Kill those terrorists !!


In the recent times, terrorist attacks in india has become a usual thing. 
Yesterday,  The news of serial blasts in the capital city rocked the country. The pain and shock echoed in all the news channels yesterday night.
Its really shocking to believe these serial blasts occurred within just 2 months since the serial blasts in bangalore and ahmedabad. Though bangalore blasts dint claim much of life and property, Ahmedabad blasts were detrimental, many lives lost, one blast among them occurred within a govt. hospital where patients were being treated, many doctors too lost their lives.. 
Similarly  yesterday's delhi  blasts have shaken the whole country's intelligence system. Almost 20-25 dead and more than 100 injured. Who is to blame for all this happenings. Why isn't our intelligence bureau, vigilant enough to take good precautions. Why is the intelligence network so weak, that any damn fellow can easily carry out such high intensity blasts without govt. officials knowing about it. Yes it is difficult to keep track of country with huge population like ours.. but thts not the excuse, we have the resources, but don't utilize our networks well. Finally all the investigations die out in a month or so. there is no continuous tracking of terrorist activity in the country.. A group 'Indian mujahideen' has supposedly claimed their role in the blasts, by sending email to all the news channels and the govt. calling their operation as 'BAD'.  bangalore, ahmedabad, delhi as complete after delhi blasts and tht next target is mumbai. These muslim extremists are spoiling the name of the religion, by committing crime in the name of Allah and Islam.

Finally the common people suffer, lose their lives...  Just can extend my condolences to the families who lost their loved ones. We need to stand together and fight against terrorism as a country, and crack down on these anti-social elements..

N - Powered India

This Day is a historic day for India, with regards to foreign policy initiatives in Indian Political history which have been successful. The Nuclear Suppliers' group (NSG) agreed to grant India a "clean waiver" from its existing rules, which forbid nuclear trade with a country which has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) in Vienna.
The Whole nuclear deal saga, which our Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh said, 'Its a deal for which you can even sacrifice the Government' , sort of came to an end with the waiver from NSG. But then thers more to it. Still the issue, that if india conduct the nuclear tests, will the agreement will be terminated immediately, is still not clear..
But there are many positives out of this waiver
First of all recognition of India, as a emerging superpower among the other developed countries. That can be clearly seen by the desperate attempts made by US to get a waiver, by convincing other members of NSG. Besides the whole formation of NSG was because of India's nuclear test at Pokhran in 1974. The same NSG has bend thier rules to accomadate india into the mainstream nuclear countries, thereby giving a green signal for nuclear trade itself is more than a historic day for India in World Economy..
What this deal means India can carry out nuclear trade, which will help big time replinishing our fuel resources. It wil also allow access to sensitive hi-tech nuclear power which serves industry and help some sectors like Pharma, Defence, Manufacturing, IT, Space etc. There will be more easier access to Nuclear technology.
With this nuclear deal and NSG waiver, Its not only improved ties with the US, but also with other major powers like Germany, France, UK, Russia, Japan. At the same time, ties with China may have taken a backstep. The unexpected objections taken by China against the waiver in the NSG meeting could be indicative of some cold relationships with the neighbours.
Nevertheless, even with its pitfalls, the 123 Indo-US nuclear deal and NSG waiver came as a welcome deal for India. And i would say its a win win situation for India atleast as of now.
Our Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, has envisaged himself as a able leader of the country through the trust vote in the parliament and Nuclear deal.
Now hopefully the US congress also approves the 123 pact and the deal is expected to be signed at the end of this month. India wil also sign similar pacts with other Nuclear Suppliers.
