German Bakery, Pune

14th February, 2010

Hole in the wall. What about the hole in the life of those who still live? What about those who left?

It is a student's city for God's sake. It's Pune today; it can be very well your city tomorrow. It's German Bakery today; it can be your regular cafeteria tomorrow. 

The question is 'who'. The question is no more 'why'.

I can't complain against the terrorists. I have a complaint against nature and destiny. Anindyee and Ankik. Who is nature trying to teach a lesson? Why don't fate and life and nature change their ways? We all know the black from white and the grays. Why can't there just be justice? Why do we still need to figure out and live with the warped ways of destiny?

And I don't freaking care about the Indo-Pak talks and whatever such crap there is. The pigs won't stop. I know. And I don't mean Pakistan completely or any nation for that matter. Pigs are everywhere. What can we really do? I wish we could build an invisible barbed-wire wall around every city or something...will that help? How do we protect the Anindyees and Ankiks? Build a bomb-proof enclosure around them...around every Anindyee and Ankik residing in India? Or should we locate all the terrorists and kill them? I don't mind that, but will it stop terror yet?

How can terror stop? Will talks stop terror? Or will terror stop terror? Will love...oh what the hell! What, just what will stop terror? Money? What? how? When?

I hate reading about what happened. I hate writing about it, too. I hate the news. I hate the post-mortems. Should we make noise about it or not? Every-time anything like this happens, I feel shackled. What can I really do? 

What pleases terrorists? The fact that they killed innocent people or the provocation stirred up post such killings? What pleases them? The deaths really, or the commotion? The destruction of furnitures and flesh or the destruction of people's routines? What if we never wrote or published the post-effects of such events, such that they never reached the terrorists? What if they never happened to know about the impact of what they did? Would that help? But that would be unfair, right? Ohhh! Just what can I do? What can we do?

There's one bakery today that won't bake red velvet cupcakes for Valentine's Day today.

Thanks for your book request...ha ha, hubby was reading it and just finished it this morning. I read it in high school.

Any other suggestions?

On another note I think it will be a long time before people come to their senses about the value of life and the beauty of humanity. Thanks for sharing.

German bakery has been a part of countless beautiful ive spent in pune, there is no reason why i wouldnt be there had i been in the city that day.

It's a nightmare to wipe out like this......As for the hole in wall....there was a pic from WW2,a lady crying against a war torn structure,similar hole in the wall....nothing left to say

This is such a complicated topic and I love how you expressed your opinions in the post. I think a lot of it has to do with politics and the usual money and power crap... sad really. BTW thx for visiting my blog :) Mon Mode Blog

more than the dead its the wounded who remind us of the impact the blasts had,,I wish there was a way of propagating the Live And Let Live concept that would penetrate into some thick skulls

Government, historians, philosophers,military intelligence are trying to answer your questions. Having 2 sons just above the 18 potential draft age, i spent agonizing nights over these questions. I lived through September 11th, witnesses people dying, as my showroom is just a few blocks away, lived the aftermath in a segregated area as no one but residents and rescue police fireman were allowed in.My children have lost their teacher, their friend's father. I have spent time in countries such as Burma where civil terrorism is their daily fate. I have visited India and love this remarkably beautiful country.
