"Blocked in an apartment in Bombay during three days of curfew in a part of the city during the bomb attacks of 26th-29th November, 2008, the narrator is particularly affected by the killings at the CST station, where he took photographs of passengers not long back. While the media is centered around the hostage situation in five star hotels, he mourns the simple men who have been killed at the station- symbol of a category of Indians who are victims of a new India. While the sporadic explosions reverberate not very far from his comfortable room offered by a friend, he has all the leisure to remember his trip in the sub-continent, on the backdrop of globalisation, favourable to some and imposed on the others."
