14 Hours: An Insider's Account Of The 26/11 Taj Attack is a first person account of the terrors that plagued Mumbai city on November 26th, 2008. A series of coordinated terrorist attacks targeted in the Taj Mahal palace and hotel in Colaba, and the author was an operations management trainee with the same hotel during that fateful night. A faithful narrative, 14 Hours: An Insider's Account Of The 26/11 Taj Attack is a lucid narration of the events from one of the fortunate survivors of the horrendous attack by terrorists from LeT, or Lashkar-e-Taiba--one of the largest terrorist organisations in South Asia. The horror began with six explosions at strategic locations in the hotel, and soon thereafter hostages were taken and at least thirty one people were killed in the three day battle that ensued, including many foreigners. Intricate details about the event have been written down from the author's point of view, such as the interiors of the hotels, his interaction with his colleagues and the guests on that night, the angstful conversations, and others. Written in a simple and candid manner, 14 Hours: An Insider's Account Of The 26/11 Taj Attack paints a truthful portrait of the infamous incident. This edition was published by Rupa Publications in 2012, and is available in paperback.
