Yes, he was a living human being once. The official death toll in the Black Tuesday 7/11 blasts has been placed at 200 and the injured at over 700. Union Home Secretary V K Duggal claims the government has got some leads on the serial blasts but no arrests have been made. State police chief P S Pasricha says that some political figures in Maharashtra are under Police scanner for their suspicious actions and action will be taken against them at an appropriate time. School children walk past the site of the explosion before catching an early morning suburban train to school at the Mahim railway station of Mumbai. Yes, the schools were open. So were colleges and offices. Most showed full attendance. Some were absent, though. Forever. And some because they were in hospitals. 
Churchgate station, Mumbai. Train services on the Western line resumed from Churchgate to Borivili, passing through the stations that saw blood on the tracks yesterday. Yes, they were as crowded and packed as ever. VIPs, Sharad Pawar had said, would only disrupt the situation, with special security and arrangements that follow in their wake. But our good samaritans were not to be stopped. The Maharashtra government at least had the sense to announce that all medical treatment of the injured, regardless of where obtained, would be paid for by the government. The rail minister announced  Rs five lakh compensation and a job to the next of kin of those killed, while those with simple injuries requiring more than just first aid treatment are to get 10,000 rupees. A blood donor at the KEM Hospital in Mumbai. Hundreds of city residents were seen queing up outside  the blood banks after hospitals in the city appealed to citizens and citizens groups to donate blood, rush doctors and paramedical staff to help treat those injured in the serial bomb blasts.  Meanwhile, responding to an appeal by Maharashtra government to supply donated blood  Surat-based blood banks have kept ready over 1600-blood bottles. Those who got ignored yesterday. Security personnel bring in a tourist who was injured in a grenade attack at Gulmarg, for treatment at a hospital in Srinagar. Tourists began a large exodus from Jammu and Kashmir in the aftermath of grenade attacks in which six visitors were killed on Tuesday. Many mid-range hotels and houseboats were almost empty as tourists from other parts of the country started heading home and  the Dal Lake, bustling with visitors since the beginning of the tourist season in April, wore a deserted look. Terrorists hit where it matters: the economic life-line of the state. Mumbai showed how to protest, but those in Delhi were far more, shall we say, rude. A member of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) breaks the windows of a bus in protest in New Delhi. While VHP members vandalized tow buses in Delhi to express their outrage against the Mumbai blasts, the Muslim community in Ahmedabad and Hyderabad marched out in peace. Leader of the Opposition L K Advani too seems to have had second thoughts and declined to criticise the government in the wake of the Mumbai blasts, saying it is not the time for criticising the government on its acts of commission and omission. The 'Raja' (Government) and 'Praja' (people) must unitedly face the immediate challenge before us. 

National Akali Dal activists shout anti- Pakistan slogans and burn a Pakistani flag during a protest against the Mumbai train explosions, in New Delhi. They were not the only ones losing their cool. Indian external affairs ministry too decided to let Pakistan foreign minister have a piece of its mind and said that it found it appalling that Foreign Minister Kasuri should seek to link the blatant and inhuman act of terrorism against innocent men, women and children to so called lack of resolution of disputes between India and Pakistan.
How long will this vigilance last? Army soldiers stand guard near the India Gate in New Delhi. Governments around the world have tightened security in cities from New Delhi to Karachi to New York after the Mumbai blasts.
