New Delhi, Nov 27 (ANI): An exhibition of paintings on the last year's Mumbai terror attacks drew hundreds of art lovers here on Thursday.

The painters dealt with various themes on the Mumbai terrorist strikes at the India Gate, a war memorial in the heart of Delhi.

Seema Kohli, a painter tried to depict how terror tried to be pervasive the world over.I have tried to depict here that how peace has been invaded by the feeling of terror all over. It was very universal feeling, which we feel it was not what happened in Mumbai in 26/11 but it is basically something which is happening all the time everywhere," said Kohli.

Another painter J.R. Rana said that he wanted to express his anxiety over the way terrorism was spreading across the world.

"I have specially come here to be the part of this exhibition because I was hurt by the way the terrorism is spreading across the world," said Rana.

Ten gunmen had landed on Mumbai shores by boats at sunset on November 26, 2008 and fired randomly inside a railway station, a Jewish settlement, a cafe and two luxury hotels.

Several people were held hostage for the next three days and at least 166 died before commandoes smoked out the last of the terrorists on November 28 last year. (ANI)
