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).
