'We live in peace, then why these blasts?'

"Yeh Jaipur main kya ho gaya? (What just happened in Jaipur)� was the first question came to my mind when I heard about bomb blasts," says Anil Agrawal, industrialist and a resident of Jaipur.
Agrawal lost one of his relatives in the serial blasts.
"One should not be surprised if the blast casualties reached near 100," he says.
"Aise blasts honge, aisa to kabhi socha nahin tha (we never thought such blasts would happen). We are completely stumped; Jaipur is booming with development and business. Jaipur is so peaceful that we return home at midnight without fear.
The industrialist points out, "More than 12 years ago, Jaipur had witnessed communal riots. But we never thought there was any tension between Hindus and Muslims. We all live in harmony.""We will continue living in harmony even after bomb blasts because Muslims are good people and we do a lot of business with them," he adds.
