Terror strikes: a lesson to learn

Enough is enough; terrorists have killed more than a thousand people since the UPA government came to power in 2004. Despite repeated terror strikes in almost all the major cities of the country, the government does have an answer to deal with terrorists. The innocent lives lost and those who are injured due to terror strikes don’t have any meaning to our politicians. Every terror strike has become an opportunity for our political netas to engage in a blame-game rather than solving the problem of terrorism. In fact, it has already become the game of the politicians where they can score maximum votes. Where the government of India has gone? Is it because the government has spent more time giving lip services? Or is it because the government has to balance its vote bank politics with terrorists? Sure, at this point of time, the people all over the country are not at all interested to know who is sacked from the Cabinet minister or who has become the new home minister. The country needs to hear what actual steps have been taken to tackle the terrorism. The political netas should apologize for failing to protect the lives of the common people. The country needs safety and security, not corrupt and inefficient government. In the Bible it is written, “When the David’s soldier saw Goliath, they all said, he is too big we can kill him. But David said, he is so big I can’t miss him”.

Continuing violence against infants, girls and women are being reported on a daily basis makes me feel that India is suffering from female-hatred mania. In the last couple of months cases of rapes and assault have made it to the headlines with alarming frequency. In another shameful incidence, under the Meera Road police, Mumbai, on March 18, a father was arrested for allegedly raping his two daughters on the advice of a ‘tantrik' in an attempt to become rich for ten years. Shocking enough is the fact that mother was also a part of the crime. He first raped his elder daughter, now 23-year when she was just ten years old and continued for ten years. According to the sources, father was...
Their face is their fortune. Lipsticks and powder are their regular items. Their ill-fitted blouses and colourful saris make them awesomely beautiful as they walk the streets for their livelihood. It’s estimated, India has 1.2 million eunuchs (transgenders). Yet, even after sixty years of India’s independence, no official data has ever been made to estimate the actual existence of eunuchs so far. Of this ninety-nine percent of eunuchs are either illiterate or semi-literate, having no source of income, except begging. Nearly 90% of Indian eunuchs live in poverty in grief condition. Their survival is through begging, entertaining in marriages/parties, blessing newly born child,...
He would have saved many lives. He would certainly have given smiles to the sufferings. But it’s very unfortunate, on Sunday evening; Amann Kuchroo, 19 a first year medical students in Dr. Rajendra Prasad Medical College, Tanda, Himachal Pradesh was allegedly ragged to death by four seniors students. It’s deeply inconsolable to the Amann’s family that they lost their only son in such an inhuman manner. In the west it’s the frequent campus shoot-outs, whereas in India, it’s certainly the ceremonial and criminal raggings in academic institutions that turn students’ lives into nightmare. Though ragging has been strictly banned in some colleges and...
714 MILLION Voters will decide the fate of the formation of the next govt. Will loud election campaigns in the streets be a history? Surprisingly, the net-bug has bitten several politicians in the country. Campaigning for the forthcoming parliamentary polls, this time, is not just confined to streets, hoardings and loudspeakers. Quite a handful of politicians switching over to new media such as e-mail, webcasts, SMS, MMS, blogs, social networking sites to woo the largest possible voters, especially the younger lot in a quickest manner. In India more than 45 million people have access to Internet and of this 57 percent are aged between 18 to 35 years. For, NDA’s Prime Ministerial...
After series of terror strikes, which claimed more than 150 lives last year, the mysterious killing of at least seven people the last week of February has engulfed Guwahati city in fear and anxiety. The people who are in panic suspect it to be a serial killer. The target of the serial killer is so far the homeless pavement dwellers, beggars and daily labourers. The first incident of such type of killing was reported in the first week of January when a labourer was found dead in Fancy Bazaar in Guwahati. The series of killing indicates that all the victims have been attacked the same way and all of them were pavement dwellers and beggars. In all these attacks the modus operandi has been the...
It’s a matter of shame for the whole nation, the New York based antiquarian would be auctioning Gandhi’s belongings– a watch, a pair of sandals, a plate, bowl and a pair of glasses. It’s too precious for India too loose its national property. The debate that has been going on since the last few weeks has come to an end. According to reports, the government earlier thought it would be unethical affairs to partake in the auction of Mahatma Gandhi’s belongings, as it will encourage more people to come with such proposals in the future. To avoid this, the government made an appeal to the public to buy Gandhi’s belongings at the auction and hand it over to...
Analytically, it is useful to look at Tuesday’s murderous terror attack on Sri Lankan cricketers near the Gaddafi Cricket Stadium in Lahore in broad ways. First, the players were attacked attack because, the jihadi elements in Pakistan seem to have close proximity with the Sri Lankan LTTLE, who are now fighting a loosing battle against the paramilitary forces. Of late, it’s known that large arms and ammunitions of Sri Lankan Army come from Pakistan. Sympathetically, the terrorists have taken this opportunity to put full stop in Pakistan’ foreign relations with the Sri Lanka government. Second, the terrorist target of a visiting cricket team was basically intended to...
It sounds stupid.It’s usually believed that teachers cannot be killer. It’s a fact, of course, requires no explanation. They are expected to be the architect of students’ fortune. Yet, it’s arguable that there is an overall increase in the frequency of cases teachers turning aggressive against own students. Of late, a physical training teacher of a private school in Amritsar mercilessly beat up a class nine student Amandeep fracturing his arm, for not wearing his turban to school. Worst still, the recent gruesome acts of violence against school children; a 35-year-old school teacher of a private in Ghaziabad murdered a class 7 student by slitting his throat. It...
As the nation is drawing closer to Lok Sabha polls, the BJP’s Prime Ministerial squad Mr. L.K. Advani, all of a sudden has become a tech-savvy. He is a virtual man at the moment. He is seen everywhere. He is in the newspaper, in the television, in the web and above all he is in the field, it seems as if the messiah has come for the common people. The man who is widely known for a different reason in the past, has he really become changed man? Or is it an Obama effect that is haunting him? Or has he learnt anything form Narendra Modi who did the same? It’s really amazing, a smiling face with a message “welcome to the website of Shri L.K. Advani”. If you happen to...
