Mumbai, July 12:
It was a sea of white as mourners thronged crematoriums and funeral homes across Mumbai to bid a final goodbye to those who perished in Tuesday's serial bomb blasts on suburban trains in Mumbai.

Several localities in suburbs like Goregaon and Borivali were home to to many of the dead, and as their families, neighbours and friends made their way to condole the bereaved, an eerie silence prevailed over normally bustling neighbourhoods.

"What have they (terrorists) got by killing innocent college going boys? We fail to understand their mentality," said one such mourner.

Meanwhile, the BMC lent a helping hand and announced that all funeral services would be free of cost keeping in mind the scope of the tragedy that struck this teeming metropolis.

Most of the people who lost their relatives, earlier heaved a sigh of relief as the identified bodies were handed over to relatives without any hassles after completion of due formalities.

Even as relatives were busy preparing for the last rites, rain gods also joined them in the mourning, lashing occasional showers all during the day.
