Friday, the 25th of July
I was sitting at my desk and working, when I get a call from my friends.
"haven't you heard? There are bomb blasts in the city, 7 so far! come ASAP"
After that call, I was dazed and, well, I'll admit it, a little bit scared. I got up from my seat and walked around the office and found most people still busily working. I thought this was very odd and asked sharan, a fellow intern, if he has heard of the blasts. He said yes, and gave me a few details; the office was still very calm.
A few minutes later, some people stuck their heads out of their cubicles and started talking. Most of them had big grins on their faces. I could hear people laughing and joking. Most of them were still immersed in their work. At this point, I was Pissed!! people's lack of concern was unbelievable to me. I couldn't do much about it though; I just glared at everyone and left for home.
Saturday,26th of July
Bomb blasts in Ahmadabad. My friends played Arcade games online while the news played in the back ground.
I didn't know what to make of it.
Sunday,27th of July
18 live bombs, diffused in Surat.
I went out for lunch and watched a couple of movies on my laptop.
I am not so upset at people's apathy anymore. I understand. Everyone in sensitized to it. All the violence, border disputes, terrorism has become part of everyday life and people dont care anymore. Even so, I cant help but wonder,"Where is humanity headed?"
