Mumbai Remembrance, London, Friday Dec 5th

The recent events in Mumbai have affected many of us around the world directly or indirectly, irrespective of our nationality or connections with India.

To remember the dead and the injured, some of us in London are organising a quiet, non-political, non-religious time for us to stop and reflect for a while, as follows:

Date: Friday, December the 5th 2008

Venue: Lecture Theatre SG06, London Business School
Regent’s Park
London NW1A 4SA

Time: 1700 hrs to 2100 hrs (You are welcome to come in, whenever is suitable for you during this period)

Directions: Can be found here

Nearest tube stations: Marylebone, Regent’s Park (both on Bakerloo line), Baker Street (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, Jubilee and Bakerloo lines)

We would very much appreciate it, when you come into London Business School, if you could sign the condolence book.

We are in the process of organising concerted citizen action to try and reduce the ongoing incidence and cost of terrorism. Do leave an email address if you would like to be kept informed about it.

We thank London Business School’s India Club (Correction: London Business School and the students from India) for responding swiftly to our request and organising the venue.

  1. I’m really glad you’re doing this. Wish I could come. Might just sit down and think with you for a while at that time instead.

    Interested in your citizens project too, please put me on the list.

    I’ve never been to India, and my closest connection to what happened is knowing a bit about the Chabad movement (the Chabad centre in Mumbai was one of the targets). But it’s not about connections so much for me, it’s about human beings. This is a particularly awful, difficult event to wrap one’s head around, and I’m having trouble. Terrible.

  2. @Alice: Thanks for your note and your kind words. The whole thing was unfathomable to most humans (except perhaps those who caused it to happen and those who believe in their style of ‘commitment to cause’). I think in peaceful times, you will enjoy a visit to India.

    On our planned projects, I shall keep you posted. Thanks for your interest.
