So this has not been the best week of my experience in Mumbai - the city is in a mess and mood is dire. I remember my friends who were in London and the US during the time of their mass terror attacks and it all came home for me right here.
Fortunately I am living some distance away from the Taj, Oberoi etc but rest assured the mood has not been confined to just that area. Mumbai is definitely resilient but some proactive preventative measure need to be put in place so this kind of thing can be avoided. Security is way to lax here compared with the UK.
The media of course in true media fashion have tried to get celebrities to comment on the disaster hoping to bait additional viewers etc. None have been so blatant to speak out against this as the megstar himself, Amitabh Bachchan in his blog. The media have been pestering him with calls and smses trying to get him to comment and he has flatly refused and reprimanded the press for their behaviour.
The mood in Mumbai will still be pretty somber over the next few days. A friend of mine's father in law passed away as a result of the gunfire in the attack so have been spending some time with her. Not really in the mood for making cartoons about Bollywood stuff at the moment but will be back on soon.
Prayers and best wishes to all Mumbaites - Jai Hind!
