Solidarity for Bombay in Paris

The Indians in Paris gathered last Thursday, the 4th December to show solidarity for the people of Mumbai.

Sombre mood, a need for reaffirmation in our roots and that we stand together as a people was the underlining mood.

A concern for all our kindred folks marks moments like these.

Mumbai, for me, has always been a city very close to my heart. This summer on our trip to India, we had decided to look at Mumbai as tourists. We have good souvenirs of our afternoon at the Hotel Taj, lazily fighting the slumber with a nice, masala cuppa and a cheese cake, soaking in the view of the Majestic Gateway of India, the small boats lined across and the Arabian Sea.
