Children of Bombay

Last afternoon my friend Rahul and I were killing time as we awaited the opening of a friend's art show in Colaba. We spoke of our hopes for the future, our dreams. I said to him something I've thought about for a few months, maybe a year now: I don't want my children to live here. In this city. Maybe even in this country.

My friend is expecting his first child, and he said to me: My wife and I had this same conversation today. But what do we do. Where do we go?'


Why did we say what we did? 

I said it because I see with my eyes and in my work, and so it comes through in my writing: in a city where the young, the able, the educated, do not have a chance, what chance will the the helpless have? Our children, our elderly parents? The animals we love?

And in Bombay, a city which is dying, I said to Rahul: where will my child study? which libraries will he or she go to? I said to him, I wanted to buy your wife a pram. But what roads will you push that pram on, which garden? There are no sidewalks in Bombay anymore. There is no clean air. People stone the dogs I feed outside my house. My neighbours say 'No Muslims.' When I landed in the city last week I thought to myself: This looks like Kabul before curfew.


Government warnings and helplines

RR Patil, state home minister, asked people to stay indoors, to not go into South Bombay in the day. Schools are being advised to stay shut.

Please listen, people. This is not the time to show the spirit of mumbai. You'll get in the ways of the cops.

Also. CNN IBN says blood is needed at JJ Hospital +91 22 23739031 - and St George's Hospital - +91 22 22620240.

The Mumbai Police website has a bunch of emergency numbers here: http://www.mumbaipolice.org/imp_telnfax.htm

Law enforcement officers killed

TV reports say that the chief of the Anti Terrorism Squad, Hemant Karkare and DIG Ashok Kante have been killed.
