And so we met...

...This morning, from scattered parts of Mumbai, Cuffe Parade to Kandivali, to Kopar Khairane, to Bandra to Andheri to Powai. All brought together by nothing but their desire to help. Ideas flowed and were discussed, opinions voiced and faces put to names and blog ids. Yes, bloggers and non bloggers met up today. Sat down with victim lists. Worked out a plan to reach out. And gave ourselves a couple of weeks.

We are starting with the bereaved families and the victims of the Mumbai carnage. We hope we can help. Longterm. Not just handing over cash and moving on but handholding families through this painful transitional phase till they're back on their feet. Helping with education, training, jobs and whatever rehabilitation we can offer. We have no resources but our desire to help out.

Over the next couple of weeks we will be visiting individual homes and bringing you the stories. First hand. And yes, we are going to try our damnedest to make a difference.
