Terror in Mumbai

Seven major explosions rocked Mumbai on Tuesday. The serial blasts occurred at Borivili, Khar, Meera Road, Matunga, Jogeshwari, Bhayander railway stations and a seventh on the Khar-Santacruz subway.

About 174 people are feared killed and over 403 people injured in the serial blasts.

CNN-IBN and BBC , and Map: where the blasts happened

Nothing could be more heinous and shamless than this. Local trains, lifeline of Mumbai city, are jampacked during the evening peak hours when people return home. I travel in the Central Railway, which was not affected by this ghastly act, and was running on time. Well, the life should go on, otherwise they will win. My heart goes out to those people who were travelling in those compartement where the blasts occurred.

This is terrible news and I am glad that you use a different line and were thus OK. We experinced a form of this last year as I am sure that you know. These extremists seem to be everywhere these days.

Dave: Completely agree with you that these extremists are now everywhere. Yes, I remember London's 7/7. I had read about it last year in papers.
