Only Dog Walkers post 7/11

It has been six years; enough time to replace the ones who unfortunately left us due to the 7/11 train blasts, maybe not. The ones, who have left us, won't be forgotten and the toddlers born on that day will have learnt how to walk, talk and would ha
Two victims are still fighting for their lives; their names may be forgotten but we can be assured that the Railways have put aside enough money for their treatment. However, keeping them alive or giving the family of the deceased, job security; in no way satisfies, the phrase used often that prevention is better than cure.
On Tuesday, the RPF promised, the fulfillment of an earlier promise, to equip railway stations with bulletproof zones, armed personnel and many CCTV’s. But till now there are only a few personnel on major stations and the Dog walkers. A hint, signaling the coming of the Dog Squad, is when you hear the barking of the resident stray dogs; followed by a handsome German Sheppard walking by with his grey costumed master.
The other security appliances, it seems, are still to percolate through the “red tape filter “. But we at MTV think that there is a reason behind such flippancy. Even Rahul Gandhi stated that all the terror attacks cannot be stopped though 99 percent is stopped due to vigilance and intelligence and the aim is to achieve a 100 percent result; this was said by him after the 13/7 blasts in Mumbai. Surely, the government treats terrorist attacks as a miscommunication of our intelligence forces.
Nevertheless, until that “100%” is not achieved we need more than just dog walkers.
