India in Chaos

Even as I write tonight, more and more victims are being found around major cities and tourist attractions, as well as within the financial capital of Mumbai, India (formerly known as Bombay).  It seems that terrorism is, indeed, the new and never-ending battle we must now face.

To the citizens, friends, and families in the beautiful, exotic country of India, please know that the American people send their thoughts and sympathies to you in your time of grief.

    I hope you realize why – even though meant kindly – “exotic” is quite the wrong word…

  2. Dear Reader,
    First thank you for reading my blog. In regard to your comment, I confess that I do not understand your meaning, and if by accident I have offended I sincerely apologize. According to Webster’s Dictionary II New Riverside Dictionary Revised Version, the term “exotic” is an adjective meaning (1) of or from another part of the world, i.e. foreign. (2) intriguingly different. From the view of most Americans, India is, indeed, an exotic land filled with beautiful people, art and culture. It is obvious that the tragedy that has happened is horrific. We know, as we too have been through this blatant disregard for life. But…one has to believe that no matter how bad things are, how ugly the current scenes, how mournful the people, that life does return and, India, though she may be changed in someways forever, she will always be that beautiful, exotic land of which most of use can only dream or read about.
