Why is it that about every month or so a story like this pops up. Not to be overly callous about this but DAMN...

"JODHPUR, India (Sept. 30) - At least 168 people were killed and 100 injured when thousands of pilgrims stampeded Tuesday at a Hindu temple in the historic town of Jodhpur in western India, officials said.
Severe overcrowding apparently caused the crush as more than 12,000 people gathered at the temple to celebrate a Hindu festival, Jodhpur Police Superintendent Malini Agarwal said."

Sadly, I am not overly surprised. I am headed to Pune, India in November - I will take mental note to avoid the festivals.

Well it's been awhile since I've read of a good ol' stampede in India but if you keep the faith another will surely come along...
