I really hope what we heard outside were not gunshots but fire-crackers in the celebration of the Independence Day of India!!!

Though I did not hear the whole thing – thanks to my new headphones which do a great job of keeping noise out and music in, mum and Pritam heard that and they both are saying that about 8 or 9 sharp bursts of sound – probably gunshots were heard a few minutes ago. I heard the last one, and yes it did sound like a gunshot. Short, sharp; unlike the firecracker noise – loud bang.

Even after this 'analysis' I hope they were just some sort of fire-crackers 🙂

Here's wishing everyone a peaceful Independence Day.

It's 00:20 hours on 15th of August 2004 now… and I'm one of the few people in the town who are awake 🙂 Of course, there's a _tight_ security watch in all public places – especially around the Red Fort in Delhi. There have been news about a planned attack on the fort while the annual Independence Procession goes on… and it's serious because it was not conveyed by somebody, but was cracked by the security forces…

A big *Good Luck* to the people responsible for security. May God Bless India and all it's citizens.
