabir-" I know what you are feeling at this point of time kunal
but our job is to collect information and then transfer the
information to those gentlemen who runs our country,,that's it..
that all we can do,,,so chill". Kunal still in anger-" huh, you
call this bastards gentlemen, this gentlemen who treat money
above human lives I call them rascals". " actually GENTLEMEN
RASCALS" divya says. Divya is as much angry as kunal but still
she is more mateur that kunal. Sabir receives a call from PM.
After chating with the PM sabir looks up to the ceiling fan and
says-" fucker, he wants me to say lie to media people, I am going
to PM's office and kunal just chill and take some rest , you are
allowed to go home, divya u can take over the
Now divya and kunal are left alone in the
office. Divya says to kunal-"go take some rest, you need it badly
and your mother must be waiting for you". Kunal replies-" no, I
am al rite, I have called amma and said that I ll come tomorrow".
Divya-" do you want coffee".
Kunal says-" no, I will have coffee,".
Divya surprised with kunal's answer-" hey! I said coffee only,
kunal you need to take rest, please go to home and sleep". Kunal
after few silent moments says to divya-" divya,". Divya is busy
in arranging some files but still replies-" ya, say, what were
you saying". Kunal replies-" something big is gonna happen for
sure, I bet you!". Kunal is still looking the video tape and
divya stopped arranging the files now and looks to kunal and
says-" how can you say that?". "do you remember sajid mansur
khan, the lashkar militant". Divya-"yes, I do". Kunal now looks
in the eyes of divya and says-" HE IS BACK".
SOMEWHERE IN PAKISTAN
In pakistan, about 50 terrorists were
taking army like training much like our brave soldiers but the
only difference is that the soldiers give their life for a reason
enough for us to understand or may be more than enough but the
terrorists give their life for a reason which I think cannot be
seen even by Einstein. But there is something where these
terrorists are ahead of us and I am not talking about using the
modern technology to its best use or to say its worst but acting
on the information collected by the other
Bilal masud is the chief of jaamat-u-dawa
(acting as political party in Pakistan). He speaks to a group of
50 terrorists-"by the sake of allah tallah, the day has come
after a very long time when again we will do something that will
shake this world and with it India. I have selected 10 names out
of you who will go to India on a mission, tell me how many of you
are ready". The crowd of 50 shouts-"all of us". Bilal-"good!, I
am proud of you, sajid bhai has planned everything, the names are
the following". Soon the names were called and all the ten
terrorist selected got ready to leave India".
THE BLACK DAY (26th NOV,
AT NSA HEADQUARTERS
Divya, sabir, kunal and other members of
NSA are discussing the same old problem of India- you are rite.
Suddenly, phone rings. Divya picks up the phone. She gets shocked
after hearing what was said on phone and after the putting the
receiver off she looks at sabir. Each person in that room is
looking to her to find out what was said on the
Kunal asks-"what happened, who was it".
Divya answers-" it was kashif-our informer". Sabir (now in
tension)-"so, what did he said?" divya after 2 minutes of silence
finally anwers-" in 5 minutes time 10 terrorist will reach Mumbai
and theywill attack different locations". There is silence in the
room again. Kunal-"nothing surprising, I told u sabir, look, they
are ten times ahead of us". Sabir-" fuck! They planned it".
Divya-"in the video it was about sachin tendulkar's assassination
then why the hell they came to Mumbai port….oh….god………now I got
it…..shit, I feel like a stupid". Sabir-"it means they knew that
army commandos are on duty at gateway of India, in order to get
rid of them they sent us a video in which they warned us that
lives of English cricketers and sachin tendulkar is in danger.".
kunal-" and then those commandos were placed for securing the
Indian and English cricketers and gateway of India is left with 5
policemen,,,huh, or should I say 5 poor people in khaki dress
with lathi in hand and a gun. The worst part is lathi is more
useful than that blody gun". Divya-"guys, we still can do
something, we have to inform the police". Kunal in disgust gets
up from his chair andsays-" they themselves must have informed
the police by now, go on enjoy the cricket match, what an irony
India is winning there and here we just lost"
Sabir-"switch on the television set, be
fast". The newsreaded read the news that only 5 terrorist have
entered the city of Mumbai, but they were not wrong because it
was just the starting.
