Hyderabad has bounced back, as our news channels and papers remind us. But, the eerie sense of unease that follows a tragedy of this scale, hangs over the city like a dark cloud. Public places are best avoided feel most people, telling their children not to frequent local hotspots. How could the police not screen visitors at the Lumbini Park after a warning from central Intelligence that another round of blasts could take place? Why was the security of the park given to a private agency, which had no screening mechanism in place? These are questions Hyderabadis are asking, knowing what answers to expect from politicians.
We have a low-key raksha bandhan today, marred by the grim background of death and suffering of innocent victims.
