Peddling terror

The fragile calm that descended so fleetingly upon our society has once again been shattered with yet another instance of mindless violence. Innocent and unwary lives were lost and damaged. For the family of the victims and the victims themselves, what will hurt more in the years to come is the psychological trauma more than the physical pain- just what the perpetrator(s) had intended. This is not the first, and however hard we would like to wish it away, it would not be the last. If anyone cared to have a closer look, one would definitely find that there is an instance of violence or intimidation involving explosives almost every other day. The spontaneous outpourings of protests and objections to such incidents from various sections of the society which is bringing the state to a grinding halt this very day is definitely an indication of the increasing level of frustrations and intolerance to such wanton acts of terror in the state. In all probability, as had happened in the past time and again, a few individuals might lay claim to the incident. The excuse of an explanation would invariably emphasis the need to implement a social order based on our customary laws, of reclaiming our lost pride and dominance, and the need to assert supremacy of our indigenous inhabitants. There is also a very real possibility that the particular incident and the identity as well as the intentions will remain shrouded in mystery, as had also witnessed many a times in the past. And in all these increasingly frequent undesirable happenings, what has been intriguing the minds of the public is the actual working of the law and order mechanism in the state, as well as the basis of the claims by the government of having succeded in curbing violence and terrorism in Manipur. Elaborate plans have been declared, and if the declaration of the government is anything to go by, such incidents should not have been repeated, or the perpetrators brought to justice. The ground reality, unfortunately, remains anything but optimistic. Amidst all the confusion and speculations, one thing is certain though- that the perpetrator(s) of such heinous crimes stands to gain from the fear, uncertainty, confusion and intimidation so created. It/they prey on the insecurities of others and shuns progress and development. Personal gratification remains the highest goal and such beings posses neither any moral obligation nor social responsibilities, yet have no scruples in maiming or killing others and destroying lives to get their ends. The continuing disturbing trend points to the undeniable fact that such human parasites have the resources, means and audacity to carry out their evil designs almost at will, but then, it is becoming increasingly clear that the common people who are, more often than not, at the receiving end of such wanton acts of violence and terrorism, have had enough and will not tolerate any disruptions. The disgruntled public is about to have the final say.
