Meanwhile, with tears in their eyes and praying to god with fingers crossed, relatives of the passengers thronging the airports in Malaysia and Beijing are still waiting with the hope that they will be back soon. The same is the story of the family members of the five Indians who were on the board. And yet, there seems to be no good news in the air.
Ironically, Chinese media is blaming the Malaysian authorities "for security lapse and slow response" in locating the aircraft's wreckage. There have been no wrong leads of the possible detection in the aircraft's rubble in some parts of the international media. Surely, on an as serious and sensitive as this, with hundreds of human lives involved, and no tangible information and leads in the horizon, perhaps, the media response should be cautious.
Even when international search across the ocean and vast tracts of land goes on, there are lessons to be learnt from the mystery of the missing plane. India, for instance, has seen terror attacks, bomb blasts, natural calamities, big accidents and disasters in various parts of the country.
Surely, no terror links have been established in the airplanes disappearance as yet, India, and all nations of the world, should beware, be extra cautious and fully prepared in terms of all forms of travel across the globe.
