I was sitting in office watching the entertaining Manchester United vs. Liverpool EPL game and the shit hit the fan again. Four blasts so far across the capital, no seeming order to the blasts other than being in crowded areas. I thought the media was a bit callous in their response and the pictures from the scene were not vetted and some channels were a bit too gory. Then again, when should you stop reporting and help? Thankfully, everybody I know seems to be fine, but it appears that ten people have died so far.
Of course, our Home Minister will hum and haw all over again and the gang of SIMI-lovers will be very quiet all of a sudden. I found it particularly entertaining that one channel went after the Police Commissioner asking him why the blasts weren't stopped. Thesad thing remains that in this mass of humanity that you can't prevent low-intensity blasts like this, though with ten dead, the blasts can't have been low intensity?
Again, I'm sure the idiots behind the blasts wanted to target the Metro but I would believe that the great work by the CISF prevented that. And it is infuriating when politicians like Mayawati throw tantrums when her people are frisked by CISF at airports.
You can't get scared at this, you have to suck it in and carry on. I was scared on July 11 though. This is India, shit like this will continue to happen until and unless our politicians grow balls. I hope all you guys sitting in Delhi are fine. God bless!
