Who said,only major cities like Mumbai,Delhi are on terror radar?? See now Pune, the so-called cultural and educational capital of Maharashtra,an IT hub too got the place in the list.The new aspect of terror in India seems to be that now small cities and towns will be on the target. The only motto is to spread panic amongst common man.
The German bakery blast news made my hair stand on end.Till date i was happy and carefree to be part of Pune city,which was off terror radar. No one would have imagined in their remotest dream about blast in a place like this..which is mostly frequented by young ppl and foreigners. I Had a word with many frenz, colleagues,who were in the vicinity when the blast did occur, some of them had a near miss..But all were not that lucky..
Last 2 days people are talking/debating about this incident and how insecure life has become. I think this is what happens everytime,it has become routine, for initial few days we are panicked,shattered and in stress..after some time we get used to all this and start living normally till the next time it strikes again..Rather than blaming Government, Security agencies,why can’t we,the common people too share some responsibility being more vigilant,alert?
I agree,this time the situation was much better than 26/11, police, ambulance, and other help reached quickly at the place..however,if the waiter who tried opening bag have alerted people about abandoned bag,the tragedy could have been averted,or the place could have been vacated resulting in minimal loss.But these are again IFs and Buts..what we need is the awareness !! And that is what we need to spread everywhere..Just Aman ki Aasha is not gonna help us,what will help is Vigilance,and Awareness…
My heart goes to all the unfortunate victims n their families, their loss is irretrievable..
