Writing about a city in terror

Terror in Mumbai

Terror in Mumbai

I have lived in Mumbai, and while the city has been under terrorist attack several times, this is the most widespread and brazen attack.

We have friends in Mumbai, and we do not know if all of them are safe.

I am in shock.

  • I am glad you and yours are okay. This was an awful thing. I don’t understand people anymore.

    omg. I read/heard about what’s happening of course but this pic (in colour with blood streaks) suddenly brings it so close.
    Hope all our friends there are safe–& all the strangers there too!

    I’ve stayed in one of the hotels that was attacked, taken trains from the very station in the picture….it feels terribly real, close, and devastating.

    I have been hearing the reports coming in. They sound so terrible. I’m glad you are safe and hope your friends will be.

    All my friends and relatives are fine, thank God. I can’t tear myself away from the TV tho, and the carnage has left me feeling sad, angry and helpless.
