Where is India headed??
Still when the Mumbai terror war is fresh in the minds, and the city is still in state of reconciliation, there it is - Bomb Blasts in a train in Assam
From the south west state to the north east, the terror engulfs the whole nation.
This is what the Indian Express has to say about the assam blasts:
Three persons, including a child, were killed and 30 others injured on Tuesday in a bomb blast suspected to have been triggered by a militant outfit in a passenger train in central Assam's Karbi Anglong district.
Police sources said the bomb, kept inside coach number 8209 of 901 Lumding-Tinsukia passenger train, exploded around 8 am as it entered Diphu railway station.
They said they suspected militants belonging to Karbi Longri National Liberation Front (KLNLF), which has given an indefinite call for economic blockade in the Karbi Anglong region in Assam from this morning to press their 10-point demand, to have planted the bomb.
However, no one has claimed responsibility yet.
But coordinated bomb blasts in Assam in October, which killed at least 77 people, were blamed on Islamist militants from neighbouring Bangladesh.
After 9/11, travel by air became unsafe, and trains the next option. stay safely in hotels, but then the Mumbai blasts don't allow you that. And now the trains..
is staying at home the only option?? Not exactly!! Not heard about Earthquakes, or maybe the criminal assualts and robbery and stuff?
So, the end conclusion - YOU ARE NOT SAFE ANYWHERE.
On a lighter note i would say the terrorists need some kind of co-ordination. Harm all places, leaving one, and then by law of human nature, the whole population would shift there. So is pakistan (nothing against the country, just needed an example) safe?? nah! Remember that blasts in the hotel, quite recently.
In all this turmoil, i guess my room no. 1053 in the IIML campus is the safest place, except for the assault by Himesh Reshamiya songs, and old flop hindi movies which my neighbours have to put up with.
