Terror and beyond: Are we expecting peace amidst turmoil?
Violence, both externally driven and internal, has become a way of life in India. So much so, that each morning our eyes scan the newspaper for acts of terror. We let out an involuntary sigh of relief if the papers are bereft of pictures of shattered skulls, broken limbs and blood-stained roads.

But such days are getting as rare as snow in the desert for Indians. The violent terror attacks in Mumbai on 26/11 2008 had barely receded into the recesses of our collective minds when the bakery blast at Pune returned to remind us of the external threats. And just as we were reeling from that blow to the solar plexus came the upper-cut straight to the jaw in the form of a daring Naxal attack on a police camp in Sildah, West Bengal.
And our country continues to bleed from a thousand cuts inflicted on us by envious neighbors and militant desperados.
In fact, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh surprised many by his recent statement that naxalism and not terrorism was the bigger threat to India's internal security. He sought to know the reasons for this sense of alienation amongst people in central India and suggested that the new age policeman must train to be more professional, motivated, empowered and above all trained to use technology for investigation.
Be that as it may, the question that springs to mind is the ease with which terror actors get access to weapons of war and funds in the region. While external help is easy to understand, where do the Maoists find the money and the guns to raise a stink?
The answer is not too difficult to fathom. Fly three hours in any direction from New Delhi and what do you get...? A conflict zone or one where a conflict has recently resolved. There is Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Nepal - each a hotbed of conflict and each providing a haven for desperados with a veritable departmental store for arms purchase.
In effect, we are expecting a peaceful home in a noisy neighborhood!

Basically our leaders fail to understand serious issues like terrorism, separatism, casteism,corruption and nepotism..We suffer because these leaders have no vision..no ideaology or set standard of morality and public service.
Imagine one major terror attack in Israel. This tiny nation will just go and destroy those who are responsible for such mishap. No international opinion has ever deterred them from the action of saving their nation. That is the top most priority and nothing is above it or beyond it. The shear patriotism and courage has made it the most fearsome enemy to those who seek tto destroy it.
Here how many of us can really spell PATRIOTISM for what it means. Unfortunately we all are part of the system that erodes all the value based issues and actions...
Need an Iron man to lead the country which is ruled by limpid, corrupt and self-seeking politicians..
Terrorism, probably, is as old as civilized man's history. Vyasa, Homer, Chanakya, Machiavelli, Lenin, Mao, HO Chi Min...the list is long: All deal with terrorism, that existed around, at least once. Whether we like it or not, we will have to live with terrorism, of one kind or other, in the foreseeable future. With tight security, eternal vigil and some luck we may be able to lessen the number of incidents and its intensity. Is there a way of preventing terrorism in society? Perhaps yes, by educating society to be rational in all facets of life. If man begins to live a fully rational life, then poverty, misery, hatred of each other and above all selfishness and greed can be eliminated. And those are the real causes of terrorism. Once the causes are removed there will be no raison detre for terrorism.
There is only one way to buy peace (for India)----- Bomb out and annihilate Pakistan... don't bother about Human rights and all those farce.
In case our Govt. lacks the guts to do so another alternative I can suggest that hire Mossad and get those B*****ds like Hafiz sayeed, Mullah Omar, dawood ibrahim, Salauddin, lakhvi, Massod azhar and rest of the notorious agents of terrorism as in the list killed. By doing so, we can buy peace atleast for couple of years .... may be 5 yrs.
Even in case Indian Govt fails to do so, then they must send Shah Rukh Khan to the "beautiful neighbor called Pakistan" ( as per SRK) to do the negotiation with the lawless Pak Govt and the terror outfits in that country.
Rest ... waste of time....
