Why are we covering the Mumbai story in such detail?

We are covering the terrorist tragedy in Mumbai in much detail today because Mumbai is the outsourcing capital of India. Simply its the biggest offshoring destination for high quality outsourcing.

Loads of blue chips use it to outsource and it would affect Western economies, that are already under financial pressure, in a big way if data centres were shut down because of what’s happening in Mumbai.

From a media perspective we are using Twitter and search term Mumbai with the hash tag (#) to bring you the latest information from Mumbai. Rumour has it the Indian Government are trying to block this search term as it could hamper the military operation.

As far as I know Mumbai is more like the Financial Capital of India - more like New York. And Bangalore and Chennai are like the Silicon Valley - where IT offshoring happens mainly.
