Serial blasts rock Bangalore, two killed

Terror struck the IT capital on Friday (July 25) after seven serial blasts rocked the southern city of Bangalore within a span of 60 minutes. Two persons, including a woman, have been killed and about 20 people have been reportedly injured. Confirming the reports of blasts, Police Commissioner of Bangalore — Shankar Bidri — said that explosives were hidden in relatively crowded areas of the city. Sources in the Intelligence Bureau have told TIMES NOW that the blasts may have been carried out by LeT and SIMI and that they could be retaliatory in nature. Police had arrested several SIMI and LeT operatives in the last six months.

This is the exact excerpt from the TIMES NOW headlines. Bangalore was considered SAFEST up until today. All the hubub and reputation that Bangalore had has been crushed in one single day. This is solid proof that no city is safe anymore. These blasts however, have not caused much damage. They seem to be like passing a message to the government or to the public.
Are we safe? Will Bangalore again return to its peaceful state? These questions are left un-answered. All we can do now is hope that whatever these factions are trying to say is conveyed to the government in a much safer way.

    EXACTLY…but still bangalore is safer than other cities…
    they just want to convey some message??? But what they want to….by killing innocent people…
    all these is just a beginning….

    the idea of blore being safe was ruined the day the IISc incident happened… glad these blasts were of low intensity..
    hope alls safe..

    APPARENTLY safe you mean. This is not the first time something so dreadful has happened. Remember the assasination in the J.N.Tata auditorium? All this prompts us to think-“Is Bangalore as safe as it is reputed to be?”

  • 4. Anniyan  |  July 25, 2008 at 6:38 PM

    Exactly. Yes all are safe. Thank you for your concern. But these are not directed towards damage, as I said in the post. They want to convey something to the government and they are doing a very dangerous and efficient job of it too.

    Oh yeah! Welcome to my blog. šŸ˜€

    i do agree that its not as safe as it was before…

  • 8. Anniyan  |  July 25, 2008 at 10:42 PM

    Everyone has to. It is an open secret. “Ragnarok is nigh!!”

    The Dawn of IT and the invent of the North Indians here in Bangalore has eventually led to the downfall of Bangalore as a whole.

    Why i meant North Indians, definitely no intent to dislike them…. they are so used to the fast life that they care a damn about anything around them. They only like to get their things right….

    Also, the people coming down south has only increased the no. of robberies, murder, etc……..

    Now the invent of IT in Bangalore is also the reason for the downfall beginning at bangalore. the people are totally not bothered about anyone else in life.

    Anyways, do you think you can contribute to anything by putting up things in this blog???? I think it is only venting your anger and inability on this……..

    I don’t plan to achieve anything other than sharing my views with fellow-bloggers and visitors who are kind enuf to take a look. The part about North-Indians is racist. I am thinking whether to allow it or not. However, I do agree with you about the ADVENT not “invent” of IT in Bangalore.

    I say it is a political move to destabilise the BJP govt wch has had its first victory in south India… I dont say i support BJP or i hate others, but it is quite a possibility. Terrorists and militants convey messages. True. But not with just crude bombs… Never before there has been such a small warning… and u know what comprised the bombs…? it was not some deadly chemical… it was just a few bolts and nuts which get dispersed haywire and cause physical damage in a random way… and wonder abt the timing of the blasts? Mid day in bus stops and places where population density was not very high…
    IF the warning was intended to be serious… then the proper place would not be Richmond circle where moving vehicles are present. and not a PARK opp Mallya hospital… it could well be some BMTC bus which carries heavy crowd making it VERY difficult for people to disperse…

  • 12. Anniyan  |  July 25, 2008 at 11:03 PM

    Very good point. I am thinking on the lines of agitated public groups. Maybe they are just some normal people like you and me who want to convey a message without causing much harm.

  • 13. harshasrisri  |  July 25, 2008 at 11:55 PM

    Quite a possibility… just a bunch of ppl each of whom represent the mad Japanese who went on a rampage… BUT, what have they achieved…? Civilians’ Panic, Police’s nightmares, Politicians’ attention and unrest in general… i pity myself for being born in his time man… i’d ve been happier if i was a pre stone age man… seriously…

  • 14. smallstar  |  July 26, 2008 at 4:46 AM

    I really hate bombs! šŸ˜¦

  • 15. Nikhil  |  July 26, 2008 at 7:22 AM

    Morons of the first order, these people! If killing other people is the only way to get our voice heard, then I prefer to be mute! šŸ™‚

  • 16. Anniyan  |  July 26, 2008 at 9:59 AM

    That is just called running away from your troubles. And these people have now acquired the undivided attention of everyone. Isn’t that enough if you want t deliver a message?

    Who doesn’t hon? No one likes bombs unless it is fireworks.
    *Happy weekend* *HUGS*

    I prefer to think they didn’t actually mean to kill anyone. Otherwise as Harsha said, they could have targeted very densely populated areas. But they chose not to. And these people who are now dead (I sincerely pray for their souls to rest in peace), may have only been a coincidence. Well, no amount of us talking and discussing here is going to solve why this happened. Until we know what has really happened, we can continue to express our views of it.

  • 17. smallstar  |  July 26, 2008 at 1:03 PM

    @Anniyan: yeah. Nobody likes bombs, that’s true… And I would want a world full of harmony… Is that still possible?? šŸ˜Æ

  • 18. Anniyan  |  July 26, 2008 at 2:04 PM

    Very doubtful. But it doesn’t cost anything to dream. Right?

  • 19. smallstar  |  July 26, 2008 at 2:51 PM

    @Anniyan: beh, so can we just dream?? I’m feeling so sad for this… But hopeful, anyway…

  • 20. arvind  |  July 26, 2008 at 7:58 PM

  • 24. Anniyan  |  July 28, 2008 at 11:00 AM

    I hear they have arrested someone. And this was meant for the whole of India. And I guess Bangalore was just a trial run. Very scary.

  • 25. Smallstar  |  July 28, 2008 at 11:58 AM

    How are ya? I hope you’ll have a great beginning of your week… *HUG*


  • 26. Anniyan  |  July 28, 2008 at 12:05 PM

    Wishing you the same. šŸ™‚
