The bastards!

By now, the world's woken up to the shocking tragedy that hit Mumbai yesterday. Seven blasts striking at the city's lifeline - the local trains. One of our people was in one of the trains that were blasted:

"I want to share this experience with you all. I was in the train at Mahim in which the bomb exploded. It was a painful moment, and I had a narrow escape thanks to God. I was fortunately travelling in second class. God knows why, otherwise used to travel daily in first class. I saw people jumping from the train and running helter-skelter. I saw nearly 50 people killed because of the bomb and many more were killed when they tried to jump outside and got killed by a fast train coming in from the other direction. I just couldn't believe what was happening. I saw blood everywhere, people without clothes, half-torn mangled bodies, someone's hand, leg, head. It was very painful and horrifying incident which I will never forget in my life.

I just pray and thank for all my best wishers because of whom I have reached home...but many families would be waiting home for their family members. Just wanted to pray for all those who have lost their lives".

This is the latest, and most horrifying of the terror strikes against the city:
In 1993, we had the first series of blasts that rocked the city's major hubs - its stock market building, banks, cinemas, etc.
In December 2002, there was a blast on a BEST bus near Ghatkopar station. Shortly after that, there was an explosion at a McDonald's outlet at one of the Mumbai Central - biggest train stations in the city.
In March 2003, another bomb exploded in one of the local trains at Mulund railway station.
Then in Aug 2003, two bombs exploded at the Gateway of India - one of the city's main tourist attractions, and Zaveri Bazar - the traditional jeweller's street.

And we still soldier on. Today morning the person I quoted above called me up, with some queries about the audit he's working on. God bless him, and the rest of the city...
