Mumbai Blasts (Updates)

“Sameer”: writes from Mumbai
bq. The people of Mumbai have, as always, bounced right back, refusing to be cowed down. Whether this is resilience or apathy… one thing is certain. The spirit that keeps Mumbai ticking has not died down. An example of that resilience is the fact that the Sensex, which plumetted 120 points during the day yesterday, after the news of the blasts broke… has bounced back by regaining most of the lost ground.
