number of people evacuated in mumbai...10,000
Cases of shooting and violence in new orleans...Countless
Cases of shooting and violence in mumbai.. NONE
Time taken for US army to reach new orleans... 48hours
Time taken for Indian army and navy to reach mumbai...12hours
Status 48hours later...New Orleans is still waiting for relief, army and electricity
Status 48hours later... Mumbai is back on its feet and is business is as usual

oopss...did i get the last fact wrong???
am sure if it was a hurracaine which brought the flood in Mumbai, India will still manage it better than US ...the news which i hear from US news agency shows how pathetic is the situation there ...as a mighty ecnomic and militry power of the world..US could have done much much better ..too bad that the disaster management/homeland security people took everything very lightly...
Dear Dubya ..u need to do moreeee.......
Well Done Mumbaikars
