At least 36 to 40 people have lost their lives in the incident and around 70 people were injured. The incident came just after the bombing of the Famous Mecca Masjid on 18 May 2007 here in the City.
Police speculation say that a couple of the RDX chemicals presumably used by the terrorists are still out there. Investigations also claim that there were two explosives found in public places which didn't go off.
My Mizo friends in Hyderabad are confirmed to be safe from harm. Though some did plan to go to Lumbini park in the same evening, but dropped the idea due to the weather.
26 August 2007: The police have found 19 unexploded bombs in Hyderabad a day after at least 40 people were killed in blasts Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy blamed on terrorists based in Bangladesh or Pakistan. New Delhi has sent extra police and special bomb detection equipment to Hyderabad
Be safe. God bless
The saint also denied any Government support and said that the Communist Government in Tripura offered no help to them. And while it was impossible for Hindus to live in Kohima, laborers in the tea gardens there have to follow the diktat of the missionaries. Apart from that, in Mizoram, where the Christians are the majority, 35,000 were ostracized from their caste for not adopting Christianity."
http://www.indianexpress.com/res/web/pIe/ie/daily/19990208/ige08029.htmThis is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. And this is why I hate reporters who do a bad job. Well mr.journalist-man let me point something to you:
- First thing is, there aren't that many Hindus among the Mizos to be "ostracized".
- Secondly, the few devotees who are in Mizoram (mostly people who come from outside the state) live in harmony with the local people. One great example is, there is a Big Hindu temple next to a Christian minister (Member of Legislature) and here every important Hindu festivals are conducted.
Why do we have to fight with dirt. Lets take pillows instead!!!
Arre Yaar! Are your sure?
Just the other day, i was with my friend buying somethings from the store, when a man walked up to us... Cleared his throat and came out with the most fake accent i have ever heard "excuse me, which country?"
At that point i would love to give my friend the credit of being patient enough to explain the details of 'his' country to a man who thinks he knows more just because he speaks Hindi. Being more similar to the Chinese side of descent, me and my friends get a lot of hu-has from my fellow Indians.
Its a shame for the country when the people doesn't recognize their own fellow citizens. Just because your brother wears different clothes does not imply he is no more your brother. We should recognize the fact that there are so many things different in each one of us, that makes us all very human. If one day we all look and feel the same way, then that is the day we come out of a production line.
We should all learn to respect each other. By saying this, i have definitely tried my part. I have tried (alot) to get along with people who dress properly but have DIRTY Feet. Believe me, i have tried.
Take a look and see. (It runs 65 minutes with a transcript here)
lyrics really relate to me. The song is worth having an
introspection on. Try it
I keep trying to find a life
On my own, apart from You
I am the king of excuses
I've got one for every selfish thing I do
What's going on inside of me?
I despise my own behavior
This only serves to confirm my suspicions
That I'm still a man in need of a Savior
I wanna be in the Light
As You are in the Light
I wanna shine like the stars in the heavens
Oh, Lord be my Light and be my salvation
Cause all I want is to be in the Light
All I want is to be in the Light
The disease of self runs through my blood
It's a cancer fatal to my soul
Every attempt on my behalf has failed
To bring this sickness under control
Lord, I'm still a man in need of a Savior
Mark Twain [Samuel Langhornne Clemens] (1835-1910)
Act in the valley so that you need not fear those who stand on the hill.
The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made.
Groucho Marx (1890-1977)
There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way, and not to give others absurd maddening claims upon it.
Christopher Darlington Morley (1890-1957)
Do just once what others say you can't do, and you will never pay attention to their limitations again.