Its now 5 in the morning and NSA chief
sabir has answered almost 100 calls from delhi and now receives a
new one. At NSA there is a rule that you may miss the call from
your mother or any other person but do not dare to miss the call
from delhi. Sabir picks up the phone-"hello, sabir Mehta here".
It 's the PM"S call.
Sabir-"hello sir, I don't think it is the
right time to say this but still 'good morning'."
PM answers-"yes, sabir. It is one of the
worst day of my life. I called you to get an answer that how the
terrorists attacked mimbai, what you said was wrong, I mean your
information, your facts,,,what about them?". Sabir answers-"facts
are the enemies of truth sir, that's all I can say at this point
of time." PM says-"but what about the video in which it was shown
that life of English and Indian cricketers is in danger, you were
wrong there". Sabir replies-"no sir, I was not wrong. Both …I
mean the video and these attacks are interlinked with each
other". PM-"all right, I want to see tomorrow in delhi". Sabir
replies back in anger-"for what purpose, to play the blame game,
sorry sir but I am not going to waste my time in these
unpurposeful meetings". Sabir puts the receiver
27th NOVEMBER 2008
It's 8 in the morning and the news is that
the NSG commandos have killed all the terrorist who hid them
selves in nariman house and at the trident. Only two terrorists
are left who are hiding @ the taj hotel. On the satellite phones
, the terrorists are receiving voices of sajid mansur khan (the
brainchild if the attacks)-"there is a famous Indian politician
in the hotel, go no and kill himand kill till the last breathe of
your life, allah bless both of you…create a history today". At 12
in the midnight NSG chief sanjay kapoor with his 12 brave
commandos makes a plan to enter the 3rd floor of the hotel where
the terrorists were hiding themselves.
Sanjay-"boys! Those 2 terrorists are on the
3rd floor, I want to make 3 teams. Manohar singh, ketan sharma,
zenab khan will be in one team called tiger and ketan you will
lead. Manoj, rahul and shankar will be in second team called lion
and manoj will lead the team and lastly meer, prabha shankar,
ismail and sunil is the other team led by meer, your team's name
is leopard. Manoj, I want you to be at the ground so as the
terrorist runs then they wud be caught , meer you will lead your
team through stairs and ketan you will lead your team from top
through terrace. Any questions, boys?"
All of them together-"no, sir".
Sanjay-"good gentlemen(in army good does not mean that your work
is appreciated, it is just a way of saying O.k.) all of you will
be in touch with me and do not forget to mention your team's name
before communicating". All of them-" ok sir". sanjay-"one last
thing, commandos, I do not want to meet those terrorist alive, go
and kill the bastards------GOOD LUCK, god bless you
Those 12 brave people run fearlessly
towards their respective destinations. Manohar, ketan and zenab
goes to the terrace and starts coming down to the 3rd floor one
by one. Manoj and his team take the position on the ground
level". Meer and his team has to face the heat first. They slowly
climb the stairs and reach the second floor. Meer orders ismail
to move ahead and clear the way and then give the signal that
everything is clear. Finally, they reach the 3rd floor. Suddenly
one terrorist fires from the back ( as cowards can not face the
brave from front) and one of the bullets hit prabha shankar( a
commando from land of bihar here to save the life of raj
thakray's MUMBAI) as he saves his leader meer singh and gives his
life there only. Others hide themselves to take protection but
prabha shankar finds himself in the middle of the corridor.
Ismail shouts " prabha, get up ,,cmon get up". Meer orders ismail
-" shut up! Ismail prabha is dead now and don't let the terrorist
know our positions for god sake". Prabha and ismail were good
friends. The coward again throws a hand grenade. Ismail jumps on
the hand grenade so as to save his other colleagues and gives his
life. In the meantime sanjay chats with meer on the walky talky-"
team leopard, team leopard,,alpha here…out"( you have to say out
after you complete a sentence on the walky phone as to let the
other guy know that you have completed your sentence). Meer-"
leopard here,,,alpha…out". Sanjay-"whats the situation there
…out". Meer-" 2 boys are no more sir,, out". Sanjay-"do not
worry, do not let their sacrifice go waste, ketan must have
reached 3rd floor by now…good luck over and out".
