    • She is beautiful, but that isn't nearly her most important feature. She gave her life, she is courageous, she is a hero.

    • For those wondering, terrorist and hijackers would ask for your passport to see where you’re from; if they’re targeting (example) the US, them finding a US passport might put you in deep trouble.

    • I don't care if this comes off as racist to shitbrained liberals on this platform but I've never known an Indian person that wouldn't literally sacrifice their life for someone they didn't know. Some of the most kind, caring people I know or have known in this world are Indian.

    • This is true, and a sad story. She was 22 at the time, but her birthday was only 2 days away. She was awarded the Ashok Chakra and several other awards for her actions. You can learn more about her life by reading "The Neerja I Knew" and "The Smile of Courage", written by her brother Aneesh Bhanot.

    • This was an Anti Indian movement that was fond and in awe of America, the victims were mainly Indians and Italians. The attack was crazy and her story of her life was crazy too, she wasn’t even 24 when she died. She was a model who got divorced by her husband who didn’t like her career.
