Mumbai usually spends its day off at Juhu beach, Gateway of India and Chowpatty. But this Sunday, they took their cameras and went to the triple blast sites.

"We went to Zaveri Bazaar and Opera House in the morning. We had gone earlier as well but the police had cordoned it off. The Zaveri Bazar site was open but Opera House was still cordoned off," said Tushar Mehta, 23, a Juhu resident.

Disaster tourism, now a part of the aftermath of any terror attack here, began early this time.

Sonia Shah, 18, and her friends headed to the spot a day after the attacks. But what about the fear of going to a place where several have died.

"Since the blasts had already taken place, I knew it would be safe," added Shah.
