Every Indian remembers this day. The 26th of November 2008 was the day when the streets of Mumbai were filled with terror and a cloud of fear loomed all over. 2020 marks 12 years since the 26/11 attack in Mumbai took place. Remembering the attack of 26/11, Ratan Tata shared a picture of Taj Mahal hotel and posted it with a caption that read, “We Remember.”

The Indian industrialist and former Chairman of Tata Sons, Ratan Tata took to his Instagram in order to pay tributes to the brave fighters and martyrs of the Mumbai attack. “The wanton destruction that took place 12 years ago today will never be forgotten. But what is more memorable, is the way Mumbai as a diverse people came together, casting aside all differences, to vanquish the terrorism and destruction on that day. Today, we certainly can mourn the ones we lost and honour the sacrifice of the brave who helped conquer the enemy, but what we must applaud, is the unity and the acts of kindness and sensitivity which we should cherish, and which hopefully, will continue to shine in the years ahead,” said Tata on his post.
