New Delhi: There was a terrorist bombing in Delhi’s High Court yesterday. Thirteen were killed and over eighty injured. Apparently there had been an attempted bombing in the same place on May 25th, 2011. Tragically, the necessary preventative measures were not put in place after this close call. I wonder what is the point of these blasts. There have been arrests made, and some email communications were discovered but have not been published to the media. The people killed were not high-level judges or politicians but civilians visiting the court for routine legal proceedings. I can better understand evil deeds that are motivated by greed, or even hate. This seems bafflingly mindless.
Planet Earth, 11:30 pm: Last night there was an earthquake! It only lasted a few seconds, but was registered about a 6.5 on the Richter scale. I kept waiting for another wave of shock, but it never came. There was no reported damage in the city. I marvel at how everything in the world is constantly moving, changing, even the massive rock of tectonic plates.
