New Delhi, Nov 25 (IANS) "It was 8 p.m. and the vast expanse of the Arabian Sea looked calm. Heading towards my naval base, I had one fi­nal look at the area. Some pigeons fluttered past, a policeman whistled and a hawker packed his belongings for the day. The neon-lit surrounding would now illuminate some late-night lovebirds, looking for their private space in this insomniac city. Life looked picturesque and undisturbed. Who would have known that an hour from then, death would spread its dirty tentacles, choking life out of this picture? Who would have imagined that ten men from Pakistan would come sailing through the Arabian Sea in a small boat and would launch the most dastardly attack on the city? And hardly would have I imagined that few hours from now, I will be facing these ­fidayeen, inside the Taj, eye to eye, and my life would change forever," MARCOS commando Praveen Kumar Teotia writes in "My Encounter With Terrorists That Night" (Rupa).
