The boy is alive and kicking and frolicking

The last one hour had been one of the most horrible times of my life. Just got the news as world wide headline on BBC that Mumbai has again been ripped apart by serial bomb blasts on the commuter trains at the rush hours of this evening. Plenty of casualties. Brother commutes in train everyday. But it was quite late in India. The mobile was not picked up over and over making my BP surge high. Just felt cruelly helpless, can not figure out what I should do at this moment so far away. Thousands of gruesome scenes started thronging to the mind till got a call from father .... phewwww!!!!!!.....

P.S. Gaurav, Amit are keeping timelines of the developments in Mumbai after the blasts. Amit wisely points out this event is very tempting for the Shiv Sena to take advantage of to again incite a communal riot.

P.P.S. The boy passed through Matunga Station just half an hour before the blast rocked the station. The boy commutes on the same route as that of the blasted train. The lesson: when you live in the hell, God is born in heaven, because people in the hell only need the help of God.
