  1. Rumors about blast at Elphinstone college not true. Checkd with journalist friend.

  2. Mumbai is absolutely back on track. Trains in Western Line functioning normally although the crowd level is substantially lesser.
    Hats off to the spirit of mumbaikars....

  3. I just want to drop in a word to say even though we are far away from home, we are thinking of you all in Bombay. Truly, it is a remarkble city. I heard on the BBC this morning that a 'spirit of defiance' dominates the city. Yes, that's why I tell people proudly that I am from Bombay.
