Waiting for justice

Today is the third anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. And India, tired of waiting, wants answers.

“We are still waiting for Pakistan to act decisively to bring to justice the perpetrators of the mindless violence that was unleashed on Mumbai. We are still waiting,” External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said.

Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving captured terrorist was sentenced to death in May this year by a special court but the Supreme Court in October stayed the execution.

New Delhi is also trying to get the key conspirator behind the attack, Pakistani American David Colmen Headley extradited to India from the United States.

In the meantime, national hero Karambir Kang, the General Manager of the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai whose actions saved over a 1000 lives, has moved on with rebuilding his life while the Indian media navel gaze upon the nation's preparedness for another such attack and offer up the view from Pakistan.

Not having heard about Headley before, I wondered to myself what his name was after he converted. So that was a twist!

So what does "Aap to kaisa lag raha hai" mean? (from the "media navel gaze" article").

That should be Aap ko kaisa lag raha hai --> What/How are you feeling?

Yeah, it the equivalent of the usual inane questions that US news correspondents ask: "So how did make you feel?"
