Update: SJSU reacts to Mumbai attacks

SJSU mourns Mumbai

Media Credit: Mike Anderson, The Spartan Daily — Pavan Kumar Yalamanchili, a general engineering masters student, writes a message on a poster in remembrance of victims of the attacks in Mumbai, India, during a gathering near the Event Center on Tuesday.

SJSU’s student newspaper The Spartan Daily had amazing coverage this morning of some students whose lives were personally affected by the attacks in Mumbai, including a student whose parents worked two blocks from the attacks. Though they survived, some of his friends’ friends didn’t.

The article cites a handful of students who knew people who died. Hearing what these students have to say makes it all the more real to me, because I don’t have any personal connection to India or Mumbai in particular. That’s why I’m looking forward to hearing the “podcast open mic” that Steve Sloan is coordinating on campus in Clark Hall room 116 at 4:30 p.m. today. If you can make it and have something to say, please do.

    I attended it. I felt the need to arrange it so, I asked Steve for the same. You’ll get to read it tomorrow in Spartan Daily and the podcast would be available not until Friday, I believe. You should have been present.
