Yo! What's with this attitude?

Well I was meaning to write this yesterday but thanks to the media hogging the time sphere with there relentless show casing of the blasts in Delhi and what they think of the situation, I chose to wait for a bit. I was a bit sad at what is transpiring in this country.

To get the stats right, it seems there has been 20 terror strikes in 2 years time in India. And worst still there has been seven strikes this year (leaving the Jammu bombings, it is a normal affair there!). So what has the country/county done to avert the situation?!? In the US it happened and we know Bush is F'ing mad at Iraq for some reason, It happened in UK and there was some action taken.. But even after the seven serial blasts, the terrorists seem to be at large. Earlier they used to bomb and run the shit out of the place, now with technological advancement they communicate to the government about the bombing, place which is going to blow off and they bomb at will.

Here we are sitting and dealing with lot of stressful conditions like working our ass off, pay taxes in time, deal with the stupid x factor - inflation sitting at 12.04%(No other sensible country has this sort of a percentage going. My prev blog notes talk about this percentages in countries and you would find hopelessly pathetic countries taking the hit!), struggle to get any remotely girl like thing, we don't need bombings to make our already sorrow life to even remorsefully bad.

But that beside the point, in most of the attacks this year, particularly, I found a pattern. That is the day after the bombings - don't matter the magnitude, the people (read the survivors) got out to the open and started going to work as though nothing happened. The news channels and the ministers took a hint out of it and started calling it "The Spirit of the City" is what you see.

Is it really the spirit of the city that is making these people go to their respective jobs [OR] is it the indifferent feeling that people would have deep down? I wish I had known what this reaction meant. I will not be able to say or feel what it is unless we experienced any such bomb attacks. I am sure how this government would react to the people who would be running around like headless chicken ! They would issue notices to the smart still elusive terrorist group that 'we will catch you and whip your candy ass'.

And so the terrorists would continue to do what they do, the government would continue to do what they do, the headless chickens read the people would do what they do - In between all this, there would be this feeling sticking out in some people - Is this indifference or is this spirit of the city or is this people's response to their fate hanging lose or is it all the Y Factor - Karma?

I don't know, I don't feel anything, anymore. The more hate and anger towards the country, may be. Tomorrow I would become a headless chicken hanging loose - who knows, who knows...?
