After a good long peaceful period with no untoward incidences anywhere in the country, the forces working against the integrity of the country have struck again. Jaiput has been rocked, and 60 people have been killed.
This time the target has been a peaceful tier-2 city and a major tourist destination. It was only a few months back that I had wandered in the same lanes of the city with no fear or anxiety of anykind. And were I to go there tomorrow, I am sure I would go again with same mood and not heeding to forces that try to fill insecurity in our minds.
I appeal all those travelling to Rajasthan not to heed to this act of terrorism and not allow them to penetrate into your minds. A call to a friend in Jaipur today confirmed that everything is peaceful, though there is a short curfew introduced as a precautionary measure.
