Mysterious MH370: Will a miracle happen?
Life is precious. What happens when our dear ones go out and do not return to home? Our family gets worried that why they are late? We can feel the anxiety of the relatives and the families of 239 passengers across the nationalities of the Malaysian Airline MH 370 which vanished one hour after when it flew from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing over South China Sea on March 8.
Till this moment, nobody knows what has happened to the aircraft. The Malaysian government has left no stone unturned in its efforts to trace the airplane when it is being helped by several South East Asian countries and the United States. The Indian Navy too is prepared to launch a search in the straits of Malacca on the request of the government at Kuala Lumpur.

The disappearance of the plane remains a mystery, and not even the best of the minds in the aviation circle can crack it. Escaped airplane left many reasons behind it. Was there a sudden and unexpected technical glitch? Was it a terror attack, or a case of hijacking?

So how did the pilots lose control even while not a single alarm call or radar signal was received by the aviation authorities? The possibilities of the terror attack or hijacking was revealed when it was discovered that at least two passengers boarded the jet with stolen passport--one from Italy and other from Austria. However, no terror links have been traced to these two passengers.

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.
