It's more like the deja vu of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1993_Mumbai_bombings" [Broken] in the same city.arunbg said:Was just watching the news bulletin myself.
Communication is completely disrupted. No terrorist group has claimed responsibility yet. The capital is on high alert too.
The events arise deja vu of the London blasts though.
I hope vaisakh is all right.
Reuters NewsThe Mumbai blasts came hours after suspected Islamist militants killed seven people, six of them tourists, in grenade attacks in Indian Kashmir's main city, Srinagar, police said, the most concerted targeting of civilians in months.
Me too.neutrino said:Glad to know that, Reshma.
That's debatable. Anyway, I think it's too early to talk about this. We need to know more about how the incident happened before we can start pointing fingers.I'm not sure when the politicians are going to realise it (they know about it, but are just pretending), but they could use all the money they give as compensation, after rail accidents and events such as these, into making better security arragnements at important locations and a better rail network.
Saving lives, debatable? They're going to spend money either way, but why not spend a good sum once and for all in making the railways much more safe?siddharth said:That's debatable.

How would you do this? Any ideas?Reshma said:I think it is high time they improve safety in public places and not put innocent people in danger because of such callousness.
If I board a train with two bags, stow them under my seat, and leave - an hour later - with only one bag, is anyone going to notice?Reshma said:Surveillance cams on every train?? Other than the Delhi metros I don't think any other railway system has it in India.
The conviction rate of the blasts that has taken place in the last thirteen years is almost nil. This is mainly because there is absolutely no intelligence source expect the "shoeshine boys" on the railway platforms who not nearly as effective :grumpy:. Cameras in railways stations can serve as a deterrent to trouble makers or atleast provide some visual evidence to detect suspicious activities. People here have become so cynical that they don't even want to suggest any measures to improve security . The ticket fares of railway systems are increased every year but little changes is seen in the services. I don't see anything wrong in investing some money in hidden cams if not anything else.Gokul43201 said:If I board a train with two bags, stow them under my seat, and leave - an hour later - with only one bag, is anyone going to notice?
