Heartening ...

... the story of all passengers on a plane that crashed into an icy cold New York river being rescued:

I hope the Indian security and defence establishment take note.
For our significant taxes we get a navy guilty of inaction when informed of a threat, navy commandos who spent an entire night in a hotel being attacked by terrorists without seemingly doing anything (and falsely claiming to have killed two terrorists - I only hope they didn't kill innocents), an army that seemed reluctant to enter the hotel and supposedly elite commandos who after arriving at the scene late, compounded the delay by refusing to enter the hotel till protocol was appropriately followed by the State Government and they then took a long time to eliminate very few terrorists.
I also notice the significant amount of talk we heard then about people getting more engaged with the Government and improving things is significantly less loud now ...
