Serial Blasts in Assam!!

Another series of blasts – now in Assam! Another part of India – another set of people died – another set of people got injured – all Indians! After blasts in Jaipur, Bangalore, Delhi and Agartala, today it was Guwahati, the gateway of the North East and a few other parts of Assam where there were serial blasts. Scores of people died and more than a hundred got injured.

  • Where are we heading to?
  • Will this ever stop?
  • Is the Government responsible?
  • What should we do?
  • What should the Government do?

These (and many more) are the questions in our minds now. Who is going to answer? It does not matter anymore if the responsible group is Huji, ISI, ULFA or ATTF or some other – what matters now is the condition of the country.

The Economy is down, along with the Global economy. The markets are falling like castles of cards. Companies from various sectors are firing people and people in masses are going jobless. There is no surety of. Prices of food, power, oil, LPG and everything else is going up. No one is having any answers to why all these are happening.

I’m not against any political party or any other organization; but I have a few questions to ask and I am searching for the ears who can hear me. I think we should stop fighting on ‘Gay Rights’ and shoot anti social leaders on the spot (without wasting any more time) and take out our precious time to think about national security and other issues. Who will take the responsibility? Who will answer my questions? If not the Government, whom do we go and ask these questions?

I am no leader – cannot take a call on anything that is happening around me. I have to think 1000 times before I could join a highly financed course in Florida, USA. I have to stay thousands of miles away from my home to earn money. I have to look up to my manager for my salary – for a better appraisal. I have to leave all my near and dear ones to marry the woman I love. I have to take permission from my wife before going out for a movie with my friends. I have to lie to the world, to smoke a cigarette. I do not have a say anywhere. All I want is a handsome salary at the end of the month so that I can run my family. I am a common man. However, I have a voice – want to shout it out to those ears that matter. This is high time we raise each of our individual voices and scream together – unless we want to see India go down on the slide on whose top we are standing now. Where would we go? Where do I go from here? What is safe for me – Bangalore or Jail?
