  • Description

    BOMBAY REMAINS CALM IN THE UNDECLARED WAR AS CIVIL DEFENCE PREPARATIONS INCREASE AND APPEALS GROW FOR BLOOD DONATIONS FOR THE INDIAN TROOPS FIGHTING ON THREE FRONTS.

    PEOPLE ARE GOING ABOUT THEIR WORK THOUGH THEY ARE AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF AIR RAIDS.HOWEVER, BEING MUCH FURTHER SOUTH, BOMBAY SHOWS NO SIGNS OF THE WAR NERVES THE CITIZENS OF DELHI AND KARACHI ARE UNDERGOING AS THE SIRENS ANNOUNCE THE APPROACH OF ENEMY AIRCRAFT.

    IN BOMBAY, THE SIRENS WHINE BUT FOR AIR RAID PRACTICE ONLY.BUT AS MANY PRECAUTIONS ARE BEING TAKEN AS POSSIBLE - BLACKOUT IS ENFORCED AT NIGHT, OFFICES CLOSE EARLY AND THE CITY TRANSPORT STOPS AT BINE IN THE EVENING.

    AT LOCAL HOSPITALS, EMERGENCY ARRANGEMENTS ARE READY TO CARE FOR AIR RAID CASUALTIES.BOMBAY, WITH ITS LARGE POPULATION OF FOREIGN RESIDENTS, EMPLOYS MAY OF THEM IN THE HOSPITALS.TODAY MANY MORE HAVE JOINED AS VOLUNTEERS IN THE HOSPITAL SERVICE.

    APART FROM THE WAR NEWS, ALL-INDIA RADIO AND THE NEWSPAPERS ARE CARRYING ANNOUNCEMENTS CALLING ON THE POPULATION TO DIG TRENCHES FOR PROTECTION, AND KEEP A WATCH ON THE SKIES FOR ENEMY PARACHUTE DROPS, PARTICULARLY NEAR AIRFIELDS AND MILITARY BASES.

    SO FAR THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE COMMUNAL TROUBLE IN INDIA AT THE PRESENT TIME.BUT THE 50 MILLION MOSLEMS LIVING IN INDIA, LIKE THE HINDUS IN PAKISTAN, ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY ANXIOUS.DEFEAT OR KILLER AIR RAIDS ON ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER COULD SET OFF WAVES OF VIOLENCE BETWEEN THE TWO COMMUNITIES.
