    Default Terrorist Attacks- Can We Do Something About It

    Hi

    I was taking to one of my friend on phone and he just said something which i want to post here to get some input from all of you.

    My friend asked me a very deep question and said something which really turned my mind in a strange way, i am confused and need all of you to think about it.

    We always keep on cribbing about politicians and terrorist and what we are doing, we are just talking about it, apart from talking is there anything else which we can do or is there any way by which we can help our nation. Me and my friends are already engaged in some social activities and want to do something in this direction too. I am not talking about anything like we should go there to donate some money, food, clothes etc. but want to do something about the people and terrorists too, something which can help in a different way
    We have some money to go there and to work on this and we really don't want to make it chandaa collection thing so need to manage everything with our own money only without asking any help from others or any NGO.

    If you have any idea then please post here.

    Trust me i will be more than thankful to you and honesty that is contribution to society coz i am sure that i will go there and will make it real.

    Thanks

    Nice post smoothy, but i really don't know if we can do anything, or whether it will make a difference!

    I think countries should come together and fight terrorism!

    Let me take care of my family first,then I will think about others/nation.
    I may look selfish....but can't help it.

    NSG commandos are in Mumbai. Most of them must be North Indians. Where is Raj Thackery. Why isn't Raj Thackery opposing them. Why aren't MNS workers driving away the North Indian NSG commandos....

    Ditto sirjeee,
    there is only one way to fight terrorism, find em and kill em. But it looks cooler in films than in real life. There is no other way for fighting terrorism for a common man, i m not aware of any other. So the best we can do now is take care of our family and wait for another 2/3/4 months for the next attack to happen.
    By the way, it has always intrigued me, if they are so efficient that they can enter any place and kill any number of population,....... why cant they successfully blow up a full-parliament.
    Just a thought.

    Thats the reason we also need to depend on killing, pal. You cant recite tagore at a person running towards you with a knife, and expect to charm him outta his crazed mind.
    You have to whip out a hand-gun so that he changes his mind and direction.
    thats the way human mind works, neither u nor me can change this.I dont like mindless killing either.

    lets kill the political machinery tear the nation in 1000 parts and burn the concept of nationalism. burn boundaries. or lets just tell terrorists to blast the entire world if that can make anything better. Lets accept each of us is a failure who thinks about nation only when there is a terrorist attack, there is an election or a cricket match and cant settle internal discrimination when there is none of the above . north Indians and south Indians find each other hostile , Muslims and Hindus are not comfortable accepting each other ,,some races are joked about every day. this is what we do every day. right from a metro police woman who feels lazy checking bags but not while collecting her salary, to us who are all raged up now but will be fine and complacent one week down the lane we wont have time, all of are scared and looking for excuses to save our skins each one of us. the thing is there is nothing truly substantial that we can do nor have the courage to do anything substantial .

    Let us know what substantial stuff u are thinking about or is possible for a civilian to do to avoid such incidents ............
    A country is made up of millions of people and a little LAZINESS from one of them can land the whole mass in risk. So its utterly unjustified for the entire mass to be declared lazy and afraid.
    On the other hand, the fuel of passion for the population should and must come from its leaders. If they are not upto that task and instead busy whipping up petty inside conflicts for their wee benifits, IS IT WRONG TO BLAME THEM OR CALL THEM B**L-less SONS of BITC**S ????????

    you know what evander... when i said none of us have the courage and that we all look for excuses i meant exactly this .i want my family and friends to be safe right now that's it. We can praise movies like RDB and say it should hapen in real and when time comes to do it in real we say these things look better in films . ofcourse they look better in films because we are not as heroic. we are not willing to risk our lives..neither me nor you. none of us would go shoot our defence minister right now. i dont even know if one should do it and why should any one do it at all. I dont know what "NATION" we talk about! what unity!! we are not united is the fact. i spoker about how hostile we are internally towards each other- north south divide, hindu muslim divide, sardaar -bihari- racism. we are too fragile becasue we are not united. i dont know how can such a vast nation BE united????
    Dictatorship?? what about human rights then?? BUt what ARE We doing with the freedom that democracy provides us apart from helping ourselves and our families and fighting about petty things? what are we doing with the freedom??

    if dictorship is not the answer and freedom is abused by us all whats the solution??.THE only solution i feel is each one of us chuck the idea of nationality or community or state and think about humanity and one's responsibilities as a individual . If we are not responsible we ll all end up killing each other up. but like most people will agree this is very idealistic and not practical!! so are we left with any solutions at all??? i guess not !! so?? so we just st and watch whats happening?? i guess we have no other options!! shuck!! how cowardly those words sound. srry i am drifting towars existentialism..there is a predicament we can do nothing help nothing live die as predicated. thats it. we deserve it unless we do something meaningful with our deaths. who has the courage ? not me.

    We may not have the courage to handle situations like this, but that does'nt mean there's no hope at all.

    Have a look at this

    hi prouser.. no this is not what i would like to define as hope..this would die down - this entire attack will be over. buried in history pages till another such attack happens. no thats not hope.

    thanks for valuable discussion mate's but over here we are not talking about killing anyone, we are not talking about political parties, we are not talking about any cross border terrorist activities or camps.
    My basic issues is: what can we do about it. most of you guys said there is nothing we can do about it but i am sorry to say that there are lot many things to do. I had a discussion with few of my friends today which seems like get a way very soon.

    As icrave said Unity is something which we need, may be now its the time to change name of our nation to United Nations of India or anything coz there are lot many people like Raj thaakrey and all who want a different identity, i am not sure where they are not and what they are doing and i really don't think that its the correct time to talk about them.

    I am sorry Leo i don't agree with your point of killing anyone, as i said we need to do something and when i said we i meant that we common people of India who work in a different way We means a few of my friends (just like me) who work in some IT firms, Event n Ad firms, Fashion Designer and all common people. We can not think about going to any other country to perform such stunts like killing. Apart from that killing is something which we can not do coz we are talking about the Peace not War.

    May be according to other people and our own BJP its time to get into enemy bunker to kill them all but that is not the resolution.

    I dont have a huge knack for knocking people down.
    What I said had a different meaning, which I will explain someplace else and not here.
    Yeah, I am also waiting to know what can be done .......

    i am not saying what can be done and right now i am not in a correct position to say anything like that. I am working on it with few of my friends and i am sure will come up with something good.

    As you said icrave it would be buried in history pages so i agree with you that it would be but not from our books and it is not just about this single attack it is about the whole situation about the lives which we lost in this attack about all the people who died in this attack. We can not do anything about the people who already died but for sure we can do something for the survivors of the attack for the families of the people who died in this attack.
    I know we can not go to fight against terrorists and that is not any idea so its not worth talking about it here.

    If you have any suggestion then please come up with that.

    What can we do about it? What can we do about it? What can we do about it?

    Follow constant vigilance at ALL times
    • Keep observing people around you, especially in public places, for suspicious activities movements.
    • Report on suspiciously parked vehicles, abandoned parcels, etc. to police.
    • Start a neighbourhood watch scheme.
    • If you know of apartment/house hires to people of unknown origin, report to police. It is mandatory for landlords to report let-outs to police. You also have a right to know who are the tenants, especially in your society.
    • We have nearly 1.2b people. No amount of police, commandos, guards will be enough. Police depend upon information provides by people. Come forth.
