Blogging / Bombing… which is mightier?

This title was inspired from the adage – “Pen is mightier than the sword”

While I was reading the Guest Editor, Thich Nhat Hanh’s article in Times of India, it reaffirmed my faith in non-violent handling of terrorism by the global community.

No matter, whether these “terrorists” have a genuine grudge to take revenge for or are doing a grave wrong, I think it is important for us to understand the psyche behind these people. Just like how investigators solving a murder case try to understand the killer’s mental state of mind as also retravce the killer’s logic behind his/her actions… so is there a need for us to understand what goes on in a “terrorist” mind.

Am sure it would help us demystify his/her actions… thereby preventing a repeat action of terrorism and if we are fortunate enough, get these people in the mainstream society and reform them to become ambassadors of non-terrorism. See the potential there… just like how corporates hire professional hackers to ensure their system security, so can we hire these “reformed” terrorists to tackle terrorism.

Anyways, leaving aside my expert inputs on this sensitive topic… the main point I have been wanting to say is that there are different number of more “effective” ways which we can use to get ourselves heard… For instance, blogging – I have been at it for the last two years and this has given me a platform to speak out on whatever comes within my grey radar… and yes, it has also helped others question / answer my thoughts / views on varied subjects. Perhaps, if one were to make blogging more focused on a particular issue, it could possibly be the best medium to reach out to everyone.

Gone are the days of “Pen is mightier than the sword”… here comes the new one, “Blogging is mightier than bombing“!
