SAJA Covering The Mumbai Tourist Attacks With Social Media Tonight

My good friend and colleague Sree Sreenivasan sent out a note earlier today to members of SAJA (the South Asian Journalist Association) about a live webcast that SAJA will be hosting with several thought leaders in response to today’s tragic terrorist attacks in the heart of Mumbai. If you happen to be near a computer tonight between 10pm and 11:30pm EST (8:30am to 10am India time), please use the following links to listen in on the conversation. The guests on the call include Benjamin Piven, former Fulbright Scholar in Mumbai and Suketu Mehta, author, "Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found." Mehta’s book, in particular, was a stunning portrait of the city that I remember reading a few years ago and many of the things he talked about have stayed with me (both good and bad).

Regardless the call should not only be an illuminating discussion of the attacks and reactions from India and abroad, but also a significant example of how social media can be used to bring people together in a moment like this to learn and discuss. Combined with looking at the conversations tagged "#mumbai" on Twitter, it’s amazing what sort of real time updates you can get. Here are the details:

Nov. 26, 10-11:30 pm NY time (8:30-10:00 am India time)
Listen via computer: https://www.blogtalkradio.com/saja/2008/11/27/Mumbai-attacks-webcast-2
or via phone: +1-347-324-5991 (join our conversation there or via the live chatroom)

  1. The Mumbai terrorist attacks, on top of a global economic recession, have come as a double whammy for India’s tourism and hospitality industry. Only 14 of 90 rooms were occupied at one of the top luxury hotels in India’s most popular tourist destination.
