We are paying the price for the loopholes ingrained in our system!   Leave a comment


Horrendous scenes of the Volvo A/c sleeper coach bus (of Jabbar Travels, a private bus operating service) fire accident near Kothakota in Mahabubnagar District in Telangana. The ill fated bus was going from Bangalore to Hyderabad. It caught fire by hitting against a culvert while overtaking a car. This happened in pre-dawn hours of today. The fire totally engulfed the bus and almost all (45 in total, including a small girl child who clung herself to her mother till the final moment. The charred remains of both of them are still inseparable. Many of the dead were in their prime youth looking forward to meet their dear ones and enjoy the festival of lights together!) the passengers (who were in their deep sleep and were dreaming of a bright and colorful Deepavali to be celebrated at home with family and friends) barring a few (7, including the driver and his assistant, who were sitting in the front cabin and jumped out to their safety, leaving those sitting behind them to their ill fate!) charred to death beyond recognition. There was a young man, a budding engineer fresh from his college, in the deceased who got selected for a top notch multinational software company in Bangalore with a very handsome salary, and was going home to share the greatest happiness of his life with his uneducated parents who had been waiting for a new dawn in their dry and dispassionate lives. This is the heavy price we the public are paying for the systemic loopholes in our system. As per some reports, the operators have not renewed the permit for the bus since 2011. Our depraved political system, misgovernance, official apathy, corruption and bribery are the root causes of all our woes. Today it’s they, tomorrow it may be you and me! Time to put some serious thought and action!!
