India has many facets,one is a country progressing fast and taking its rightful place in the comity of nations,
another is of a under privileged downtrodden hinterland where children die due to lack of nutritious food and basic health care.
On one side we have temples like the Tirupati,Siddhivinayak and Akshardham which are so well managed that it compares to a corporate, on the other hand Chamunda Temple of Mahendra garh where 160 people died due to slippery way and stampede.
I fail to understand the mindset when healthy and able crush the old and child to save owns life??
Cut to any stampede its the physically weak and minors who die most.
When there is some bad happening in one home or flat no body wants to buy that property?
What about the temple where 160 plus people die in an hour???
What we take as fate is the callousness of the temple trust and the lack of civic behavior of our citizens.
My heart is saddened by the huge loss of life and distress caused to as many families.
Today we make it a point to avoid all big social events cause we fear a bomb blast or a stampede..
What future am i giving to my kids????
