    Massacre In Mumbai On 26 Th November Massacre In Mumbai On 26 Th November Presentation Transcript

    • The city never sleeps, but it takes breaks. After a hard day’s work one doesn’t go home to bed, you go to café, a knock back a pint or two of chilled beer, chat with the backpackers, walk the streets and bite into steamy kebabs somewhere on the half a lit lane behind the Taj. Those with deep pockets walk into the luxury hotel for a drink & a fine meal. Those with nothing in their pockets can at least stand on Marine drive, smell the breeze blowing off the sea and hear the waves crash on the huge boulders along the Queen’s Necklace And then, it’s November 26 and all of a sudden the script changes…..
