Mumbai 2

CaptainB removes some of the opacity of Mumbai.


  1. Me thinks Captain B is overrated.

  2. Once again Michael Burleigh locates the point on the map with clinical accuracy, if only the so called experts wheeled out by the media were as well schooled. Long may you reign Captain B.

    Once more we turn our heads away and bow them in shame.
    Again we think will it ever end, is there no light at the end of this tunnel burrowed by religion and creed.
    Convincing myself in late teens that they were no different from us, the Nazis, gave me me hope, there but for the grace of God go I, but we are stronger and outnumber them.
    As I grow older my conviction grows ever harder to maintain.
    What if, at the end, our convictions are weak, they will dominate.
    What does that say of mankind, that after all, we are savages ?

  3. Burleigh is an interesting writer but he does perpetuate the "Clash Of Civilisations" bullshit. One gets the feeling that ilk actually want a showdown to happen.

  4. Obviously you haven't read his books then...

  5. Astounded I am, how can anyone criticize such an informed analysis, as Vernon suggests, read his books although some would prefer them burned
