One more series of bomb blasts in Mumbai-India



(Picture courtesy: today.reuters.com/news)
A series of 7 bomb explosions rocked Mumbai this evening around 6:00 PM (local time). All seven explosion took place in a span of 30 minutes across seven locations in western Mumbai. The blast took place during the peak hour, when many working people start going back to their homes.
Till now official claim is that around 145 people have been killed and 250 people are injured. But in reality the actual numbers always outnumber the official figures. Looking at the timing of the blast, location of the blast, I suspect around 250-300 people might have been killed.

Thanks for visiting my blog and thanks for the wishes :).
Regarding your blog.. I can't help but mention one of the many things that makes India apart from any other country is its tolerance and if you look back into history it has done a lot of good to the country. Its the tolerane of India for Pakistan that most of the world is on India's side. Its because of tolerance that the diversity in India could exist.
Sorry if I went on ranting too much. But this is just what I think :).

Hey Tanu
Welcome back again.
Yes i agree that many countries respect India because of it's tolerance. But how long a country should tolerate? Look at other countries..US,UK,Israel.. what i mean is a country should be tolerant up to certain extent& there should be some limit. That limit has been crossed many many times.

Sometimes there is no limit.. and maybe you and I do not see it now.. but being tolerant I am sure will be the best thing for India to do (even though personally I sometimes get so enraged by what Pakistan does to India... but I think its better for India to be tolerant). But this is my opinion :)
