CNN correspondent Mallika Kapur talks to Karamvir Kang, General Manager of the Taj Hotel, who lost his entire family in the attacks and Apoorva Parikh who was dining at the Oberoi hotel that night with his two best friends
It's very easy to survive, to be a survivor, but in the end it's very difficult to live like that.—Apoorva Parikh
Karamvir Kang, General Manager of the Taj Hotel in Mumbai lost his wife and two young sons in the terror attacks. He worked tirelessly through the night of 26/11 trying to save lives while his family burned to death in a sixth floor suite of the hotel.
Apoorva Parikh was dining at the Oberoi Hotel when he was caught up in the terror strikes. He was lined up with a group of 18 people and shot at by the terrorists who left him for dead. He lay underneath a pile of dead bodies, including those of his two best friends for hours. He eventually managed to free himself, drank water from an air conditioning unit to survive, before he was rescued three days after he was shot at. Last year, he spoke exclusively to CNN about his ordeal.
