it still blows

Standard

it has been a year and a day since bombay fell victim to 7 blasts in 11 minutes, wounding over one thousand people; bringing the city to a standstill. it took less than 6 hours for the city to get moving again, with people using the same lines that were victim to explosions.

it has been a year and a day and less than 200 of them have received any kind of compensation, other than that initial helping hand from other people.

it has been a year and a day and seven accused men were arrested. they also “apparently” confessed; which they later retracted.

it has been a year and a day and the pakistan ISI has only been said to be strongly suspected of “having a hand” in such an obvious terrorist act. as far as i have found, no other action has been taken against pakistan or the isi. india apparently remains the lone accuser – no other country seems to even be bothered.

it has been a year and a day and bombay is back to its old self. people today barely remember there were blasts. and even if they do, so what ?

terror is a part of their daily life.

Incidentally the Wikipedia has no less than 3 entries for Bombay blasts. Go figure.

One thought on “it still blows

  1. A sad state of affairs really.
    At the end of the day terrorism has never achieved anything and won’t so in India as well. But inaction is as good as promoting it!
