Still not sunk in yet ..... The Taj and Oberoi Hotels, I have been to several times over the years, most recently in August- that this is surreal and literally unbelievable!!!

Good to know about you Hari. A terrible, disgusting tragedy that appears to still be ongoing for some.

In all of India, how many people have been killed by terrorists in 2008?

Quite possible, although I have no idea about the numbers.

The difference is - until now all prior incidents happened in obscure locations. Almost all of them unfortunately hitting places that lose attention after a few days.

This one seems to be co-ordinated and planned in a big way and has target the heart of the economic/financial/ cultural hub of India. Prominent people from all walks of life are around these parts........

Knowing Mumbai and their resilience, the city will draw it's strength and rise together and the city will be back in it's glory. I have no doubt!!!

Hari, I´m gratified to read that you, family, friends and staff are OK. I have spent many enjoyable afternoons passing time in the Leopold Cafe and nights in the Taj.

I arrived yesterday in Mallorca for an idyllic vacation (before traveling to Andorra), not to think I would be watching CNN well past the point of jetlag fatigue.

The questioning by the CNN international anchors has been distressingly supercilious -- along the lines of ¨How could this have been allowed to happen?¨ That´s not the type of question I have heard CNN ask US or European politicians, especially in a haughty tone, like I have heard them ask the Mumbai spokespeople.

Hi Hari,

Glad to know your okay, this is definitely crazy. A friend of mine (one Shabbir bhai) was in the Oberoi and has been injured with a gunshot in his arm.

Hi Michael,

We are asking much the same questions, as to how this could have happened???? You having been to the Taj etc etc., know the magnitude of the situation and how it affects the country as a whole........ Terrorists arriving by ships and walking in via the "Gateway of India"???? Not acceptable at all ......... The situation is still ongoing at the moment and questions will be asked of our Government very shortly.

Hi Mohammed,

I am very sorry to hear about your friend at the Oberoi. I hope he has got out of the hotel by now.

My thoughts are with you Hari.

While I'm glad that you and those you know are safe, I'm so sorry for all involved with this nonsensical tragedy.

Hari, my thoughts are with you, all Mumbaikars, all Indians, and all others caught up in the horrors in Mumbai. The coverage available on NDTV is horrifying. This is not just "another terrorist attack" -- it is clearly an assault on the very soul and fabric of a city.
