Photographer's Note

I shudder to think. Standing behind the gateway i was looking straight at the Taj Mahal Palace. I shudder to think. That dreaded day of 26/11, the day that left a scar on the minds of the entire nation.

Two hotels, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower and the Oberoi Trident, were among the four locations targeted. Six explosions were reported at the Taj hotel one in the lobby, two in the elevators, three in the restaurant and one at the Oberoi Trident.

At the Taj Mahal Palace, firefighters rescued 200 hostages from windows using ladders during the first night.

CNN initially reported on the morning of 27 November 2008 that the hostage situation at the Taj had been resolved and quoted the police chief of Maharashtra stating that all hostages were freed; however, it was learned later that day that there were still two attackers holding hostages, including foreigners, in the Taj Mahal hotel.

The attacks, which drew widespread global condemnation, began on Wednesday, 26 November and lasted until Saturday, 29 November 2008, killing 164 people and wounding at least 308. [ Source: wiki ]
