Even as Ajmal Kasab was saying that ten men who carried out 26/11 attacks in Mumbai were Pakistani terrorists, some politicians of the ruling establishment were calling it a ‘RSS Conspiracy’. It was clear to Vikrant that government would do nothing to take revenge for the death of his wife and daughter who died along with more than 150 others in those dastardly attacks. Forget about taking revenge, he won’t even get justice.
But Vikrant Maheshwari was not the government. He wasn’t tied down by diplomatic niceties. Can he himself extract his revenge from Pakistan? Who will help him? How will he evade the cops who’ve come to know of his plans?
Oh My Gods
'Bharat ki barbadi tak jung rahegi, jung rahegi!', 'Afzal hum sharminda hain, tere qatil ab tak zinda hain!' Can such slogans change someone's life forever? Can these slogans affect someone in such a manner that he picks up a weapon against his nation? Yes, they can. Picking up a weapon was the only choice I had. I couldn't help it at that time. It was destined to be so, I guess. I did what I had to. But is that the way it is supposed to end? Or does destiny have something more in store for me? Am I capable of achieving something else in life? Is there someone out there who can bring me back to the real world? Or is this world full of only such people who are out to use you for their own benefits?
