Reel vs. Real

I watched the recent movie ‘A Wednesday’, on how a ‘common man’ takes up the onus of cleansing his society of crime and terror. It’s a gripping tale, and one worth watching. Yes, do go watch if you can.

But, in context of today’s Mumbai[1,2], and my post yesterday where I talked about how I am amazed by Mumbai’s resilience, a line from the movie struck me very strongly:

We are not resilient by choice; we are resilient by force.
