Bombay blasts

I am sure most of you are already aware of the blasts that have shocked the nation and devastated Bombay.
I have my family and lot of friends in mumbai and was worried about them for most part of the evening/night. Thankfully , none of them seem to be directly affected by the explosions other than being inconvenienced by it.
Hope all your near and dear ones are safe and sound.

About 170 people have already passed away 'cos of this cowardly act and many more are injured.
We can pray for the souls of the unfortunate and wish for the speedy recovery of the hospitalised.

Hello from Canada,

Here is Canada we complain if we can't get a seat on a commuter subway train, but we rarely have times when our commuter trains are packed with people like sardines.

Now a days we in Canada finally get to learn about what it is like to live in highly populated countries because we have internet news and world television programs to teach us about what it is like to be in another land.

When I heard of the blast my mind raced to a memory on a travel program of folks jammed and busy trying to get home from work on the commuter train.

I could only imagine what it was like for those who experienced this horrible event. It is aweful that someone purposely chose a place they knew would be very crowded so they could inflict the most personal tragity possible.

They are not humans who choose such evil deeds. There are no sane people who would choose to destroy fellow human beings in this manner.

Let us see what the govt ends up doing ... right now , we have to make sure that people try to recover from the incident and can piece together their lives.

Bombay rail network must be carrying the highest number of commuters in the world daily ... and the precision with which is does it is amazing.
I have travelled by it a few times , and 'jam packed' gets a new meaning after you have travelled by it at the time when office close in the evening.
It makes an ideal target for a terrorist strike - minimum effort , maximum damage and highest probability of escape in the ensuing crowd and melle.
The location is chosen not just to spread damage , but if possible to trigger a communal riot similar to what happened to Bombay in 1993.
Fortunately , this latter goal has not succeeded.
