Its not a question of money... the governemt has ample amount of money but its filling someone's pockets than going to the needy.
I was watching the RTI programme on NDTV and a startling revelation was made regarding shelter homes being run by Delhi Govt for street kids. One of them showed an annual spending of 40 Lakh rupees on 7 children and we all know how these homes are run.
If we still dont do anything about the politics and vote bank menace in this country we are doomed.

Thumbs down

"In an exclusive interview to CNN-IBN, Patil claimed that the information was not actionable since it didn't provide specifics on when and where the attacks would take place" - this is Mr Patil our home minister.
GOD SAVE OUR COUNTRY WITH SUCH PEOPLE RUNNING IT

Did he expect the terrorists to share the team profile, detailed resume, progress report and SOV and timelines beforehand, so that he could do anything aobut the blasts.

I dont know about Home Ministry, but he can sure work in one of my client company, where they need a detailed project plan info before they brief us on the project.

Mantra is we all need to be extremely alert about our surroundings and be wary of unwanted suspicious behaviour. It is disheartening that every month there are blasts in India for get which part / state but India is getting hit and we helpless common man of the RK Laxman cartoons have no choice but watch helplessly on TV and get effected.

At least in Bangalore they're busy chasing live band artists and giving moral science lessons.
You left out, attacking Christians, in addition to the above!. Where is this country heading?. I fear all the economic success will be quickly brought to nothing by our politicians. Where do these people(politicians) come from?.(Shudder).Also, shouldn't we reaching out to moderate Muslims and Christians instead of targeting them?. What if all the minorities in India gang up and take more revenge.The result will be catastrophic.Do we really need this?.My heart goes out to the victims of this and other acts of terrorism. We must avenge the attacks. We must not keep quiet.

Damn, got a social text message from YouMint.com stating there has been a blast in Mehrauli.

News states 1 killed and 15 injured. I sincerely do hope everyone is OK. This is sad, really sad :-(

Another blast in Delhi!

But no. Chalta hai. We don't need any anti-terror laws yet. Existing laws are enough.

Pseudo-secularism rocks!

*heads to the nearest mall for shopping, fingers crossed*

Even roaming on the streets is impossible now. with people throwing bombs at random.
As for anti-terror law. Well law will come into play when you can a terrorist. Delhi police seems to be pretty incompetent in that.
After this blast now I am really wondering that who did the police really catch?

The news is confirmed. 20 dead, 45 seriously injured and 20 with light injuries at a blast outside Gate No:5 of the Delhi High Court.

The police suspect a terrorist attack by the Lashkar and the IM together.

The worst part is the home ministry denying any intel reports on it.
