August 25, 2004

365 days later, only those affected directly by the twin explosions which shook Mumbai on August 25, 2003 remember it in detail. Apart from the victims and their loved ones, they perhaps include eyewitnesses lucky enough to have escaped, journalists, policemen, and the doctors and paramedics dealing with the dead and wounded.

For the rest of the city, life has moved on. References to the event are made in passing, if at all.

365 days later, the trial of the six accused who were arrested (six others are still at large) is yet to begin.

The police and security agencies have stepped up their vigil, and reports of 'terrorists' arrested and killed in encounters have become almost a routine affair.
