1993 Ter­ror in Bom­bay

India Today - - INSIDE -

As a metaphor for mod­ern In­dia, Bom­bay has no equal. As a tar­get for ter­ror­ists bent on send­ing a de­struc­tive mes­sage, it is even more so. That re­al­ity hit home with crush­ing force last week as the city was shaken to its foun­da­tions by a se­quence of ex­plo­sions on se­lected, highly vul­ner­a­ble tar­gets, most of them vis­i­ble sym­bols of its sta­tus as In­dia’s fi­nan­cial and com­mer­cial nerve cen­tre.

For a metropolis that had barely re­cov­ered from the com­mu­nal frenzy of De­cem­ber and Jan­uary, the lat­est disas­ter came like a se­ries of ham­mer blows. I NDIA TO­DAY, MARCH 31, 1 993
