At the wake of terror in Mumbai, two important people of the country were in deep discussion on how the situation could have been handled and how easily it would've been to rescue the hostages then.
My friend V and I were discussing possibilities of her becoming an encounter specialist and saving those hostages. Here is the conversation:
V: My blood boils everytime i see terror attacks on my country. I was telling my mother that i want to join the RAF.
Me: What was her reaction?
V: What do you think? She laughed on my face.
Me: I would have too, had i been her. Why don't you think of something more feasible for you? Like sucking on your lolly pop?
V: Shut up. Am almost a year older than you.
Me: But you look like a 12 yr old.
V: That is an advantage. I have a plan all sketched out in my mind. A plan, had i been in RAF now, that would have worked against the situation.
Me: What plan?
V: I will dress up as a cabaret dancer and entertain the terrorists so that they're distracted then i'll shoot them all. *Makes gun noises*
Me: Child, if you look like a 12 yr old, they're gonna be disgusted. They may even say 'awwwwwww' instead of 'aaaaahhh'. They're not pedophiles you know.
V: Excuse me. Now i'm 20 and i look like 12. When i am 26 i'll look 18 right? I will look like a woman then
Me: You are right. So, if u are a cabaret dancer it means u'll have to dress scantily. You don't think they'll spot the gun?
V: Good point. I didn't think of that.
Me: Do one thing. Do cabaret dance and invite them one by one to your room. When they come, shoot.
V: Super plan! Cha i wish i could become a commando. I'll be the bravest. And when i'm killed in an encounter with a terrorist you'll see vidoes of my marching straight, looking all brave, in every news channel.
Me: Haha... Yeah. They will say "V took a bullet for the country".
V: Yeah. *dreams*
Me: By the way, why didn't you come to office today?
V: My mom told me she'll kill me if i step out of the house today.
Me: ROTFL! Hostage situation, indeed.....
