A student lights a lamp at a condolence meeting for Minal Panchal at the Rizvi Educational Complex in Mumbai, India, Thursday, April 19, 2007. Panchal, 26, a first-year masters' student in the Faculty of Architecture was among the 33 killed in this week's shooting rampage at Virginia Tech. According to news reports, she was a very lovable person who often visited her relatives in Mimbai and Gujarat, including her grand parents who are extremely distraught over this loss. We offer our heartfelt condolences. Why is it that everytime there is a global tragedy, the almighty always chooses an Indian or Indians to be a part of it? If you recall, over 250 innocents of Indian origin perished in the September 11 attacks.
