Will The Situation Change?

Posted in India by Tall Guy on November 27, 2009

The images of the November 26 attacks were being replayed across the media channels as the day happen to be the anniversary of the terror attack that shook the nation by surprise.

Parade was carried out by the Bombay police to show their newly acquired artillery and equipments in case such an event occur again.  Politicians (inside & outside Parliament) tried to capitalize on the moment by asking questions  about compensation not being received by the families of those who lost their lives.

While the media debated on how much the scenario have changed then.  The people made sure that they show their solidarity by lighting candles.

The one question that is still lurking on everyone’s mind is “Has enough been done to prevent such attacks in the future?”  That’s a question no one has an answer.

People do have short memory.   The images that are still fresh in our mind would fade away in memories.  Hope we don’t forget what we have learned.

Somewhere down the line we have failed to ask the right questions.  Voting alone is not going to bring a change in the administration of a government.  Holding government accountable will!!

It’s time that we start doing our bit for the nation as someone has rightly said”

Ab Tak Jiska Khoon Na Ubala, Khoon Nahi Woh Pani Hain
Jo Des Ke Kaam Naa Aa Sake Woh Bekar Jawani Hain…

    First of all .. welcome to wordpress.. 🙂

    And well call me cynical.. but the next time the media is going to talk about this .. is next year same date..

    I find that the social responsibility of the media and the common man is quite transitional !

    Remember Kargil? How much “we” were affected by the plight of the soldiers? What exactly has been done? funny thing is neither anyone remembers it ( other than in stupid debates) nor anyone has been taken into account…

    Me: Thanks a lot, good to see you are the first one to comment 🙂

    Completely agree with your views. That the sad part but then again if we want to change they system, we need to part of the system to change it and only then the situation will improve. We still have a long way to do that….
