How can we help you?

Please note: this blog is not the yellow pages. And this post was intended to help people track loved ones in the aftermath of the 11th July train blasts. So please don't leave unconnected requests here. We're not going to respond.

If you're looking for info, please leave a comment in this post. We'll try and get info for you. Please leave contact info. We'll monitor this post for that purpose.

Also, if you see a query you can answer, please do so, and let us know via a comment.

If you're trying to get through to someone, leave
1.their name and phone number, and
2. your name and phone number.

One of us will try and get through and get back to you.

Please see this post for ways to send SMSes (short text messages) via email.

Update: Please use this page (it's a wiki that anyone can edit) to leave phone numbers to be contacted.

Update 2: If you have contacted the person you were worried about (or if someone has contacted her/him for you) , please delete the comment which left personally identifying information. You'll have to be logged in to blogger under the same ID that you posted your comment. We'll delete these comments ourselves later, but there are a whole lot of them, and it will take time. (update: all comments containing personal phone numbers and email addresses have been deleted.)
Thanks for you help.

  1. Is there some place that has a list of wounded etc. - have the three hospitals put the lists up? I'm trying to get in touch with my father on his mobile and canNOT get through and I'm in another country halfway around the world. If anyone has any access to these lists and could put them online I'd be grateful for any information.

  2. Hi,

    My father is located in Mumbai and generally uses the Western line to commute home from work. I am trying to get in touch with him but am not able to get through.

    Can anyone contact him on 9892900411 and ask him to call us back as soon as possible? If anyone establishes contact, please post it on this forum as well. Or alternately call me on my mobile number 00-44-77464-75077

    Thanks a lot.

  3. Hemant - I'm trying that number constantly and will post here whenever I touch base with him.

    ReplyDelete
  4. If you can't get through on a cell phone, try text messaging. That often works when you can't reach someone on voice.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Hemant... I just smsed the number you sent me. And got a delivery report. will post here when I get a reply.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Got a reply from your father saying that he will try and get in touch with you

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hemant - i'll try and conference him on to you if/when I touch base.

  8. Phone lines in Mumbai are still working sporadically. So please don't panic. Leave comments here and everyone will try to help.

  9. Just got through and managed to talk to my dad who's in Gujarat right now. According to his information all local communication lines have been shut down in the western region (I'm assuming its Maharashtra, Gujarat and other states)... only calls coming from outside India are being let through.

  10. You are doing a great job guys. Hats off!

  11. Hi all,

    My sister was able to establish contact with my father. He is fine, Thank God! He was safely back at home when the blasts happened.

    He is also trying to contact us, but the phone lines are down. He has sent out an SMS saying that he is ok.

    Thank you all for your support and help.

    Here's praying that everyone finds that there near ones in Mumbai are alright. I know the "One Upstairs" is not going to listen to my prayers for 60 (maybe more?) people who are not going to reach home tonight. I pray for their family members to survive this time of grief.

    Thanks again all of you.

  13. Just backing up n's comment: phone lines are working - I just spoke to a couple of people in Bombay (I'm calling from Delhi). They're probably just busy.

    Also, text messages seem to be going through - though there's a bit of a delay.

    Great job guys! Its during times like these that Mumbaikars really unite and help each other out.

  45. @ Mahesh. The blast has not affected anyone who was not actually at the station. If no one in your family is expected to be travelling around 6:30pm, they'll all be fine.

  52. Guys in India: Just a quick tip/suggestion. I have in the past sent SMS to people in India from my email account. The adress to send SMSs would be (cellnumber starting with 98) [at] (whatever domain that's associated with the particular provider in your area, airtelkk.net for Karnataka i think).

    The catch is that you need to know who the provider is for the particular cell number that you are trying to reach.

    I have been outside india for sometime now and don't even know who the providers operating in Mumbai are. It would be awesome if someone can find this info (should not be much more than a handful) and post it here so people can directly send an sms to their kin in Mumbai.

    True. For BPL Mobile, try the number @bplmobile.com

    Yahoo messenger also allows for SMSes, but that seems to be down.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Kunjan, Got through to Bhavna. She's fine. Said that she's online and is trying to ping you. Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Anantha, Yazad,

    Just to add to what you guys suggested, here are a list of the service providers - if indeed these are the domains, they might work: http://coai.in/network-serviceproviders.htm

    Also, a list of the MSC codes is available at http://coai.in/MSC%20Codes.htm

    Things seem to be fine where I am. Less than usual traffic and no commotion - so far.

    Keep your fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  58. @Anantha : 98xxxxxxxx@bplmobile.com is working..ILA

  59. Dhoomketu: Thanks a lot man! I am talking to her right now.

    I hope everyone is safe there. I really hope this situation doesnt spiral out of control.

  63. My sister in Mumbai couldn't get through to my mum in Borivili to tell her she was okay (phone lines jammed), so she called us in London and we were able to get through in a reverse sort of communication. I'm so shocked that I'm shaking. I just keep saying to myself - I could have been on one of those trains.

    God bless you all.

  178. Started from South Bombay at 11:00 and reached Worli in 10 minutes. The roads are quite clear. Neither are there people on the roads 'forcing' people to give lifts, whatever that means...

    Have heard that Mohd Ali Road-Sion-Bandra is also clear, though Shivaji Park-Mahim might be clogged. Will update soon.

  188. Hi

    I would like to confirm that text messages are going through. I have been using them to find out about people Id recommend using them since it frees up phone lines for those who are in emergencies.

  190. Khyati, Dimple is absolutely fine and Komal is in Delhi right now so all's good on that end

  191. As soon as I said it, the traffic situation changed slightly. Road is blocked on Annie Besant Road after Worli. We had to take a detour through a few inner lanes. Left Worli at 11:25 and reached Prabhadevi at 11:32. So not much pain.

    Situation's worse from Shivaji Park onwards though. Good news is that traffic is moving, though slowly.
