Delhi Bleeding

Just as I was trying to catch some rest after my weekend shopping routine, Ashish called up and the first thing I heard was “BBC laga..”

Eyes widened. ears alert n a strange sensation like someone had just squeezed my heart as I looked to the TV…

Announced BBC… soon it became clear to me that there had been bomb blasts in the capital
Paharganj – which is just a stone-through-away from my house in Delhi
Sarojini Nagar
Govind Puri
Kotla Mubarakpur

Several are feared dead and lots more injured. The markets had been flooded by lots of shoppers just before Diwali and Eid. It’s sad that for so many families the coming few days would be full of grief.

My condolences are with the bereaved families.
