Bips closely witnessed 26/11 attacks
It’s been a month that serial attack hit Mumbai. Till yesterday, Bipasha Basu preferred to maintain silent about the fact that she was also one among those victims who was severely moved by the Mumbai attack as she has witnessed the trauma from very near.
Bipasha was returning from Film City on 26/11 when she was caught in one of the areas near where the terrorists had struck, "It happened at Vile Parle as I crossed the area. There was mayhem on the road as my staff and I sat huddled in our car wondering what to do next. Should we go forward? Or go back? I told my driver to drive in the middle of the road as fast as possible."
Though like everyone Bips also started to move on with life but it was hard on her part to forget what she and the entire Mumbai went through, "What happened to Mumbai is a shame for the entire country. I went out socially for the first time this week. Life must go on. The important thing is not to forget the lessons that we’ve learnt from 26/11.
"Now I feel far less defeated and far more optimistic about the future than I did the first few days after Mumbai was attacked. Mumbai won’t forget. We have zero security in the country. Otherwise how could there be continuous blasts all over the city for so many hours? And if the detonated RDX had not been discovered in time, it could have been worse."
