MUMBAI -- Nearly two years after a series of coordinated terrorist attacks in Mumbai by Pakistani-based militants killed more than 160 people and rocked India's business and cultural center, life has returned to a semblance of normal.
Commuters still use the CST train station. Western tourists and locals still pack Leopold Cafe. The luxury Taj Mahal and Oberoi-Trident hotels, rebuilt from the damage, are persevering.
Life goes on, albeit with a new layer of pat-downs, bag checks and parking restrictions.
