By now, everyone has probably heard about the terrorist attacks in Mumbai over this Thanksgiving holiday. I can say that my prayers and thoughts are with the families of the survivors, as well as those who lost loved ones during this tragic event.
There has been a lot of chatter about this event over on the Bombay and Mumbai forums (hat tip: Orkut Heros), as well as on Twitter (which I have been following on my iPhone).
Here is just a small sample of the chatter that is emerging from Orkut:
- Over in the India-Pakistan Friendship Club, MrNiceGuy is reporting that Pakistan is reaching out towards India and condemning the attacks.
- In the India forum, members are posting minute by minute updates regarding India's fight with the terrorists, with latest news (as of this post) mentioning Indian helicopters shooting at terrorists.
- Over at the Future-India community, their is news that the people of Mumbai are holding their heads high and returning back to work in order to defy the terrorists (as Mumbai from what I hear is the financial capital of India).
If anyone has any other information regarding the situation, feel free to post in the comments below (or link to discussion threads on Orkut).
Note: If anyone reading this is from Mumbai, please contact your friends, family and co-workers if you have not already to let them know that you are safe. As for everyone else, stay safe!!! (and do not let terrorists of any religion/creed bully you and tell you how to live your life!)
