Assam Blasts.. will the commoner be heard, ever??
Posted by creativecerebru on 03 November 2008
While 84 innocent lives were blown up in smokes, in a series of detrimental blast, reminiscent of Hollywood flicks, all the government (Assam state and central) could do was simply condemn the horrific act. The opposition took out rallies in protest, Mr Sharad Pawar, gave his quote as Assam Government's failure urging Mr. Tarun Gogoi to immediately step down. As much as I am in agreement with the opposition that these series of blasts is an inevitable display of security failure and intelligence breach, (considering the fact similar blasts had already occurred throughout sensitive regions in the nation); My question goes to the opposition party - If they had been in power, could they have managed to avoid such an occurrence, or could they have resolved the situation asap and convicted the culprits? I would also like to ask Mr. Sharad Pawar, if resignation is the only solution, is there another leader who can actually guarantee the security of the commoner. Are so-called leaders supposed to talk about quitting or are they supposed to take charge and get things done, Mr. Pawar? I am left wondering in amazement when people who move around surrounded by 5 bodyguards all the time, people who cannot even guarantee their own security; try to assure us of our security.
It was an overwhelming home calling moment in places like Delhi and Bangalore, where concerned young Assamese descendants march in silence with candles in their hands praying for the departed souls as well as seeking a solvent to terrorism, from the government. Being part of the rally myself, was a bittersweet experience. While I took joyous pride in the fact that many Assamese and non Assamese youngsters gathered to pledge for peace and humanity , the Indian Media which was busy probably enquiring about Shahruk Khan's birthday celebrations couldn't make it to this initiative. Correspondents from none of the national news channels were visible. Only some local channels felt the footage important enough to make it to a headline.
I would like to question our current leaders and media- are we, the commoners ever going to be heard? Is our voice not strong enough or not sale-able enough? Would you have given us mileage if we had resorted to a violent protest instead? Is violence is what is needed to make ourselves heard?
The Silent Protest March in Bangalore was organized by Assamese community on Nov, 02 from Mahatma Gandhi circle to CTO. The message was "Stop Killing Innocent People & Failure of the Government to Tackle Terrorism".
If you are a concerned Indian please spread the word.

A very germane post. I appreciate all the people who went for the Silent Protest March in Bangalore. Alas I couldn't be a part of it. Many would think what's d use of this. Terrorists won't stop blasting. But even a weak sound might turn out to be a roar someday.
