Mumbai, Nov 28: Life in the metropolis is limping back to normalcy, even as security forces are engaged in fierce battle with the militants in south Mumbai.
Despite the directives by government to stay indoors, Mumbaikars, known for their never-say-die attitude, ventured out in large numbers to their work.
The ever crowded local trains, though, were easy to travel in today, with fewer office-goers rushing to their destination.
The attendance at the offices, including banks and government offices was thin, sources said. Shops and establishments opened as usual today, barring those in the areas where operations to flush out the terrorists were on.
Most of the educational institutes and schools were also working, except the ones in south Mumbai.
Markets resumed trading, after remaining closed yesterday.
The country's premier Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) opened with lacklustre trading this morning as the business hub of the financial capital was still in crisis.
