Mumbai, India—The toll for deaths and injuries include too many cops and members of the military. Days after the siege ends we will be able to learn the numbers. They suffered while protecting Americans and others from suicide gunmen on a murder and kidnapping orgy.
I always take a little time on my India vacations to talk to those coppers I run into along the way. Most of them speak some English. They are some classy guys for sure. I’ve been fortunate to have never seen them deal with violence but have observed them in action with highway accidents, and some training exercises. India is a peaceful country.
Most of the local cops aren’t all that well regarded like some of the elite military units but the great personal sacrifices in Mumbai speak for themselves. These guys are heroes. For the dead I mourn and for the injured I wish them all a speedy recovery.
As for India, It’s still a great place to visit with so much to see and do. Don’t let this event stop you form from the incredible and beautiful Indian experience.
