The day after the blast….


Now the time is 2.46 AM...Late night, @ office… Stretching the shift…Because my team mates couldn’t come to office due to the unavailability of cabs after the serial bomb blasts in Bangalore city...

It has been one year over after I came here in Garden city, but this I my very
first experience, i.e., a live experience with a bomb blast...I can’t even imagine how the people in Kashmir living…?


Fig ->:The places were bomb is blasted…

I was thinking about the family of those two people who died in the blast…I was thinking mainly because, I also could be there instead of them since I crossed the same road where the blast happened just half an hour before…and even I never thought that there is going to happen such an incident shortly….instead of their family, my home could have received a bad news…but thank God, I was safe. But I know luck always won’t be with me…

After reaching office, I got to know about the blast…still me feel somewhat strange feeling while recollecting the moments…started to call each other and as usual, all network got jam. I was getting only one reply from both of my land line and hand phone “network busy, please try after sometime...”…Full of tension, anxiety, pain, fear, searching in news channels, net for latest updates, discussion ,rumors....Again keep on trying to reach via phone know whether my loved ones are safe and no issues with them...

I didn’t tell my parents about the blasts first…I called them in a moment when I not usually used to call them…I told them “I called simply, just want to talk to you”. My mom was telling me “I know, its not simply, there is something for sure...” but I didn’t say anything and hang the phone...after sometime, they came to know about the blasts from news channels and called be back...I could feel the tension in my papa’s voice...both of them were very tensed and like dying and asking me why I didn’t tell them in my previous call…in fact I just don’t want to make them afraid…my mom was saying “come back soon..”



I described my own feelings because I know you all might have gone through the same situation today…you all might be wished to back to home…my brother was saying “am rushing off to my home, enough of Bangalore...” But unfortunately we all know, we can’t run away like that by leaving our job, commitments all here…Heard that the terrorist's target was MNC’s…

There may be reasons for the terrorists for doing all those things…Government also might be taking actions to avoid unwanted incidents…but again all those incidents are repeating like an unavoidable thing in day-today life...who all are loosing their life/dear ones, we don’t know…just we can do pray that at least our dear ones should be safe…

And, once the network was started to work properly, there was a rain of calls, to know whether am safe or not, to know where am….to be honest, today only I came to know that there are so many people who do take care of me….who wants to see me safe…I got calls even form the very unexpected person...love you all….


Hopefully, I can see my dear ones again….

Good that nothing happened to you in the blast. But instead of being just a mute witness to all this terrorism can each one of us the majority who hates terrorism do something to prevent such happenings in future?