After two hours of tussel, meer has finally
located where the terrorist is hiding himself. He orders sunil to
throw a hand grenade to the left side of the restaurant so that
the terrorist runs to the right side. Meer-"sunil, throw the hand
grenade to the left table an I will shoot the bastard if he
runs". Sunil does what was ordered and the plan works as the
terrorist runs to the right side and he shoots him and job done.
One of the two terrorist is killed now. Meer looks at the dead
terrorist and says-"bye bye,,,you a####le". Meer comes to sunil
and says-"gud job buddy, ashok chakra is done for
They move towards the other room where the
second terrorosit was hidden. The room was next to the balcony
area. As they tried to open the door, suddenly the terrorist ran
simultaneously firing at the soldiers. Luckily they escaped the
death but terrorist ran away. They can see him runnig but cannot
do much. But suudenly again ketan jumps in the corridor from the
top and fires at the terrorist , the bullet hits him in his hand
and legs but still he manages to run away but he makes another
big mistakes. He runs down to the ground floor where manoj is
eagerly waiting for him. Manij shoots at him and does the final
On the 3rd floor, sunil and meer are
bringing out the body of the 1st terrorist they killed in
restaurant. Sunil says to meer-"why did you said, I will get
ashok chakra". Meer replies-"because you showed bravery and
killed the this bastard". Sunik-"but I think ashok chakra is for
those commandos who die in the war". Meer-"hahahahaha!, now you
get my joke". Sunil-"hehehe…very funny".
Now Mumbai was safe at least from the 10
terrorists. But stll 1000 lives were gone.
Sanjay-" I am proud od you boys,
congratulations, we did it".
Sanjay's 8 years old daughter namrata
called his father to see if he is father is al
Namrata-"hello, pa….how are you….are you
fine or not?. I am scared". Sanjay-"why are you scared, I am al
rite my baby. Namrata-"when are you coming back, I want to see
you pa". sanjay-"I will be back by Monday, you don't worry, I am
fine….howz your kitty". Namrata-"kitty is fine, she also misses
you". Sanjay-"once I come back, we will play together alrite, now
bye,,,take care baby".
Sanjay lost his wife when his wife gave
birth to namrata and at that time he was fighting the war in
kargil. After getting the news of death of his wife, he did not
went back but continued fighting in battle field.
Very far away from battle field at NSA,
there were few helpless people trying to do a job which had no
meaning really. Sabir enters the work area. Kunal queations-"is
Sabir-"ya, finally it is over now".
Kunal-"o god,,,thank you….there are very few people to whom you
look and say I AM PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN." Divya says-"you must be
talking about NSG commandos". Kunal answers-"who else? What do
you think ….i am talking about,,,the PM, those ministers,
beaurocrates or us the most important
people…huh…".divya-"chill,,,now". On news channels the the
opposition leaders start the blame game. They start to blame the
present government for the attacks. Actuaaly, they were right but
is it the right time? Kunal in disgust says-"huh! The rascals
were just killed that some more joined them". Divya-" hey kunal".
Kunal says-"what". Divya-"they are gentlemen
After 6 hours PM again reaches for a
metting with sabir. The meeting is held in the con ferencearea.
