Extremists Never Learn

The serial blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad, including the one in the trauma center, has brought the focus back on Terrorism. Never before has a medical facility been targetted. The cold-bloodedness in these attacks is increasing. It is unfortunate that these organizations think that they have a right to end so many lives and traumatize countless other people who are not directly affected by these incidents. The dreams that end with these attacks are countless and priceless.

However, extremists fail to realize that they have never been successful in this. People always bounce back. No market has ever been shut down because of this, no place has ever been boycotted. People still tour Kashmir at the slightest indication of peace there and they will keep doing that. So what are these Organizations trying to accomplish by these terror acts especially since they do not have even one success story to boast of in the past?

Markets are still crowded near Diwali. People still go to movie halls. In fact, the number of people doing so has increased. I think it is high time the extremists should realize that they are fighting a lost battle and they will never succeed in breaking peoples' spirits.

My heart goes out to those whose lives have been brutally cut short because of the extremists' need to attract some attention. And I pray for those who have lost their loved ones in these bomb blasts. I know you have not and will never give up on life. This is the only way to show these terrorists what big failures they are in their lives.

People are born brave and they will not change.
