Firey Fare...!!

Yesterday was a Bloody Monday in the history of Meerut, the city of Uttar Pradesh, where I live!
If you are from India, you must be aware by now, what damage that fire has caused to the people!!

medium_meerut1.jpgA four day long consumer fare was being setup in the Victoria Park, situated in the centre of the city, yesterday was the last day, only two hours were left for the closing ceremony, then the disaster struck! A small spark caused by the short circuiting of the wires set the whole covering of the fare, which was made of the synthetic material, on fire! And just 5 minutes later, it was all over...

Those who were lucky enough managed to escape, but the remaining ones were burnt to death!

I feel like a complete blank. Eh. I haven't gotten anything done these days. More or less nothing seems worth bothering with. Not much on my mind lately. Shrug.
