Sughamano? (How are you in Malayalam) On Thursday, it was the first anniversary of one of the most brutal terrorist attacks on Mumbai. After reading what the Indian Bloggers and readers had to say, we hope peace and prosperity prevails and we make the world a better place to live. We are sure most of us would have been touched by the gesture of Major Unnikrishnan’s family by refusing the petrol pump and instead of it told the government to divert the funds to Military welfare trust.
