Yet another bomb blast, rocked the Dil walon ka sheher Dili at 10.15 am on 7/9/11. Nothing New, Nothing Uncommon. Terrorists carried out their allotted task with perfection…So Hats Off To Them..And Hail The Indian Government who left no stone unturned in Shedding Crocodile Tears / Condemning The Blast / Visiting The Blast Site & Most Importantly Calling The Bomb Blast by The Terrorist a Cowardly Act. (I only wonder who the actual coward is!!)
And this way the days moved on!! But stop what about the Aam Admi who is at the receiving end of all this pandemonium, brutality, resentment, ordeal and emotional outburst. What does he / she do, when each individual is bound to be affected either actively / passively by such non-stop instances of carnage and angst.
Terror attacks massacre countless innocent lives. Such repeated occurrences are intended to incite fury, elicit rage, but one cannot help but concur to the fact that with passing time there’s been a distressing numbing of our society, which has been witness to string of fatal bomb blasts and other variations of terror attacks.
I am no psychologist / sociologist to give hard core comments but my observation compels me to say that the regularity of such terror attacks has triggered the process of habituation. For most of us today a vicious bloodbath gets condensed to a simple piece of information. And sadly enough casualty / death just become just a number. Who knows may be in some corner of our minds we even associate the event with a scene in a movie. Slowly may be our conscious has been brutalized and a numbness has developed in our hearts.
I am sure it happens with all of us following every terror strike, our foremost reaction is to confirm if family and friends are all right. Once everyone’s been accounted for, life gets back to the ritualistic routine.
So is it that we have begun to accept things as they are for we know nothing much is going to change. For we are tired of Condemnation and Condolences? For we just want our friends and family to be safe and live life without any hassle and tension.
For Its Easy To Be Comfortably Numb!!