PM- I want to discuss some very important things with you
sabir!....alone". sabir looks at kunal who may any time kill the
PM on his orders and says-"whatever you want to say, you have to
say here only, sorsy sir.". PM finally says after 2 minutes of
silence-"sabir, our government is in pressure, you know we have
given orders to chanfe the home minister" sabir replie-"so what,
what is the relation of NSA wih this". PM -" I am here to make a
requet to you". Sabir-"wat kind of request?" PM replies-"take the
whole blame on your shoulders and and bail the government out of
it". Kunal intereres in the talks-" what the hell, we told you
about that some danger is round the cornor and you did not react
you want to transfer the blame on our shoulders". PM-"its not
only fault on our behalf but yous also, you said that crickets
will be attacked but Mumbai was attacked". Kunal-" they be fooled
us, they wanted to remove the forces from gateway of India so as
to enter into mumbai easily and that's the reason they sent the
video". PM-"whatever the reason may be, I want you to take the
blame….i want and answer….yes or no?. kunal-" NO,,,a big no".
sabir says now-" yes, we will take the blame sir, no problems,
you don't take tension". PM replies- " thank you sabir, I
appreciate this, I hope you come to delhi next morning and attend
the press conference with the new home minister". Sabir-"all
right sir". PM leaves leaving kunal and divya
Kunal-" what the fuck, why the heck did you
said yes". Sabir says-" I am your boss kunal, talk with respect".
Divya defends-" what are you saying sir, where is our fault".
Sabir replies after looking @ divya-"that's the worst part, no
one's is eady to take the blame". Sabir picks up his bag and
blazer and exits the room.
30th November 2008
"Mr sabir Mehta, do you take the blame for
the attacks" media questions sabir. Sabir replies-"yes, I do".
Another question is put up against sabir-"what do you think is
the job of NSA then, what were you people doing before
this".sabir replies-"actually, the blame should not go to NSA, I
said that I take the blame not NSA". A media person asks-"we
don't understand?" sabir replies-" hhmnm….i take the blame not
because NSA was responsible, I take the blame not because THE PM
of this country told me to do but I take the blame because I am
an Indian and this Mumbai attack is the responsibility of each
Indian, each of us sitting here are responsible for these attacks
and also those who are watching this conference in their homes.
Not only this attack but each bomb blasts that took place in
India". Media questions-"how can you say that". Sabir replies-"in
my neighbour a woman daily comes and dumps the waste their only ,
watching her two more women come and dumps the waste and they are
followed by three more". Media-"what are you saying, what is the
link between this with the attacks or blasts". Sabir-" I did not
completedmy sentence……….when so many people start to dump their
waste at that place,i.e, at the gate the of the children;s park
then it becomes very normal for everyone, but one day two men in
wearing helmet come on bike and they too dump the waste in a
plastic bag. You will ask whats the difference. The difference is
that when these two men leave after dumping their waste there
then after 5 minutes a bomb blast takes place there only.
Actually, the plastic bag which they dumped contained a bomb. The
son of the woman who first came to dump her waste at the park
gate lost her son who was playing in park at that time. She now
goes with 200 people to the INDIA GATE and ligts
She blames government for this and
government blames NSA, NSA blames Pakistan, opposition party
blames ruling party, ruling party blames the police
administration, police administration blames their top officers.
Tell me who do you blame? If u ask me then I tell u that I blame
that woman who dumped the waste at a public place. I must be
sounding stupid but tell me what can government can do. This
nation is very unlucky……. not because we are a prey to the
terrorist aatcks but because no one in this country is ready to
take the blame, because the PM of the country comes to NSA and
begs to the NSA chief that "plz take blame on your shoulder", I
take the blame because I want to set an example for others that
taking blame is the art of brave and we at NSA are brave people.
i know that nothing is going to happen from now as we are Indians
and we have this beautiful habit of forgetting
No one was able to say a word in the press
conference. Every one was silent but sabir continued -"my friend
kunal feels that this politicians are rascals but I feel that not
only they but also we - the people fall in the same category .
the only difference between those rascals who came to India to
kill few of our people and us is that they came and we knew that
these are rascals but there are many rascals hidden in some very
famous gentlemen of this country. If you want to kill terrorism
then do not kill these terrorists but kill these GENTLEMEN
RASCALS, at last again I say that I take the blame for the
attacks but I will not resign from my post as next time we get
any information about any attack, we will act on our
own"……..sabir looks at the home minister who is sitting beside
him and says his last words to medis in the mike "thank
