'To the last bullet' ...

'To the last bullet' is a book written by Vinita Kamte, wife of Ashok Kamte, IPS who was killed in the horrific 26/11 attacks in Mumbai in 2009. This book is a must read for all those who wish to know the rot in our system. It was plain disgusting to read how the police and the government are just so hell bent on covering up so many facts about the investigation. Even a post mortem report was denied to Vinita Kamte - just goes about to show how rotten the system is.

Her RTI reports also show details of the conversation the officers had with the control room on that fateful night, and you will be plain shocked to know about the laxity of the system. I would have revealed more here, but it will not do justice to the awesome job Vinita Kamte and her friends have done.

The book also talks about the various postings of Ashok Kamte, and how he dealt with situations. His stint as commisioner of Solapur was an excellent read, and given that I visited that town once, could visualize places where the action was.

Hats off to Ashok Kamte for his dedication in serving the country and hats off to Vinita Kamte for her awesome perseverance. Alas, the political system is so rotten that they have chosen to ignore these findings too.
