The effect of a Bomb Scare!

4 Aug

Yesterday I was planning a trip to Chandni Chowk… well its just another matter that I did not go… Well wait.. its not just another matter anymore… All of us are constantly living a FEAR LESS life. We get out of our house and are sure we will return safe back home in the evening. Atleast I always leave my house with the keys in my bag and a hope to return home. This was until yesterday.

Well the new face of terrorism ‘The Indian Mujahideen’ … made me stay at home yesterday. Apparently there was a bomb scare in Delhi… and Chandni Chowk is a vulnerable area… but that is not the reason of this post, as I am writing this a day and a half later. I thought and thought. I am worried about these guys who are spreading the terror… Its ironical that they don’t understand the repercussions of the so called Scares that they are spreading around. Allow me to explain.

1. If one of the shopping freaks can stay at home cos of a bomb scare. I bet there were a hundred others… The cause and effect is that there are lesser people in the market to SCARE!

2. Well, I did not go to Chandni Chowk but I went to The Great India Place in Noida. Thousand of people were there at a single given point of time. Even if a 10% were the kind of people like me who traded good old India way of shopping with Malling, they probably ended up spending more. Let me explain the macro economic point of view. I pay Rs. 50/- for a cup of coffee worth Rs.10/- which ensures higher margins for the shop keepers. Thus allowing him to plough back more money into his business. Therefore expansion happens. More growth. You see the Sensex as a proof :). But for RBI, the sensex has been positive all week.(E&OE)

3. Suppose, 1000 people succumbed to the scare. 10% went to TGIP. 90% stayed back home. Whoa ..! this means less spending on Oil and makes a for more healthy economy with less dependence on OIL. You see the point.

Thus their gameplan backfires on them. Directly and Indirectly. If they are caught ever, they will PAY for doing this good to the country.

And, to finally prove the point that I remain Fear Less, I went on a shopping spree at Lajpat Nagar the very next day.

    Kaisa dimag paya hai re tumne! Maan gaye 🙂
    Bomb scares helping the economy? Mind Blowing!
    Yeah sure. Terrorists perform such acts that their gameplan is bound to backfire. Picture Mumbai blasts – people were back to work the next day. Bangalore and Ahmadabad – back again. Was anybody terrorized? NO.
    These people can only damage life and property. But NEVER the courage of people.
    (Pity you didn’t go to Chandni Chowk that day!)

    4. Because of this scare, Boy friends and Husbands get some more reason to explain how risky it is to go outside and sit in home and relax – sipping a coke and watching cricket game …;)

    5. Because of this scare – people have stopped buying bicycles and upgrading to bikes and cars – so they take loan and then default as they dont have monies – and ultimately end up paying twice the amount of vehicle – thus contributing more to India’s GDP

    Funny post !…you continue to charm us with your maverick pun!…Hail ThinkingAxe!
