Anger on the streets of Mumbai after serial blasts

Jul 14, 2011

Witnesses recal the horror of the triple blasts in Mumbai on Wednesday evening at Dadar, Zaveri Bazar and Opera House. The three most crowded business districts in the city were targeted at peak office leaving times between 6:50 pm and 7:05 pm, leaving scores dead and injured.

An eye witness Hemant said, "the sight was something so bad that unfortunately no one who saw it live will forget it."

Scenes at the hospitals were heart rending as anxious relatives flocked to various hospitals searching for their loved ones.

"I cried so much at first, but then I realised I should be handling the situation instead of crying," said a relative.

The blasts came exactly 5 years and 2 days after the 7/11 train blasts. With Mumbai being targeted time and time again, anger on the streets was clearly on the rise.

"Every second we are afraid something will happen," said a Mumbaikar.
Another Mumbaikar said, "When Indians come together and show these terror outfits are strength, then they will that India is India."

Though the emergency response system seemed to have improved this time, Mumbaikars are asking when the system will be equipped enough to prevent such terror attacks.
