As we celebrate Thanksgiving weekend in the U.S. with our families, like South Asians across the world, our television sets, radios and computers are tuned to the Mumbai terrorist attacks. Our deepest condolensces go out to those involved and affected.
The internet has proved to be an invaluable source of information. NDTV has live, round-the-clock footage of the sites. The South Asian Journalists Association is also hosting webcasts every 12 hours with key sources on the ground, analysts and others in the community. And for a more personal perspective, novelist Amit Chaudhuri has an introspective paean to Mumbai in today's Guardian newspaper.
We'll have more to say on this on Monday. Until then, people of Bombay, our hearts and minds are with you.
