It’s been seven years since 10 Pakistani terrorists arrived by sea route and opened fire indiscriminately at different sites in Mumbai, killing 166, including 18 security personnel, and injuring several others, besides damaging property worth crores.

While the city has moved on, the memories of that still haunt us.
