Last night was a rude shock after I was returning from work in Hyderabad. The blasts tat rocked the most favourite spots and tourist spots in Jaipur kind of created tremors in me and ripples in my mind. I was researching on the RED TERROR or Naxalism / Left wing seperatism and here was the rudest and most inhuman attacks on humans by humans. Probably there would not be any other species on earth or elsewhere that would be killing its own species for meaningless things and indifferences.

Condemn the attacks and prays for the souls of the departed. We pray for the families of the deceased.
