The parking lot at the Gateway of India might be cleared of bloodstains and the gold and diamond shops near Zaveri Bazaar might be back in business, but as India's most resilient city recoups from the horror of Black Monday, the prognosis is chilling. The twin bombings, which killed 52 people and left 178 wounded in the most destructive attack since the serial bomb blasts of a decade ago, are unlikely to be the last.

As an expert in terror surveillance, IB's former deputy director A.V. Karnik voices what the city's cops privately admit. "This is certainly not the last blast. They are set to continue," he says, adding, "Mumbai is becoming a target for a network of terrorist groups since they have tasted success here."
