9/11- In memoriam

The tragic events of this day 7 years ago in the USA marked the end of the laissez passe (let it pass) phase in modern history. Since then safety and security are the buzzwords in all aspects of life - shopping, travelling, jobs, cellphone conversations and even Internet browsing. Wars are being waged on terror and just like the rest of the world, India has had to face up to the reality. That of fighting an organized and unseen enemy. A lot of individual freedoms have been compromised in its wake. Whether these are justified or not is a debate that will continue. But for all of us who lived through that day watching in horror at the TV screens, no single event has changed our lives in the last 10 years as the 9/11 attacks have.
