London in Chaos

It was just yesterday that i had blogged abt the effectiveness of the public transport in London, and today i was planning to share with you the joy of the London2012 victory. But it has been overshadowed by the attack here.

I am working from home for the last one month, and this morning my flatmates and neighborhood friends started their journey to work. Then came this news, that the Tube between Aldgate and Liverpoolstreet had a power surge resulting in an explosion. The London transport has been suspended.

As soon as it was identified as a co-ordinated attack, the whole central london was sealed off. Buses travelling into the city were halted. On Tv, the scene of the bus [i think it is 205, which i used to take] ripped and raped got my heart out. Goodness..

It is painful. It really puzzles me...Why? Why does somebody need to do this.. What is it going to achieve?? Killing innocent people going to work in the morning, will drive whatt????

Sarve bhavanthu sukhinaha. Sarve santhu niramayaaha.

I guess the only solution to these problem is to think how you think "Aham brahmasmi". I believe this will never prompt anyone to make mistakes.

Thanks. All known faces are safe here.
And 7/7, though has created a panic and the first attack by islamic fundamentalists on main land Britain, goodness that it is much less disastrous when compared to their earlier outing in US.

Sure, Londoners have got the strong nerve. Business was as usual just 3/4 hrs after the blasts.
Though all thots and prayers were with the victims everybody have taken it in their bold stride.
