New entry in the list of Natural Calamities........

Well, am not really going to write some content for a school book on what natural calamities mean, but then looks like we'll soon have to add Bomb Blasts and Terrorism to the list of the other disastrous natural calamities.....


How else would you explain the terrorism attacks happening in India today?


Just like we have no hold on Earthquakes, High-tides, Cyclones, Flood, and Volcanic Eruption, it seems that we have no hold on the Bomb Blasts and Terror attacks that shake the country today.


Not a single day goes by without some news of bomb, terror, fire and attack. Every paper and news cast has one of these words on their news item all the time. Children grow up seeing and hearing of these things. We go to a movie theatre and there the situation is worse. Not a single movie in town today is clear of attack and stunts. Don't explain that a commercial movie needs such things to me.....At least once in a while children should get to watch things that meet the standards of their mental age. Today, the only option is to watch Tom and Jerry cartoons.

Every one including me, here in this blog are talking about it, but none of us is quite able to do anything much... The thought aches....

No one is to blame.... Unless we all collectively come to a conclusion that the way things are going is not good for our school going kids, and do something about it, we surely will have to face a day when the child reads out aloud from one of the text books/Internet:
List two natural calamities : Earthquakes and Bomb Blasts.
