Shaken, but not stirred: they stayed to help


Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) is an ecosystem in itself, with commuters, stall owners and taxi drivers sharing space in the bustling zone.

And for all these people, time stood still on Thursday evening.

Arogyanathan, a Hyderabad resident who had come to Mumbai on work on Thursday, was shaken up by the bridge collapse. “I was walking from CSMT towards Kalbadevi when I heard something falling. I thought it’s a portion of some poster. I realised later the bridge had collapsed,” he said. Mr. Arogyanathan will take the next train out of the city on Saturday.
