Bhopal Gas Tragedy verdict

Why is it that we take terrorism so lightly? Be it terrorism from outside or the corporate terrorism in our country. For what else will you call the mass death of 1984 in Bhopal? Criminal negligence which lead to thousands of death and is still affecting the new born babies.
But the cost of lives in India is very less. We have become immune to deaths and destruction. We look at tragedy shake our head and move on.
25 years ago lives of thousands of people got affected. The entire city turned in to graveyard and the people responsible for it have walked out free today.
To begin with – Why did the case drag on for 25 years. Why was justice not speedy. Why was the UCIlL chairman allowed to fly back to New York.
Sadly these questions will never be answered. Some victims with simmering anger will go back to court. The case will drag on for another few years, no real justice will come out of it. And meanwhile another tragedy will strike, another set of people will die.
We will read the headlines, shake our heads and move on…..
