Default hope all our tbhp friends in mumbai are well

I trust all of us tbhpians across India and the world will join me in a small prayer for the safety and peace of mind for our fellow members in Mumbai, apart from comfort for all the other people there who are affected by this grave situation.
I pray for peace and resumption of normalcy in this tough time.

Very depressing news!
My heartfelt condolences to the families who lost their loved ones.

Terrorrists & their supporters are taking our country to ransom, attacking us at their wish & will!
The Govt wakes up after each attack & few days later they go back to slumber!

Why can't the Govt take some cues from countries like Israel, show zero-tolerance to such terrorist elements and take pre-emptive steps!
It is possible only if they can stop playing politics & take some stringent actions to prevent such dastardly acts by cowards.

I am sure the politicians will try to take advantage of this grave situation also. When will our country learn to put aside petty politics and fight terrorism ruthlessly and efficiently. Our country needs to take lessons from Israel. Terrorists are now striking at will.

My heart felt condolences to the families of the affected. Mumbaikars may God be with you in this hour of need.

It's been a long time since I felt so numb and shellshocked.
I can only pray - for safety, for comfort and solace.

I was supposed to go to to the French Consulate in Nariman Point today but seeing what's happening ,canceled my flight. The situation is extremely scary.
We, in India have seen hostage situations mostly in movies and heard about it in Kashmir. This is the first time we are looking at it happening right next to us.

Just came to know of this through the newspaper this morning. Am shocked. I hope & pray that all the near and dear ones of our TBHP family is ok.

As mentioned by most folks, mumbai friends, please stay indoors and don't venture out if not necessary.

My deepest condolences and salutes to all the police people who became martyrs in this shameless act of terrorism.

As expected, the Stock Exchange and the area around it have large number of cops patrolling. Thane is relatively dry too at this hour.
Have my workplace adjacent to the Stock Exchange building, needless to say we're closed for the day.
Guys, please stay indoors, avoid venturing out even if you are not in south Bombay, a handful of the terrorists who are at large could be just about anywhere.
