Letter from the Editor-In-Chief - Oh No, Not Again

December, 2008

The shock of the October bomb blasts at Guwahati is still fresh in the minds of the people of the region. Before this shock could even fade out of the minds of the people, we see yet another major terrorist attack at Mumbai, the financial capital of India.

Nearly two hundred lives were lost in the three day battle. What the incident indicates is that our policies, intelligence and alertness regarding terrorism has failed.
