Lahore is Struck. Again.

I read about this late last night and the effect of it is hitting me just now as my day starts.

Much of Lahore might still be unaware of the series of [now updated, I referred to this as triple suicide blasts in the original posts, when I can now not clearly confirm that] suicide blasts that rocked one of the most spiritual sites in the city, the Data Darbar. I was actually planning to go there next Thursday with some friends to listen to some Qawwalis. Not sure if that’s happening any time soon.

Going to work and not sure how many people I’ll run into. Many might just stay home, but then again, this is now ‘normal’.
