The Wave of Terror

Picture this, you are out of your office the tensions of the day behind you, and making your way to your house and your loved ones by the local train. Then a blast and blood and mangled bodies everywhere. Mumbaikars had a rude shock yesterday evening between 6 and 6:30 P.M. when seven blasts ripped through Mumbai's life-line the local train service. The blasts took place in the first class compartments of trains in Bhayandar, Jogeshwari, Mahim, SantaCruz, Khar, Matunga and Borivali.
Nearly 200 people are dead and close to 350 are seiously injured. Eye-witnesses say many people jumped from moving trains to save their lives. The government has sounded an alert and security has been beefed up in the metros. The Lashkar-e-Toiba is suspected of carrying out these attacks, but no arrests have been made so far.

A silent prayer for all those who lost their lives in this terror carnage. May their souls rest in peace.
