7Ã‚Â blasts in the local trains…
Reports of bomb blasts have come in from between Mahim-Matunga in north-central Mumbai, Khar, Jogeshwari (both in north-west Mumbai) and Mira Road (in Mumbai north, in Thane district), at a time when the suburban commuter traffic was its heaviest. The first blast was said to have taken place at 6.25 pm at Khar.
The Western Railway emergency service has so far confirmed the Khar blast, and said further details were awaited.
UPDATE 7:01am Pacific time: CNN-IBN reports on a still unconfirmed sixth blast. Fausta is following the story and notes the grim connection: “Madrid, London, Bombay?” Rediff had a reporter on the scene almost immediately. Deep Ganatra has the first n…

i got news of very fist blast.. called up bombay central railway station for more info as it is the time i leave for home. there i got news of second blast. And then TV in office was turned on, and whole series of blasts.. as phones are not working, i am giving updates to my contacts through Yahoo/WLM/Google chat/Rediff Bol.
Mobile phones are not working for most of time but Rediff bol helped a lot by giving free sms.
ICICI Online recharge for prepaid mobiles was also helpful as i did topup of my few friends from office instantly.
[…] More details are on various local blogs. There’s been the inevitable traffic chaos (Mumbai has one of the busiest railway systems in the world) and unsurprising responses from Pakistan’s government and India’s opposition party, but it is slightly worrying that the Indian PM has announced he’ll “take all possible measures to … defeat the forces of terrorism”. Little more than a rapid populist reaction, sure, but do I sense shades of the G.W. Bush school of anti-terrorism? […]
List of hospitals along with phone numbers and addresses
If i see a terrorist anywhere near me I am going to kill him right at the spot.
This is the worst incident to happen to Mumbai, unite people we need to fight them off, no one can fight them unless we unite.
I hate to see these people dying, tomorrow it can be either you or me, we are so lucky to be alive.
But if we weren’t would our familes cry or fight…
So it is better to fight and die, rather than die and cry.
Bombay hit again…
Phone lines down. I cannot contact my immediate family in the city. Help.

Mumbai train blasts…
From my personal experience in Mumbai I can tell that the shuttle train network is the lifeline of Mumbai. 6 Million people commute via this network each day from distant locations to the heart of financial capital of India. And the majority of the c…..
[…] Mumbai, the lifeline of India was shattered by 7 bomb blasts in the western railway 1st class compartment. The life of mumbaikar became standstill for a moment, everything seem to be stopped and everyone went into deep shock. The death toll kept on increasing, 20, 30, 47, 63, 90, 137, 174, 200. People came out to help each other, police woke up from their long sleep and got themselves on the duty to help people. Politicians started preparing speeches, opposition party leaders got themselves ready to bash the ruling party. […]
This is really a horrific & insane act towards humanity, people who have committed such an act of terror will suffer in utter pain & will face their worst fear. For the ones who have lost their lives & have left behind loved ones & children we all whole hearteadly pray for their soul to live in peace.
[…] I m following the story on Desipundit and i think Electronic and Print media will soon be taking over the issue. Many including me believe that its due to terrorist organizations like SIMI and LeT who are believed to have played a major role in recent Mumbai Local Trains Bombings are using blogs to reach out their Blogs.
