Death and Destruction. God Help Us!

  1. The first thing I saw on tele yesterday morning was NEWS of the Earthquake in China. Atleast 15,000 people are believed to be dead and thousands missing. Most of the vicitims were children who were caught unaware when their school building collapsed in a matter of seconds. Since China implements ‘one-child’ policy, a generation of children have been lost in some of the worst hit provinces.
  2. Day before, I also learnt of the serial blasts in Jaipur, where alteast 60 people are believed to be dead and atleast 150+ injured. The bombs were placed bicylcles parked in busy market areas. One of the bombs placed at Hanuman Temple was defused by the bomb defusal squad. As far as I remember, it was first Bangalore, then Delhi, then Hyderabad, then Ajmer Dargah and now Jaipur. The Intelligence Bureau (IB) should be re-named ‘The World’s Most Unintelligent Bureau (TWMUB)’. My reaction was that of shock when it happened in Delhi and Hyd. Now, I have somehow got used to the NEWS. They are bound to happen in our country…if not today..then tomorrow. I am sure most of us feel this way…since we live in a country where the security system is in shambles and IB seems to be doing nothing about it! It agitates me!
  3. Atleast 32,000 people are believed to be dead and scores unaccounted for due to Cyclone Nargis in Burma but the Burmese Military Junta is not accepting help from foreign authorities for food and aid…inspite of it’s people dying of starvation and illness. God, please give them some sense. First they force their power on the Burmese and now they don’t care inspite of so much suffering. If you want to help, please donate here. I read somewhere…IT IS ONLY THE POOREST THAT ARE HIT THE HARDEST BY NATURAL CALAMITIES.

My prayers are for the families who have lost their loved ones….to give them strength to cope with their irreplaceable loss. It is difficult…very difficult. But if our thoughts are with the vicitims and their families when we pray…it will be easier.

When such things happen, my faith in God is questioned. Why can’t God stop all this from happening?

  1. I hate the political leaders of our country , they still try to increase there vote bank on the bodies of peple lost life in these attacks.

    God Please save atleast little humanity in the leader of our country

  2. @vikasmta: agreed! It is how politicians in our country have become. No Ethics and No Conscience. They think it is very convenient to blame on foreign elements. It does not give any closure to the victims.

    @maxpwnage: Do you think God is listening :-/

  3. Ha, ha ha. I think it’s kind of funny; ironic really. Myanmar’s government it’s all about itself; I mean HIMself. It does not help it’s people, and people act of a sudden all shocked; it was to be expected, really. Secto-religious fanatical terrorism… Mmm, tough luck. It’s so far away from my sphere of reality that I literally can’t bring myself to care. I mean, poor people and all; but I have to get ready to go to work. China, the same, in a way they’re the worst of them all; since their only pretend to care; had they really care, then they would step down/reform and all that, everybody knows that the more development the country, the lower birth rate. Two birds with one stone. Then there’s the lolympics, Tibet’s protest, concentration camps for cats! etc. Our death and destruction means nothing to our godly ruler(s); unless they have a really twisted sense of humor, that is.

  4. Now we have more. Heard that there has been some suicide bombing in Sri Lanka killing 50 people.
    I don’t know if you believe in astrology but this month is very bad for all sunsigns. It will be only by next month that things would be better.
