Blasts in Jaipur
Our email inboxes were filling up with “Are you Ok?” emails after the bomb blasts in Jaipur. We are both fine, we were nowhere near Jaipur. Although it is rather eerie to see the debris in areas that we were walking through just a few weeks ago.
The old city of Jaipur is filled with people selling things and going about their business – it’s constantly crowded, so the idea of blasts going off there is horrible. Evidently, the Hanuman Temple complex was also targeted, which adds enormously to the ever present tensions between Muslims and Hindus.
