Soft Means troubled, as a Nation

Terrorism, rogue nation, dirty bomb, big brother

The terrorism is here to stay much to the agony of the credulous mindset of the generation which saw its beginning and the spread. The brave and boastful political statements only help demonic minds to reaffirm their ideological (read theological) commitment. Ad-hoc measures, by their own failure, allow blood thirsty terrorists to prey on innocent victims and help grow the terror tribe. It needs to be seen and treated like a catastrophic danger looming large on human existence.

Paranoid it may sound, but somewhere in some obscure part of the globe a ‘dirty’ bomb is getting ready to hit once again the peace-loving citizenry living in some brighter part of the globe. Keeping that in mind , the international leaders may get their scripts right much in advance. It will not go waste ,take my word.

There is nothing like last and final in this game of religious hatred.

US of America has realized this fact much before others. The proof is in surviving safe. 9/11 etched a scar in their memory and their pride said—‘again ? over our dead economic power !’. No recurrence so far. America has seen these few years of safe living at the cost of billions of dollars and thousands of lives lost by their friend nations. We are one , the foremost and the most vulnerable of them.

We too will survive terrorism ,undoubtedly . But we will have to see, in the process, lots of blood and gore , that too if we don’t ourselves become. Our political leadership is in total bewilderment , hoping only God or America to come for the rescue. Our people have accepted it as fate. Our intelligentia is cool, mourning every visitation of the devil. We have learnt, during these years , the art of neighbouring terrorism .We consciously opted to accuse Pakistan rather than taking hard decisions to prevent it from. It is, perhaps, serving our political purpose. Losing lives of Indians, our fellow nationals, our brethrens is now nothing but fodder for media . We are, after all, not Americans.

America has fended terror off its boundaries at least for the moment. It has technically fortified itself with grit and determination. America values and hence fears the loss of American lives. India makes hollow and provocative statements , knowing little that a new breed of terrorism is growing in her own backyard.

Pakistan by its delinquent behavior and India for its childish accusations , one deliberately and the other by default , invited America to play big brother. US , for a change, excercised phenomenal restraint and that put paid . Its tone gradually changed to that of a stressed parent and every advice (veiled diktat) then started with — “ Both of you guys ..” . International community , had found reason, more so to play yesman to the mighty, to equate India with Pakistan on all fora . That is now an accepted fact. Both of us it is made to look that are equally responsible for Kashmir problem. India is no more perceived an innocent sufferer of terrorism ,thanks to intermittent communal disharmony popping up in certain pockets , eventually provide breeding grounds for smuggled seeds of terrorism. Standing little short of being dubbed as a rougue nation , India may have to pay heavily for falling into bad company, cry she may hoarse herself proving innocent.

There is still time to say a loud no to many a things. One needs to be more or less hard to be strong. Soft means troubled, for a nation.
