Will Life ever be the same again?

Fifty-seven killed on the platform of Victoria Terminus. Diners at a restaurant, gunning down everyone after finishing a meal. A police van highjacked and its occupants killed in full view of video cameras. Guests at five-star hotels being forced to barricade themselves in their rooms and survive on the contents of the room-bar. A taxi blowing up moments after jumping a traffic-light. Women and children taken hostage at a government hospital. Sniffer-dogs gunned down.

Every Mumbaikar knows the many ways in which he is vulnerable. Can we ever stop looking over out shoulders?

Will life ever be the same again?

Drabble (n) - an extremely short work exactly one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.
