Jaipur tragedy: How we can help

Woke up with the news of the Jaipur blasts. Already shocked with the unpredictability of life in circumstances like these, I was appalled at how news channels carried the news, more interested in soliciting comments and video clips from the general public than helping them with helpline numbers and other information. Not that I have seen this the first time. Does the Fourth Estate need a monitoring eye? Probably yes. Let us not get carried away in a different direction, far away from our sense of humanity.

Here are the helpline numbers to help you get information about the deceased and the injured:
  • 0141–2574456
  • 0141-2560291
  • 0141-2619827

The injured need blood urgently. Please rush to the Sawai Madho Singh (SMS) Hospital, if you are in Jaipur, to donate your blood.

Let this news not be just another audio and visual piece while you have your breakfast. Let's do what we can.
