I have no words to say for the terrorists who perpetrated these blasts. Only a deep rage wells within me.

I hope no one here suffered in direct or indirect way from the blasts.


Hold your loved ones close, you never know what will happen when these days.

Just returned from my office in Bandra (E). Took roughly an hour and 40 mins. Things look really bad. Western Railway has come to a halt. Traffic jams prevail everywhere. Rain has added to the confusion. Telephones (both landlines and ceelular) were off for a while.

Just drove from Mumbai yesterday morning in some tension, due to the Shiv Sena fracas. Now this. What is Mumbai coming to? If someone throws mud at a statue, is that reason enough to burn a bus, block trains, etc.? Wonder if that incident is related to the present bombings. Unable to contact my people in Sion, hope they are safe.

I donno how long we have to put up with these inhumane incidents.

i donno when the govt starts having a clear policy on punishing people responsible for such acts.

Wish the affected get the strength to deal with this.

Fellow Indians in Mumbai,

Pl let us know if any help is required - we are concerned for you.

I hope those who perpetrated this crime die a slow, public and very painful death.
