For anyone who ever doubted the power of the internet, let that doubt float away. It is what joins all of us, wherever we live, whatever our station or ambition or view or activity. Through the internet, I found Twitter, a microblog of one-line remarks from the people of Mumbai, and others around the world. Through Twitter, I am learning Mumbai. Not just its geographical location, as the Wiki map describes. But the people of Mumbai - their anger against their politicians, their compassion for one another, their passionate concern for their city and for each other.
The power of internet has been much discussed, in more articulate terms than mine. Here is what it brings.
