On The Anniversary Of 26/11 Penguin Releases ‘ 26/11 Stories Of Strength’

26/11 Stories of Strength

By The Indian Express

Foreword by Amitabh Bachchan

On the tenth anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, survivors recount their stories of resilience

The iconic dome of the Taj is long rebuilt, the railway terminus washed clean. But a few hundred Indians still bear the scars of 26/11, having lost loved ones.

In 26/11 Stories of Strength, The Indian Express dips into ten years of reportage on Mumbai’s terror survivors to find single mothers attending night school to get an education, children daring to dream big despite losing a parent and ageing parents finding new purpose to live after losing their sons.

Many have dug deep within to grapple with anger, fear and the desire for retribution. And, hearteningly, have emerged to tell stories of their triumph over senseless violence through lives lived with honour and compassion.
