Pune Bomb Blast and Talks with Pak

I have mixed feelings on this subject. While the terrorist attack (yet another) has left me furious, I couldn't understand why does the Government want to continue with talks with Pakistan. In my opinion, the talks with Pakistan would not yield anything.

But the more I am thinking about this, the more I am getting confused or double minded. It's very easy for anyone (including BJP, SS or non-UPA parties) to ask government for banning the talks with Pak. Everyone knows that even though we stalled these talks, nothing is going to change. People who are responsible for terrorist attacks on India may not be the ones whom India would be talking to, and even if it is the other way round, what has changed on the ground so that just by talks those people will change their mind and stop attacking us?

On the other side, there's no way left for India but to continue with the talks. Since it is very difficult (almost impossible?) to attack Pak, given it's ties with USA, China, Taliban and Middle East countries. However strong our military may be, in the larger picture, India has very lesser control over what Pak can do. The only thing that we'd gain out of these talks is to earn a good will which could provide us a strong ground in future, if something happens again.

A common man like me is definitely confused and not sure what would work and what would not, and I feel it's the same with government as well. I am not exactly sure if this is something where we can rest back and say let Government do her job OR should citizens' be voicing their concern over the chosen policy of continuing with the talks?

One thing for sure - our internal intelligence needs to get better with every such instance. Considering the fact that we would hardly know about the success of the ATS, the only wish I'd have is that these people keep on improving with every such failure. After all we can't miss the fact that we had 15 months of peace after last such attack...
