Bombs bombs everywhere…

with 16 comments








That is the refrain these days with blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad, and bombs having been recovered from Chennai, Tiruchirapally and 18 bombs in Surat. An unattended bag on the road or on the train sparks off a completely understandable panic these days. And a blast in a hospital? That’s as low as a man can get. It’s a scary world that we live in. I feel as if I must say good bye every time after every meeting with anyone – don’t know if I’l see them next. Armed guards outside the Court is one thing, but armed guards within the court premises only seem to make the threat of a potential bomb blast so much more real.
Watching the blast sites, victims and their families is heart wrenching, and I can’t help but being thankful to God that till now none of my near and dear ones have been affected by a blast. I know that sounds selfish. These days on the roads and all other public places, you find people keeping a sharp lookout for unclaimed suspicious objects. I read about one incident where a suspicious object turned out to be an innocent lunch box, while at another place people who found an unclaimed object showing great presence of mind covered it with sandbags to minimize the effect of any potential blast. It’s definitely a sad statement of our current affairs when an innocent lunch box is taken as a bomb and people finding an unclaimed object promptly cover it up with sandbags. It is also a statement of how we, as citizens have become active and vigilant. Yes the fact that we as citizens have become more vigilant is certainly a pro, but I really hope that this does not become a regular affair.
And our mahan politicians like Sushma Swaraj are really not doing much to help allay the fears of the public by issuing statements to the effect that the bombs are a huge cover-up o the ‘cash for Votes’ scandal. I am ashamed of her as a human being. Can she really think that people are that low. Of course, the guilty would try to take away the media attention from the ‘Cash for Votes’ scandal, but at the cost of so many lives. I sincerely doubt it, unless of course the person is an unfeeling bastard with no heart who would rather have a few blasts to draw attention away from him, like we saw Amrish Puri orchestrating in that Anil Kapoor movie where he becomes the Chief Minister for a day (Forget the name). But that was a movie.
Whosoever these nameless faceless bombers are, I want to tell them one thing. We the people of India shall not be cowed down to submission by you cowards. You are a coward because you hide behind your mask of anonymity and then attack. That is not smart warfare. That is a coward’s warfare. And the day that your mask is lifted and the people of India see your face, you can run and but you will have no place to hide. You won’t be able to escape our wrath, and then you will be sorry. We shall take you to every victim’s family and home to show you what you have done. Then you will be sorry, you will cry and beg for forgiveness, but there is no forgiving as heinous an act as this. Know this now you faceless cowards, we are down but we are not out. And we shall not get out by faceless nameless cowardly bastards as you.

  1. I’m so sorry you have to feel this way – I know what you mean about always telling people you love them. After 9/11 we all started taking how fragile life is far more seriously!

    I wish the world were a kinder place.

  3. A very thoughtful post!everytime such a terror attack happens i think of only one thing….tht wht is it tht these ppl want?Why do they hav to kill innocent ppl?wht hav they done to them? But at the end the only answer i get is tht these ppl never hav an agenda….there only motive in life seems to b spreading chaos and scaring ppl around them! Seriously sickening.

  4. Dianne: I wish the world were a kinder place too. These blasts just make you wonder if the person sitting next to you in the bus is one of those faceless nameless cowards.

  5. Keshi: I completely agree.I think this terror would only stop when we have a nuclear war and the whole world just comes to an end.

  6. Ria: These faceless nameless cowards are like school bullies whose only motive is to terrorize and scare ppl. They have no agenda. I refuse to believe that this is a religious war. No religion would ever tell you to hide bombs in public places and set them to off on timers, thereby destroying innumerable lives.

  7. sometimes i wonder what drives them to take these extreme steps? whether they actually have a cause as they claim to or this is just act of blind insanity? we’ll never get the answers.

  9. Priyanka: I would say this is an act of blind insanity. I refuse to believe any such cause could otherwise be justified

  10. Keshi: It is a sad statement of the state of affairs of our world today. Revenge for what? That’s what i wonder. If these people really feel the need to right a wrong done to them, they should come out and speak up, not hide. They will never get what they want

  12. Solitaire: I wonder too. of course we do know how Sushma Swaraj feels, but thankfully she has not been supported by her party or the senior leaders.

  13. Beautifully written. I think one of the most evil things about terrorism – which you rightly name cowardice – is that it keeps people living in a state of constant fear… and that often gives others (like President Bush in this country) the ability to manipulate and prey on people’s fears to commit equally vile crimes.

    I don’t know what the answer is to a world where people’s wounds are so deep that they are willing to blow themselves and others up. I think often those who do these kinds of bombings are victims themselves, preyed on by cynical people who take advantage of youth and discontent….

    In any case, I’m sorry that you and your country are living with this kind of fear and that so many innocent lives have already been spent. It makes my heart sad.

  15. Raven: I know what you mean. There is obviously a link somewhere b/w the goons and the politicians, I agree, but yet I wonder whether our leaders can stoop so low that they link up with these terror outfits and get them to plant bombs and take the lives of numerous innocent ppl
