New Delhi, October 31, 2005
" The marketplace, however, is rife with stories of bravery, of heroic acts when strangers came to each other's aid as death leapt at them. In the Paharganj area, the spirit of humanity was witnessed as residents and survivors rushed the wounded to nearby hospitals. "A mother and her toddler died just outside our shop in the attack. They were regular customers," said Vinay Gupta, owner of OP garments, the shop where the blast occurred. With hesitant pluck, shopkeepers have decided to keep their shops open and continue business as usual so that some amount of normalcy could be restored in the city. "Earlier we had planned to down shutters for the day but then we decided against it," said Sunil Kakkar, the president of Paharganj Traders' Union. "We are trying to help the police and the authorities completely in the investigations and have furnished all details about the suspects," added Jaswant Singh, ex-president of the Sarojini Nagar Traders' Union. "I feel as if someone in my family has died," added Singh, echoing the sentiment of Delhiites everywhere. As another busy week begins, Delhi is evidently grieving, but there is grit too in the grief, a desire to rise above callously dished out tragedies. It is a survival instinct currently on display as the city refuses to mope, but moves on.
