Sad!! Guys, be careful.
I am glad that the casualities are less eventhough many blasts are reported.
Let us not give these incidents unwanted importance and make the people who have done this happy.

well guys lets stop raising charges both politically and trying to find out who did it.
Please dont send panic messages and just be careful. We still dont know the number so please stop posting bigger numbers. Remember the mumbai blast where one channel told 4 blasts but there were only 2. Can lead to panic.
Be careful all you guys out there. You never know a fraction of a second can change everything

We in Bangalore should take these Blast in our strides and show these guys that nothing can deter us, only then they will realise their failures.

Hope and pray that all TBHP are safe and sound all across the city.

Default Please Ignore the Blast

Please Ignore the Blast that will help in demotivating the people behind it from further attacks just as Mumbai reacted to the shamefull act.

Be carefull in public places and stop rumors and panic from spreading among people
Bangloreans will take it in their stride for sure

One more blast under transformer near Gopalan Mall in Mysore road. No damage done.

I am watching the TV media and now it is turning out to be Political fight rather than saying its being done by Terrorrist.

Opposition advised governement this is what happens when they recruit same caste officers. They advised governement to appoint able officers rather than recruiting their beloved ones.

Looking into less Intensity of the blasts and few statements from different politicians made in public now it is turing out to be fight between Political parties rather Terrorist activity which is good sign because this will cool down very soon once they get some understanding between each other.

Very sad that public has to pay for someone else fighting.

Yeah, given the instensity of the blasts, it does not look like a large terror org's job - more a local issues (read political) led job. As an afterthought, its probably the "cheapest" warning Bangalore could've got to get its security framework (intelligence, mainly) in shape. There are just too many soft targets for hard security to be effective.

I hope everyone of our team members are safe. I think its time we reevaluate our security measures and have better personnel and sophisticated equipment to deal with terrorist activites. Its time for the police to do some hunting around.

This was indeed unfortunate to strike Bangalore city and some of my friends and family are coming down from Belgaum to Bangalore on road tomorrow and folks is it advisable to travel. Ofcourse there would be many check posts all through the journey, apart from that i don't see any problem. Need advise.
