Schools Colleges Closed Tomorrow

In another couple of hours the city would come back to life as another Thursday dawns. However this Thursday is like no other the city has ever seen.

Schools, colleges, and other establishments are closed for the day, as announced by the Government.

There is no news if other government institutions will follow suit.

Corporate India should be on track to open for business as usual, especially the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange. This would be in line with what happened after the March 12, 1993 bombings. This is more as an act of defiance and not cowing down to terrorist threat and to allow life to go on as normal even in these extraneous times.

    The stock markets in Mumbai have been closed by Securities and Exchange Board of India. Apart from the fact that the terrorist siege continues at the Taj Mahal and Oberoi hotels, there’s probably a fear that there might be a meltdown at the stock markets if they were allowed to open on Tursday.

    The Army has begun its rescue operation at the Taj Hotel as soon as 100 people trapped in various rooms at the Taj were rescued. The terrorists still hold hostages at the Taj. The central dome of the Taj is on fire.

    3 terrorists have been killed at the Taj overnight. 5 foreign nationals are being held among other hostages at the Oberoi hotel at Nariman Point.
