Sad Part of Busy City Life

When you start living a busy city life, then you soon come to know about many of its disadvantages. I recently shifted to an apartment bulding with many facilities; however, still I miss many things like the beautiful song of the Common Tailorbird and Cinarous Tit in the morning. Except Pigeon and Common Myna, no other bird visits my apartment which is very different from my earlier home where it was very common to meet new birds daily.

The other sad point is lack of connection between the people living next door. Here people hardly interact with each other and thus, we don't know our neighbors. The other big difficulty is crossing roads full of vehicles and long wait at the red lights. In cities, people want to run very fast; however, we don't have an infrastructure which can provide fast movement of people.

With time, more and more people from villages are migrating to cities and thus putting pressure on the already stressed city infrastructure. People are forced to travel on the city roads full of noise and air pollution. Whereas in a village, you enjoy fresh air and less busy roads. City life is slowly removing away life from the lives of people, so city people are becoming a machine.

Former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam Dies at 84

I just hear a shocking news on many news channels that former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam Dies at 84. He was one of the most popular Indian Presidents and till his death, he was inspiring Indian youth to achieve new heights in life.

He was in Shillong to give a lecture to the students of IIM. He collapsed while delivering the lecture and immediately rushed to hospital where he died. As per the available reports, he suffered a major cardiac attack.

I was just becoming normal after the shockful incidence of terrorist attack in the Denanagar town of Punjab and this news came forward. He served as the President of India from 2002 to 2007. He was also known as the missile-man because of his extraordinary work for Indian missile system.


Has Terrorism been Back in Punjab (India)?

Terrorism, Punjab, Back
From the last few days, I am asking this question to myself that has terrorism is trying to come back in Punjab because of many incidents which points towards the revival of bloody terrorism. Today's attack by a few terrorists in the Denanagar Town (District Gurdaspur) of Punjab has showed that this threat is real. The three terrorists came in army uniform in the morning and attacked many areas of Denanagar (Gurdaspur).

Terrorist, Dena Nagar, Gurdaspur They attacked the Dena Nagar Bus stand, a nearby hospital, Police station and Police quarters. In this incident 7 civilians, 5 policemen and 3 militants died. Punjab Police's two senior police officers died in this incident, their names are IG (Counter Intelligence) Gaurav Yadav and SP Baljit Singh.

It took 12 hours for the security personnel to neutralize these militants, which shows the preparedness of these attackers. All militants were heavily armed and they came in army uniforms. This incident again highlights that there is a big failure on the ground of Indian intelligence agencies which failed to track the plan of the terrorists.

Terrorists not only made an attempt of suicidal attack, they also tried to blow the nearby rail bridge so that they can close the vital rail link to Jammu Kashmir; though, police got the inform of bombs on the rail track on time and these bombs were diffused without causing any harm.

Bombs on Railway LineDena Nagar is very close to Jammu and Kashmir and the international border with Pakistan and due to this reason, this incident may be work of J&K based terrorist outfits. For the long time the Punjab was very peaceful and as we are closing towards the assembly elections in Punjab, these incidents have suddenly started appearing.

In the past, Punjab has seen the pain of terrorism in which millions of innocent people died and we can't afford to allow terrorism to come back in Punjab. It is the duty of Punjab Police and center agencies to deal firmly with all people or organizations who are trying to burn Punjab again.

Today's attack in Dena nagar town of Punjab indicates that Terrorism has again flourished in Punjab; therefore, Punjab government needs to be very alert of this matter. Any single mistake by Punjab government or central government can spoil the peaceful atmosphere of Punjab.
