My heart goes out to the people of Mumbai. For those people who have seen a lot of violence and tragedies. It is sad when you come to think of how it must affect each individual living there one incident after the other. It definitely has a lasting affect on a person's brain consciously or unconsciously.
Whether it was the Mumbai stampede in 2017 or the Mumbai floods, Mumbai has seen and tolerated a lot. People won't question about numbers but would rather focus on the word, 'why'. Why do we need to suffer one after the other? On this day of 29 December 2017, Mumbai cried again.
At around 12:30 AM, a massive fire broke out at Kamala Mills, Mumbai. Their tragedy is our tragedy and we are there for Mumbaikars.
A short circuit caused the fire in a rooftop restaurant, One Above pub, located on the third floor of the Trade House Building in Kamala Mills compound. 14 people have reportedly died during this incident.
BJP MP Kriti Somaiya blames BMC for this unfortunate event.
The 29-year-old Khushboo who was celebrating her birthday during midnight lost her life due to this incident.
As per Dr. Harish Pathak, deaths were caused due to inhaling the fumes and not by the fire. He was also quoted saying that a proper evacuation system could have saved lives.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter and wrote his heartfelt condolences to those who were affected by this incident and wished for those who were injured for a quick recovery.
President Ram Nath Kovind also took to Twitter and tweeted for the recovery of those who were injured and expressed his grief for those who lost their lives.
One of the citizens took to Twitter and shared his point on BMC and how things could have been better.
As they say, precaution is better than cure. Although this video is old, such fire blowouts should be done with due precautions in place. We do believe that the government will definitely take actions and make preventive measures towards the betterment of people.
