Blasts rock London !!!

It was a sloggy day today... with the news of the bomb blasts in London Underground at the Aldgate station spreading across our office....

We thought it was a minor incident ... but later it turned out to be worst...as when the news of the series of blasts started coming...this made Tony Blair to return to London from his G8 summit from the Gleneagles in scotland....

With lots of emails pouring in... reagarding my safety... i was forced to convince my friends...that i am safe here...sitting some 25 miles away from the site of the bomb blast......

Thank god...one of my previous colleague Rashmi ...had a narrow escape from the attack at the Kings Cross Station... She reported that she heard the sound of the blast after leaving the station and heading towards her office...

The series of blasts has made london stand still... People of London were expecting this sort of
attack...at some point of time... its their anticipation that had made them to face this terrorist
attack with a bold face...

People have started referring to this attack as 07/07... similar to the 09/11 attacks at the
WTC in US way back in 2001.

The stock prices down drastically... though the US stock exchange gained later in the day.. Rediff reported that indians have lost almost 33k crores in the BSE trade..due to this news...

By the end of the day, it has been confirmed that 39 people are dead and 700 were injured...
