India's 9/11 >> Mumbai terror attacks

'Blasts rock Taj hotel as commandos try to end standoff' and 'Oberoi hotel cleared of hostages'; the news is breaking on CNN as I speak. Since I myself have been in Mumbai twice (very near the Taj hotel) and since I have enjoyed many tipsy evenings in the Leopold Cafe (one of the targets), I must say: Damn! As you can see to the left, one of the domes of the Taj is in full blaze. 9/11 all over again. What's intriguing to me (for lack of a better word) is the blogosphere. I've seen several interviews by CNN with bloggers. Of course, blogging has been here for a few years now, but this particular event, I think, symbolizes the extent to which 'the news-gathering-landscape' has changed over the last few years. The mountain of information out there is enormous; Although they're still shooting it seems every square cm has been filmed, taken a picture of, blogged about and what might not. I personally realized this once more when I saw the pictures below (thank you Arun Shanbhag).

You can see blood and a round serving tray. A waiter who was working in the Leopold Cafe was shot in the head when he was running out (with the serving tray in his hands). He fell down and died right there.
