Different Jungle of unauthorized Buildings in Chandigarh operates without Fire Extinguishers

Media would now wake up with different story angles after this Surat and Kanpur Fire tragedy


Just once, think of those parents whose young children have lost their lives in this Fire Tragedy. They were there preparing for their future, NO?

But, there is one question which is disturbing me as a parent. Are we as parents; blind or dumb enough to check these primitive security measures in these coaching centres before letting our children study there? Is this not our responsibility too? Why are we so dumb?

19 young children succumbed to this fire tragedy and one more incident of Kanpur continuously made me think that Why such negligence for human life. Coming to Chandigarh Administration, which allowed massive coaching centres to operate in Sector 34 situated old buildings where there is no fire rescue stairs, no fire extinguishers, no safe exit points.

As usual our dear media, who always wake up after the incident to fill up their space, never check on these points before any tragedy. Can’t they write that “Please do not send your wards in these buildings for coaching centres as there is no fire escape”, Have any one of us, seen such story in Daily Nationals or in Local pullouts? Answer is NO.

These children who have lost their lives won’t be coming back. “But, Is Chandigarh awaiting for any such tragedy? ” This question is for Parents, Coaching Centre’s Owners, Media and of course UT Administration.

Wake UP…
