Mumbai…

I mean when you think about it hotels are quite vulnerable. i’ve yet to enter one with a metal detector and guests are constantly arriving with suitcases which could be full of anything, guns, weapons, bombs–y’know??

Just spoke with my parents who live in Bangalore. they mentioned that there is speculation that the target could have been a group or groups of Israelis who arrived in Mumbay for trade-related meetings.

The following is taken from Sajaforum, in turn arrived at from Sepia Mutiny:

  1. no, fortunately it’s not (my folks live in Bangalore and Kerala and i’m a Delhi rather than Bombay person), though i’ve got friends there but it’s not so much worry about people i know as just a feeling of despair at such sudden deliberate carnage. The Taj is such an icon of Bombay, right next to India Gate, some of this is symbolic, what is bizarre is that this could be a Bollywood film come to life–i wonder if any film stars were in the hotels…

  2. of course its not just a matter of the hotel, or film stars. these actions seem like an assault on India’s current ethos of liberalism and openness. the focus is on the foreigners (the Rabbi etc) but as usual the most people killed were Indians, especially the ones at Victoria Terminus.
