The Much Awaited Pet Talk

I was awaiting for the goof up and the PM delivers it himself. If I am not mistaken, yesterday out honourable railway minister promised presence at the scene. Maybe not sure how to handle the tirade of questions, he decided to stay low. Much of the bureaucracy seems to be in shelter.

I have to admit that our honourable PM Dr.Manmohan Singh is one of the few politicians for whome I have utmost respect for. He was among the elite few who took daring steps paving way for the economic growth we see today. But ever since INC came to power, he seems to be nothing more than a puppet (proly a good choice by the party to appease the situation then).

His talk was like the campaign talks during election season. I am not sure if he even composed what he read out, if it was even his voice. But here are my comments on the highlights of the talk.

"war against terror will be won and no one can make India kneel" - Please Sir ^:)^!!! No country will. IMHO it is never possible that evil will be gone, though I appreciate the spirit and enthusiasm.

"These elements have not yet understood that we Indians can stand united. That we will stand united. They have not yet understood that we will never let them win" - They know we are united which is why they are doing this. Please spare the cliched phrases, Sir. I presume the populous is quite attuned to such happenings without warning. People are in dire need of answers than a mere morale boost. The more time you take, the more fabricated it would appear.

"this is living proof of our contempt for terrorism" - its contempt for more than just terrorism.

"good work" done by the police, the security forces, railway staff, firemen, medical personnel - :-o the 1st two were blatantly ineffective over this incident, allegedly not ariving at the scene until an hour past the happenings. Kindly express your gratitude to the people who helped each other until the services took charge.

For me to say all this sitting in a chair here is so easy, in contrast to the responsibility that our *leaders* uphold. All that I hope for is that they truly in action uphold the nation that just through pet talks.

Hoards of people are railing our intelligence. Remember that the top intelligence in the world have gone amiss. They are humans too, and a liable to err. This does not justify the failure of the system in anyway. But to find scapegoats at this hour is really disgraceful. Time and again I see this Indian mentality to blame someone and not take responsibility and do a root cause analysis to fix the leak.

And then these insipid suggestions to set up metal / bomb detectors or scanners for our transportation system, gooosh #-o. Have they ever considered the cost of doing that? More that which, have they even had the slightest thought of viability considering the number of people who commute. Seriously such insipid arguments to fill the new hour is so bland and shows your unprofessionalism.

Lets wait and watch the postmortem of the incident :-w.

why do ppl always come up with solutions that never win against terrorism anyways, only when something major happens? Also, what really needs to happen is not prevent bombs from being planted but address the real issue which is INSIDE EACH ONE OF US.

An education system that teaches one's own's BELIEFS is not a matter of LIFE and DEATH.

only when you know your lock ain't good enough, you go for a more sophisticated one right?

Human mind is very finiky nut. Besides India cannot make sure there ain't no terrorism anywhere.

In fact we could take charge had it been a result of local communal dispute. You can't go n change the minds of people elsewhere.

Some how I believe good n evil will prevail ... trying eternally to reach equilibrium

guess kali yugam is when evil is more prevalent than goodness

I Agree samy. There is a huge difference in the way America and Britain handled terrorism. Instead of giving speeches or mud slinging, the officials should be putting all resources to find out who is responsible.

Controlling and eradicating terrorism is not going to be done in a day. The corruption and legal loop holes need to be plugged. Imagine if there was minimal corruption and every rule is followed, how many of the incidents we could have prevented. I believe we have the infrastructure but our politicians and officials dont have the drive. Its not a one man show, its a team. And this team has to be dedicated to serving the country at any cost.

Somehow I feel corruption is playing a huge part in promoting terrorism. And this has to stop.

@madhu: I concur with much of what u'v said ... but corruption is inherrent to democracy ... unfortunately it has perclorated into out system too deep unlike others

either politicians are really incapable of hunting down such incidents, or they have enuf stakes if such things happen (the attackers get apprehended) ... maybe they think a bit of unrest is required for the govt to emphasize it presence and uphold its power

@keshi: everytime anew leak is found, we fix that ... thatz what I meant by lock n key analogy ... bad one

being in our position it ez to say the govt is doing nothing ... these terrorists are being supported by organizations ... maybe some political hurdles prevent em from doing certain things, which the public just cannot handle ... but this ain't a justification for their lax
