    Terror Attack on Mumbai, India, yet again. Multiple blasts at five star hotels and other crucial places have been going on throughout the night. These crucial places are under seige.

    A massive fire broke out on the upper portion of the heritage building of the luxury Hotel Taj at Colaba in Mumbai during an encounter between security forces and terrorists holed up inside.

    The fire, which now seems to be spreading, was preceded by two explosions and followed by intermittent gunfire.

    Thick plumes of smoke billowed out of the dome of the hotel located opposite the British colonial era monument of Churchgate of India.

      Hey Stuti

      What is the current situation?? There are a ton of conflicting news reports here in South Africa.. Is the hostage situation continuing as well? This is just so sad.. Innocent people..

      Its really a shame.. Any building can be rebuilt, Any car can be replaced.. but.. The lives lost could never be refunded.. :(..

      Please stay safe, your nation and people will surely be in our prayers..

      Agreed by many mumbaikars, open to suggestions, here is the 5 step first-action plan to indirectly combat political corruption, that directly breeds terrorism....

      -> Defame the family members of politicians - make porn and submit to media
      ->Produce morph videos/photos publicising agitation and infighting
      ->Target indifference, and if possible, kill the family/loved ones of ministers
      ->Help breed infighting, produce false multimedia and foster hatred among the ministers
      ->Watch the Dark Knight movie, become a maniac for the ministers.
