A blast in Bangalore! I mean how can we have a blast here?
Already we have no electricity, no petrol, no diesel, no infrastucture, no pavements to drive on (yeah, we drive on pavements, for the lack of space elsewhere), no rains, no metro , not even a proper name to call the city - "bangalore? bengalooru? bengaluroo? what??"... and now, of all things, we have a blast??? Isnt the city already on its way to ruin by itself that one H-A-D to put in a blast into this concotion as well ?
moi is in a state of denial, and indignation. Tres angry for the blast.
Called up family; no one near the blast site. *whew*; no friends currently in bengalooru so, no immediate shok sabhas to attend.

SMSes and emails pour in hoping Im alright, to everyone reading the blog, I am okay, and hope everyone of you out there is okay.
Incase anyone wants to get in touch with someone in Blore and make sure that they are alright, just put in a comment here with their email/ phone number and I shall try and reach them and post a comment back here stating if they are alright.
Edit 3: Traffic jam rules *sheesh* people try and keep off those places now.
It was a low intensity blast with gelatin sticks being used. but since it was highly populated - lot of injuries I guess.
@ anons - if you dont understand the language used or the meaning of the sentences written, *shrugs* keep your ideas to yourself. thanks.
Edit 4 : latest news says one very near to one of our office campuses!!!! Whoa! another one is slated to go off is the rumor around. I shall put up updates as and when I get it. hang in there guys. Take care everyone.
Edit 5: I sent my team home - better safe than sorry... aint it? for the others, please go home, and please please and for chrissakes please follow traffic rules, I understand its a major jam and chaos out there, but please maintain sanity, calm and traffic rules. Office transport has been suspended and GOK when I can reach home ...
