My family had a narrow escape at the Delhi Blasts

It was 6.30 pm I had just decided to shut down my laptop and read some books instead, I had also moved from my drawing room to bed room in order to lie down bit. Yet at the last min I thought let me still carry the laptop I would read some of the PDF files lying unread for so long, I won’t be online though. Just when I had looked at the screen to sign out of Gtalk and Twitter I found a tweet saying “blasts in Delhi, Karol Bagh”

From that time till the time they all took an auto and reached home I had a terrible time.

By ‘narrow’ I mean really really narrow, they were a few meters away from the blast site and were at the site where live bombs were found mins later. But today they escaped, what about tomorrow? And if not my family what about the families of those 20 that did lose their life and those 100s battling for in the hospital?

Yet another attack on us by the Islamic group. I am a secular person, I respect all religions but when I see a group of people doing blood shed in the name of their God I have a lot of questions to ask and to quote myself,

I would really need some answers to these questions without which it really gets difficult for a secularist to defend them when another counter-terrorism group attacks another bunch of innocent people as a natural reaction to terrorism.

  1. Gald to know your folks are ok, but at the same time, its a shame on thse happenings.

    I must say , everybody is a bundle of nerves, thanks to work and other related stress. incidents such as these make the common man all the more jittery.

    From now on, even an accidetal breaking of glass will send him scurring for shelter. The common man has is teh worst hit- and he practically has no control over “what ever the accusations are agaist”.

    grotesque !


  2. I am glad your family is fine. Islamic terrorism needs a cure and Kashmiri muslims need no Azadi. they need to leave kashmir and go to pakistan. period.


  3. We are just lucky enogh but we wont be lucky everytime. Some day we will also run out of it. I fail to understand what are we all acheiving by killing inncocent people?


  4. Glad to know that your family members are unharmed and yeah how much ever u try u dont understand what the ppl go thru unless u experience.
    Well all i can say is its riding our luck every micro second. U cant secure each and every place neither can u vary the bloddy terrorists.


  5. Glad to know your family members are ok. But then there were others who werent so fortunate. And similarly there are so many people who die like this somewhere everyday. everyday.


  6. even me and my family had a narrow escape.. me and hubby had taken his dad and mum out shopping in CP and we passed both central park and by gopaldas building in our car minutes before the blast occured
    its a sad and cowardly act…and as you rightly said… becomes difficult for secular people to defend the good muslims…
