Again Delhi was hit by bombs
Again people died
Again frantic calls went out checking for friends' & family's safety
Again those bastards have gotten away with it
Again our cops could do jack shit about it
Again our ministers read from speeches that were the same as last time
Again our news channels have gone hyper about it
Again we're glued to the idiot box watching blood & gore
Again these blasts will be forgotten soon

Will there be more blasts again?

It definitely does seem like it.

What could we do?

1. Remain vigilant and report suspicious objects/persons at once.

2. Use tools like the Right to Information (RTI) Act to find out about the measures being taken by the administration to improve security, besides publicising security lapses when we come across any.

3. Stop voting for parties that incite, promote and/or actually organise communal violence in the form of riots, so that there is no incentive for these parties to organise such violence in the future. That can, in turn, prevent terrorists from getting local support in the name of extracting 'revenge' for the communal riots.

4. Campaign for the perpetrators of communal riots/bomb-blasts to be brought to justice at the earliest possible, so that, once again, the number of local recruits available to terrorist organisations can be reduced.
