On July 25, murderous terrorists struck the peaceful, cosmopolitan tech hub of Bangalore. The terrorists aim was to cause fear and inflict economic damage to the increasingly prosperous Indian society. The tech sector in India’s Silicon Valley paused, took stock of the situation and bravely soldiered on. Even on the day of the attack while some mobile phones did not work for short periods, landlines and internet worked well. Many tech-savvy locals ‘twittered’ to keep in contact.
