Disaster Management

Almost every Indian city is vulnerable to man made and natural disasters. Some of the man made disasters are bomb blast, terrorist attack / naxalite attacks while natural calamities like floods  in Bihar, Bengal and Mumbai in recent years and earthquakes in Kashmir, Gujarat. Storms / Tsunami in various coastal regions have left big impact on the mind & strength of nation. Although the whole nation stands united during the hour of crisis but the lack of disaster management, shortage of equipments & infrastructure and non-co-ordination between various government agencies because of lazy attitude of government workers led to the loss of life and assets on very large scale. Some of the disasters left never ending marks on social life.Some important points which needs to be analyzed are as follows :

  • In case of earthquake at Gujarat I read and listen that debris removing equipments (which are human friendly and modern) of International Community are very much better in comparison to Indian equipments.

  • In case of Tsunami USA has better warning systems with them.

  • After WTC attacks USA made its security system very strong and saved / failed further terrorist attacks.

Many more disasters could have been stopped if government is alerted. Actually we don't have proper policies and system which are required during crisis hour. Generally Army is called in case of natural calamities which should be the last option but it seems that it is the only option with authorities.
Almost all of our metro cities has high rise buildings (group housings/corporate offices/malls)  and mostly all of them constructed after approvals of various government agencies but in case of any mis-happenings like (fire/bomb blast/ earthquake/flood/etc.) in these buildings do the district administration have complete infrastructure/equipment to deal with this problem. Like case of Fire at IOC in Jaipur all safety measures failed and even central government is not successful to stop fire. Personally I knows that once the approval from concerned authority is taken most of the safety measures dies due to lack of maintenance. A regular monitoring/inspection system of safety measures should be in place so that we can reduce the chances of any disaster. It must be made sure that inspection is not only a formality which gets completed because of corruption means enforcement of law should goes in strict manner.

On last Friday & Saturday serial bomb blasts taken place in two of our known cities i.e. Bangalore and Ahmedabad and killed around 100 peoples. It shows that terrorist have spread their wings in whole India. They sent threatening email and challenges internal security of India. All the bomb blasts have been done in a planned way and crossing every limit of humanity. If terrorist organizations are working for some good demand then they must not have planted the bombs near hospitals. If they want to show their presence they should follow the method taken by Indian freedom fighters like Bhagat Singh, who used the bombs to present his demand without killing a single human. Even Gandhiji called back one of his andolan/movement because of violence has taken place during that andolan/movement. The action of Bhagat Singh & Gandhiji clearly shows that they peoples are working for some genuine reason. But these terrorist groups are not working on any genuine thinking they are just killing peoples and they do not have any humanism. They try to kill more and more peoples to create fear in society. They say that India is weak and they are brave then they should come in open and fight from front why they hide like a mouse after doing their activities.

At this tough time we should all come together and fight with bravery against these bad powers. It is the duty of every citizen to remain alert and provide support to government agencies. We should not think only Law enforcement agency, government have to play the complete role and it is only their duty to stop all these activities. It is the duty of every individual to report the any suspicious activity/person happening around him/her to police immediately.

I would like to appreciate the alertness of Surat citizens who informed the police about two suspicious cars containing bombs. If every one of us will show alertness we will not only save many lives but also able to defeat Terrorism.
