Follow Up!

Gaurav wrote a very touching poem which vividly describes the consequences of the recent blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad. It was really scary to know that we are facing terror right in the face. The next guy on his cycle, the bhajiwala with his tokri... and so on...

There were reports that live bombs were found in Surat! Those couple of days, this thought must have been present in peoples mind.... 'What Next'... security was tightened at sensitive areas... but the threat might lie within.. like Gaurav says in his blog, is it really possible to identify the threats before?

I had some questions then on! But then i was not sure of putting them online.... what with people using cryptic messages to organize terror attacks... cyber intelligence screening web to check for possible threats... and so on... This can really elucidate the paranoia that has been spread in people... in me... all because the enemy is invisible.... metaphorically / literally speaking!

The major question was:
Are these attacks in any way related to the IAEA deal? Some way of telling india 'Stay away from US'?
(This was fuelled by another brewing conspiracy theory of the link of the IAEA debate in the parliament and the severe power crisis in the state of maharasthra. I mean the governments are at the centre and . The crisis in the state was just before the debate.... and once the deal was passed... the crisis has simmered down and load shedding reduced in the state of maharashtra.... Just a hypothesis!)

But one must say, the attacks are likely to be internal... or they lacked some sort of vision because it was just before the SAARC summit and the meeting of officials from our neighbouring country and US. Our neighbours are seriously put under some pressure... again a hypothesis!

But still, the real WMD lies within the mind which can be fuelled by Revenge, Religion and Remorse... or maybe just a Reaction!

The invisible enemy!
