Goa and terror

Israel and Russia have told their citizens to avoid visiting Goa as there is a possibility of a terror attack during the New Year Celebrations this year. There have been reports of an Al Qaeda threat too.

With Israel's Counter Terrorism Bureau issuing a "concrete" warning asking its tourists to stay away from Goa this season and the subsequent caution to Russian tourists, Goa's tourism party for the year 2008 could just end in a whimper.

This is India, a place where Birds don't fly, a place where people don't party and a place where foreigners are raped. Our streets are forts and our coast is place where police sleeps.

This could be a hard lesson for the politicians, security and Intelligence agencies of India. As for the people, it's a bad time right now.
