Bombay is rocking in the literal sense

Today and yesterday what happened in mumbai was really shocking.People died in huge numbers and injured were even more.Its just a bit to hard to grasp the fact that how one can possibly come from the coast with loads of ammunition and the coast guard doing nothing.After that they passed by the india gate where there had been bomb blasts a decade back and certainly there should have been security.This was one thing.second they come in a vehicle and open fire on the people and get into the best hotel which keeps even the VVIPs without much of a problem and continue killing more and more people.How vulnerable our country is?
As the shooting still goes on in mumbai it seems disastrous that such a thing happened.Every time anything such happens the army is called out inspite of the fact that they are not trained to do such things.It s the job of the police in which ,surely they fail miserably.The most dangerous job is done by the NSG.The men in black do have a great deal of courage.
First the government doesn't care to give the armymen their dues and then they seek help from them every time.This is certainly not justified and fair of them to do.

Tennis is a sport played between two players (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). Each player uses a strung racquet to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt (most of the time Optic Yellow,but can be any color or even two-tone) over a net into the opponent's court.
The modern game of tennis originated in the United Kingdom in the late 19th century as "lawn tennis" and had heavy connections to the ancient game of real tennis. After its creation, tennis spread throughout the upper-class English-speaking population before spreading around the world. Tennis is an Olympic sport and is played at all levels of society at all ages. The sport can be played by anyone who can hold a racket, including people in wheelchairs. In the United States, there is a collegiate circuit organized by the National Collegiate Athletics Association.
Except for the adoption of the tiebreaker in the 1970s, the rules of tennis have changed very little since the 1890s. A recent addition to professional tennis has been the adoption of "instant replay" technology coupled with a point challenge system, which allows a player to challenge the official call of a point.
Along with its millions of players, millions of people worldwide follow tennis as a spectator sport, especially the four Grand Slam tournaments (sometimes referred to as the "majors"): the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open.
