Public co-operation is commendable and highly appreciable. On a Marath news channel I saw two people carrying an injured constable to hospital on a two-wheeler after their efforts to arrange for a car went in vain.
I remember, on the day of the 7/11 train blasts in Mumbai when I boarded a bus from Churchgate-Chembur, it had taken me 4 hours to complete the journey....at every step throughout my journey there were people distributing water-bottles, biscuits, packed snacks, tetra-packed juices etc. to people stranded in traffic jams. I saw certain shopkeepers literally emptying the snacks in their shops to distribute to stranded people! Hats off to the spirit of the people of Mumbai! Mumbai generally gets together during times of crisis.

That is the true spirit of people.not of any region.Its in all of us.Nobody will back of in the hour of need.

Oh yes.this is the scum we need to fight in our system.these terrorists.they always get away while our politicians and people keep fighting over regional discrapancies.

By the way where is our soft on terror government and our serial dresser home minister.

Friend of mine stuck in Taj ballroom. Bullets missed him by few feet. They have been herded into rooms and locked. In touch with him on phone.
I'm recalled to police hospital at nagpada. Just leaving once van comes to pick me.

Will keep posted.

How the hell do these guys just walk in to these places with freakin automatic rifles and grenades?? Im so pissed right now. THIS IS THE LIMIT. Commission the armed forces if you have to, there has to be something done regarding the security of people.

Extremely disappointed and depressed :(
