Trident and other non triumphs

They briefed us , the media on their reopening yesterday.LA times and its cousins wanted to know
if the hotel management was aware of the threat,if such an attack can be prevented at all.
The first question - evaded , the second answered with a no.

Reporters from some TV channels did walkabouts in the lobby retracing the footsteps of the attackers and their moves.

We had a large lunch.I went back to office and wondered if I should mention something about the other poorer places which reopened the day after the attacks.I wondered if I should say that Pakistani nationals can't check in. I did only one of these.

Then I filed a story.I almost died trying to squeeze into the train where I had as much space to stand as the space I occupy existing on earth.

I wondered if I should eat pani puri near the station.I didn't .Then I came home.
