 Sitting here in my room which happens to be in posh South Mumbai, the saving grace of Mumbai, financial capital of India. I am hearing the commentary of a Times Now reporter talking abt a possible hostage situation at Trident hotel which is a 5 minute walk from my place.
Another possible hostage situation where a top cop lost his life is the Taj Mahal hotel. Which is again a small walk away, and I could hear one of the blasts in this hotel. That blast caused a great fire in one of the Taj rooms and now the fire has entirely spread on the fifth floor! The Taj dome is bursting and breaking under the heaten throes of the raging fire.

A number of other places shootings, blasts are taking place! 

I told my watch man to sit inside the building and close the doors.

In colaba it seems the terrorists got into a residential building terrace and consequentially a couple in their home were killed!

I feel a sense of being dazed. I could call it a sense of unreality but I think it is the sense of reality settling into me. Maybe listening to blasts in Bangalore, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Assam, Islamabad did not do it. Maybe reading about the Congo genocide did not do it.
But this that is happening is where the world is at……
More later, now I am starving it is 3.00 in the morning and I need to eat.
