Numerologist predicted New Delhi attacks—and what it means 

Chris Macrae’s earlier posts here about and , and the need to help nations, rather than examine their borders, struck a chord this weekend with the attacks in New Delhi. To me, these illustrate how little progress we’ve made as a planet—and the attacks were by a two days after July 7.
   I am usually sceptical of people who claim to have made predictions after the fact, but there it is on Johnnie Moore’s blog comments: a numerologist, Romesh Narayan Chaudhary, stating New Delhi would be next. Might be a fluke; might not be.
   However, the point remains very clear: we should condemn these attacks just as loudly as the ones on New York and London (current news shows that they aren’t, although a lot of people have been affected, which illustrates a first-world ). And it is up to the that use the subcontinent as a manufacturing or service base to help people there right now. The more we show that the world can unite to help our fellow beings, the more futile terrorism becomes. Right now, we are showing the same old divisions. In the western world, are still communicating that India is “far away”—and we are divided by borders and distance when the reality (to wit, ) shows otherwise.
Johnnie Moore reminds me that Sharm-el-Sheikh and Bali were next, not New Delhi. Mind you, I still feel Romesh was on to something.  
Not much about the New Delhi bombings on New Zealand television now, and we are supposedly in the eastern hemisphere. How quickly it has become irrelevant, while London remained major news for days.
