Few will have forgotten the terrible scenes in Mumbai in November 2008, when terrorists attacked the city, and images of smoke billowing from the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower hotel filled TV screens across the globe.

The 50 hours of trauma, concentrated in the popular tourist areas of south Mumbai, left 173 people dead and more than 308 injured. It also caused serious damage to high-profile buildings. Also hit were the Oberoi Mumbai and Leopold Café on Colaba Causeway, popular with tourists and locals alike.
