Terror again? Hehe, nothing new…..

I chose this particular title for my 50th post on this blog because it reflects the attitude of the Indian government and people towards what is fast becoming an ignored sector in people protection and security.

Terror, with it’s wings wide open, stuck yet again. Another attack. Another city in crisis. More people dead. Does it matter? I seriously doubt it.

The irony remains that the UPA is well aware yet again that dreaded PoK outfits LET & JEM are behind the attacks. India’s policy of handling terror, which is becoming increasingly annoying and irritating, comes under the scrutiny yet again.

Being aware of terror and thwarting it is as smart as the country can get now. Because once terror is in action, we are embarassingly powerless to handle it.

Despite being a military powerhouse, our political system and approach towards sensitive situations just don’t make us capable of handling terror by the struff of it’s neck.

In the end, all one can do is look up to God and hold hands together, praying that justice will at least come from the heavens…..

Chak De stands out…..

I repent something. I regret something. I only spent Rs. 50 on Chak De India. Damn.

Going for an early showing of what close associates and friends were describing as a stand-up-and-salute movie, I put aside my anti-Bollywood feelings and must admit that it was worth it. It wasn’t a movie that I saw. I saw a dream. A dream to see India become a world leader in sports and bring unlimited ecstacy to the people.

Arguably, sports remains the most mystically unattached art that India is yet to fully associate with. Or rather, an art that is forgotten despite past glories. Chak De India showed exactly what is to be done.

Even with the worst facilities and training(although these should be bettered of course), people can emerge winners. Adversity breeds team spirit and a will to perform outside expectations. It takes more than just talent to create winning teams.

A special thanks to Shah Rukh Khan, who is fast emerging as an icon with a difference…..
