Ensure safety instead of relying on people to tackle adversity
This refers to the editorial Too much to ask of people (Our Take, July 15). For too long now, Mumbaikars have been at the receiving end of 'hail thy resilience' responses after each terror strike. Returning to work immediately after a disaster shows a natural instinct for survival. It is outrageous to use it as a ploy to take people and their security for granted. Instead of attempting to justify its failures, the UPA must review its anti-terror policy.

Slipping through the gridlock
With reference to the editorial Keep an eye on the circuit (Our Take, July 16), the Natgrid has not yet been able to achieve the desired results. The intelligence and security agencies have failed to curb the menace of terrorism that has taken a heavy toll on the ordinary people of Mumbai. The Maharashtra government, in coordination with the Centre, must refurbish the intelligence agencies so that such incidents do not occur in future.

Stop peddling in panic
With reference to the report All Indian cities vulnerable: PC (July 15), it is deplorable that home minister P Chidambaram has issued such a statement in the aftermath of a terror attack. It is the home minister's job to ensure safety for the citizens, not spread panic and fear in a way that interferes with their daily life.
