A moving portrayal of the 2006 Mumbai bomb blasts and the times we live in Terrorism strikes at the basic principles of humanity, of all that we cherish. By deciding the way we die, it mocks our lives and diminishes all that we struggle to achieve. On 11 July 2006, the end of an ordinary day in the life of a city brimming with life turned, instead, into a nightmare as Mumbai was shaken by a series of bomb explosions on its suburban trains. A week after the blasts, in which 187 people died, the Indian Express began a series documenting each of the lives lost their dreams, their doubts, their hopes, their struggles. This book consolidates their memory in one volume. At the same time, this book is a tribute to the indefatigable spirit of Mumbai. It is also a toast to its citizens the ordinary people of Mumbai who worked tirelessly through the night to help the wounded, the stranded and the missing, but for whom it was business as usual the next morning as, sixteen hours later, the Mumbai Locals rolled out again and a grieving city went about its business.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Thursday 01 December, 2011.
