It sounds like a tragedy has occured in the Colaba region of Mumbai. It's quite shocking to think, especially after being there only a few months ago.
My heart goes out to the people and travellers there - I hope the people affected by this recover in the best way possible.
I also hope that the people responsible are dealt with efficiently and effectively by Indian officials. It's somewhat astounding how the attacks were quite unanticipated and little is known of the group.
This event will also draw travellers away which sucks for the Indian tourist industry and the people that depend on it in Mumbai
Anyway, just expressing my condolences...
What has happened and is still happening there is indeed a tragedy. Our thoughts go out to all those affected!
Shocking. A life is a life, whatever religion a person subcribes to.
Our heartfelt sympathies go to those who were killed and those who have suffered through this horrible event. It is Thanksgiving Day in America, and we will be thinking of all of you. Peace be with the world, and let us all give thanks for what we all have, not what we want.
Senseless. Outrageous. How can people be so filled with hate?
I am a frequent traveler to india and i don't think if mumbai bombed means india finished. basically, india is almost like a continent and hence we have wide ranges of tourist places in india viz, Bangluru, Hyderabad, Jodhpur, Jaipur and many more. -snip-

Finally both the hotels and other places have been cleared now
No doubt, the attacks have been terrible but i feel the administration wakes up and takes effective steps to prevent the recurrence of such events. The police force has to be modernised to cope up with the hi-tech terrorists. It took the military and marine commando's to finally get rid of the terrorists.
My office is close to the places attacked and i know how terrible is the experience. I was a frequent visitor to the Leopold cafe and sadly one of our colleagues was killed in the shoot out there.
"If the world is united against terror, terrorists will have nowhere to hide"
I also caught a train and got off at the CST station, and visited Leopold's twice :/
It was a great place where I talked to several nice travellers - a cool English guy also left an LP book there as a place where he could drop it and I picked up.
It's especially sad when you have met people there and absorbed the culture and way of life, and thinking how the people have been affected.
My family is missing in India
My wife, daughter and father in law were in India when the bombings occurred. Since then I cannot contact them. I don’t know if they were going to the incident area. They were in Agra until at least the 26 November. My wife is Simone PRITCHARD and my daughter is Emma. Emma is 3 years old and is a Chinese girl. If anyone has seen them please leave a message here.
