Eid Holiday Blues

I feel Good! that's how I felt when I drove my car to the office this morning.
After ten days of Eid holidays, I have every reason to feel good inside and out.

However, I am very sad that many people do not share the same feeling as I do in spending the holidays. As matter of fact many people are now in deep grievance due to the death of 576 people, 637 people badly injured and 1,397 lightly injured. For detailed media report on this matter, please click here.

According to the Minister of Communication the death and injuries are mostly caused by transportation accidents, and the number of death has decreased to 50% compared to last year.

Considering the above, I felt that actually the deathly accidents can be avoided or at least be minimized if the transportation and traffic authorities have been more strict in imposing the safety regulations. But the most important is that the travellers should pay very careful attention to their own safety i.e. by making sure that all safety requirements have been met before they start traveling.

I did feel the same when i was first on the way to my office last thursday. You know, it was really unlike my city it always is. Streets were so loose, cars were really countable. What an eid holiday romance. And then it all ended yesterday, the first monday, as we all got back to the real world again... :-)

Oops not to say the horrible accidents. It was really sad to see such a tragedy happen on the happy moment. So always remember and pray to Allah...

Edwin,
Many people say that normal life would return next Monday.
Let us hope that each and everyone of us will learn from the terrible accidents so that they would not happen again in the future.
