Bangalore Blasts...

City witnessed eight small bombs exploded in quick succession across city of Bangalore on Friday noon in a span of 30 minutes, killing a woman and wounding at least 15 people. Heavy congestion was seen on roads as people started rushing to their homes from work. Telephone networks jammed as relatives from other parts of country started calling Bangaloreans to check whereabouts and safety of their keens...

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear this.
Do you have an idea to the source? I have heard the Maoist are making problems in India. ( recently from Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Seattle), also I have a young friend in Nepal, who says they are causing trouble there.
Sri Sri said they don't know what they are for, only what they are against.
I think their lives would improve to be for something good.

So worried to hear of this news. Hope it would stop. The sad part is its harming lotsa innocent people.

I am hoping to visit India in Sept. My plan includes Bangalore. Hope this violent act would stop.

Rajesh,

You and TOI have done a cyclic factor. They have printed your pic on their Page 2. Below is the link :

What a terrible headline. It certainly makes our earthquake here in Los Angeles a minor affair.
