It’s the worst moment of my life as I have not seen such an act of terror in the past 64 years.
I see it as an attack on India, an attack on Mumbai. I see it as an attack to slow down our economy and to distract foreign investment directed into India. And thus it is an attack on India’s success story.
We were getting too much prominence in the international arena and some people don’t like to hear that.
I know that everything in the next 15 days is getting cancelled. Tourists will not come and hotels and airlines will get impacted.
Also cricket matches will get affected. Around 40,000 to 50,000 people watch matches and a lot of money gets circulated. But now all of this is going to get impacted.
Social events will get cancelled in November and December
Moreover business trips will get reduced and people will be scared each time they enter Oberoi and Taj Hotel.
As told to Sandeep Singh
