So, just how safe is India?

The first thing your morning newspaper greets you with is a tainted picture of how India today actually is.

Maoists attacks. Train hijacks & Dacoit loots. Public feud between pilots and air hostesses. Fire mishaps at petroleum depot. Alarming rate of train accidents.

Political vendetta. Family business feuds turning into horrifying tales. Unchecked crime rates that seem to indicate a growing tendency towards lack of remorse.

And a Government that seems to be struggling to save its face amidst all this.

Even as the Government and allies debate and strategize on how to up the country’s security measures in the aftermath of terror attacks and threats, what we need to really first ask ourselves is – how safe is India anymore from within?

Multilingual web address system approved

SEOUL (AFP) – A global regulatory body Friday approved a new multilingual address system which it said would open up the Internet to millions more people worldwide.
