Diwali Greetings: Delhi under terror

A series of ghastly terrorist attacks struck New Delhi on the eve of Diwali - 50 people are being reported dead in 3 serial blasts at different spots. Yet another mindless violent massacre. Red Alert has been declared all over the city and parts of the country. Doordarshan always seems to skew reports, projecting a lower death toll; 50 would probably translate to more than 100 dead. Officials have not yet confirmed terrorist atacks. Police should have tightened the security settings during the festival season - terrorists managed to do this at this time, speaks something about the lapse of intelligence gathering. News videos of dead bodies of kids and others looks gruesome and very very depressing, especially when it was supposed to have been a joyous Diwali.
Bombs were diffused in some other areas of Delhi too, such as Chandni Chowk etc I believe.

Currently reading 'The Art of Innovation' by the general manager of IDEO the famous design firm.

Gives insight into the general approach of observing and innovating through brainstorms etc that they apply in their firm for product/industrial design ... A good book that helps fathom, how to design better and more user friendly products. Still reading it.
