Blast to Normalcy

14 July, 2006

The past two days have been filled with the stories of the brave and the dead people in Bombay. The front page of all the daily newspapers, and television’s prime time coverage has been completely hijacked by this incident of terrorism. The men of steel with heart so strong ruled many comments, articles and posts. “Though terrorism strikes the core of the city, still gets up next morning and resumes all work.” Normalcy has been attained. It is a very commendable act of courage indeed. But I find that there is something very eerie and ghastly about this whole attitude of the ‘MUMbaikars.’

Yes the citizens rushed out to help those victimized; yes the city did not give the terrorists the pleasure of breaking down the system but why aren’t they fighting back?
And what is this talk about getting back to normalcy? Can anyone in this world be peaceful with a bunch of fanatics roaming about the place, with the aim to kill?
Well in my opinion, the mumbai log have become like the citizens of War laden areas around the world where bombs are like the passing train every hour. Only unpredictable but accepted that it is an occurrence. They have attained a placid temperament about this. Just another day in the lives of the mumbaikars. I see in every person’s eyes a dead calm not before a storm but of despair.

Well I don’t believe in the peace talks between countries. What is there to debate about terrorists and terrorism? Some decision and action has to be taken before BOMBay becomes ‘used’ to this lifestyle. There can never be normalcy in terror. It is crouching in a corner waiting in agony for the next one to strike.

disagree.terror's striking, n we strike back.they strike again.terror knows a lotta corners to hide tsu.the only way we can fight it is by not letting it affect us.take the thump outta the blast.
if a city can get back to its feet in a day's time after the blast, then well it kinda spoils the effect doesnt it?
nothing is normal in this world anymore.
n we've learned to live past anything...n i mean anything
