This was the response to IPL matches being moved out of Bangalore :
“We had provided full security to the match on Saturday and assure that all security measures needed for the semi-finals will be provided,” Yeddyurappa said.
“The government will not allow anyone to disturb peace in Bangalore,” he added.
Ahead of the meeting, Bidari described as “unfair” the IPL decision to move the semi-finals to Navi Mumbai.
The decision has been taken on “baseless and false presumption”, he said in a statement.
“If they don’t revise the decision to shift, I am afraid the BCCI will be committing a serious mistake and will be besmirching the fair name of a secure city like Bangalore,” Bidari said.
“We will take full and complete responsibility for the security,” Bidari said.
Those are gutsy statements, enough to make terrorists rethink their plans, if any.
Except for the teeny-tiny fact : There was an explosion in Bangalore just a couple of days earlier.
This is dedicated to all the gym-going, brawny and cool dudes in Bangalore :
‘Moral police’ seem to be on the prowl again on Bangalore’s streets. This time the target was a man – for wearing sleeveless tees!
Advocate and activist Jagdeesh B.N. was attacked Sunday by five people, on Millers Road in the heart of the city, apparently for wearing a sleeveless t-shirt.
Right or wrong they might be; but in this big bad world where everyone is subconsciously sexist at some level, the ‘moral police’ have shown us the way by being righteous and non-sexist men of honour. Sleeves off to them.
On the subject of the recent bomb blasts and the bombs that didn’t blast, apparently, the idea of planting bombs in hospitals could be inspired from Ram Gopal Varma’s latest film Contract : Link
Well, I thought it was going to be tough to nab the terrorists. Now all we need to do is round up the handful of people who have seen the movie !
On that note, do check out his blog where he tries to get some pleasure by ripping apart the views and statements of critics and his fans. You cannot find a more stereotypical atheist.
P.S. : For people expecting a post on Sushma Swaraj’s profound theories, I find it below my dignity to even write about it.
Another terror attack. City : Mumbai. So you know it is to “cripple the economic capital of India”. City : Bangalore. So you think it is “to cripple the IT sector.” City : Ahmedabad. So before you read further, your brain tells you it is “due to Godhra”. So in a way, don’t we all already know the targets ?
As a fitting reply to the terrorists, our Home Minister rambles on about some acts in the constitution and some federal agency which I am guessing is going to be this magical team which detects terrorists in the womb. But the most disturbing fact according to me is that the people planning and executing this are Indians, so we cannot even blame our loving neighbors for sending over guests to pursue their career here.
But is terrorism the biggest threat, as claimed by the Government and all of us at this moment ? Can it ever be, is my question ?
I have with me about four paragraphs written after this, but I thought it would be best to end it at that question.
