Bombay blast

I was scanning the blogs from Bombay to see if there is anymore
information about the bomb blasts. Most of them have the same info as
the newspapers. Some even have ignored it. This is the third bomb that
has exploded in recent times.

Easy Guru has some
thoughts on the bomb blasts 10 years back. I was there too. I had just
moved to Bombay, a month back and what a shock it was for me. But
Bombay is an amazing city. The next working day, the stock exchange,
which was bombed, started functioning.

More developments in Malaysia

After Indian IT professionals were mistreated in Malaysia by Malaysian police, here are some actions by the Indian Govt.

  • Outraged over the ill-treatment of 270 Indian IT professionals in Malaysia, New Delhi has decided to re-examine some of the decisions pending under its civil aviation bilateral treaty with Kuala Lumpur.
    The first casualty could well be the extension of landing facility to Malaysian Airlines at Kolkata and the seat-sharing arrangement with Air India.

  • As 32 Indian IT professionals prepared to leave Malaysia Friday after a humiliating week- -end police detention, New Delhi was considering issuing a travel advisory to its citizens planning to visit the country.

This is the first time I am seeing the Indian Govt. standing up for its citizens in crisis.
