Our National Security

It's really taken a long time coming. And finally here it is,my first post, and what better day to write one than Christmas Day.

The year 2008 has really been successful in exposing how pathetically weak the National Security of our country is, thanks to the series of blasts and other incidents that happened right through the year, most important of them being the Mumbai terror attacks. In spite of the IT revolution, the 8% plus GDP growth, our own mission to moon and all progress the country has witnessed in the recent years, we still remain a country where young children are kidnapped/murdered , females are acid-washed, PWD engineers are lynched , pistols can breach metal-detectors, people are open-fired in railway stations, hotels/restaurants are never safe, anything and everything can explode and all that we, as citizens of this great country can do is to shed a drop of tear, watch proceedings on the TV, light up candles and march in peace rallies or dedicate a century or a Christmas carol as a token of remembrance.

Just think about it people.

Why do i blog???

This is a BIG question which i feel every newbie blogger must address before starting off. My perception of a blog or of any piece of text shared by someone in a public portal such as the Internet for that matter is that it must convey information that impacts the 'stupid common man' as i would like to put it in some way or the other. Being from an engineering background, to me sense and logic matter a lot in anything and everything i either read about or intend to convey and i'll try my best to make sure that my blog reads perfect on these lines.

The topics that I would like to blog on will include socially-relevant issues , sports, technology and of course some amount of humour for the time being. I might very well expand my spheres in the days to come. I very much look forward to interacting with my readers with the only request being comments whatever they may be, be rational and informative. With this, I would like to leave you waiting for my first post. Sayonara!!
