Shows on Oberoi Trident and Nariman House will be telecast at 5:30 pm and 6 pm. The special show, Tasveeron Mein 26/11, will showcase a slideshow of the terror attack, along with montage of videos, stills and voices from that dreaded attack last year at 11 pm in the night.

IBN7 managing editor Ashutosh said, “With this special programming on the first anniversary we pay tribute to the brave people who fought to save many by sacrificing their own lives and in a way make each one of us stronger than before.”

Meanwhile, Marathi news channel IBN Lokmat has also planned shows to remember the night. IBN Lokmat editor-in-chief Nikhil Wagle will revisit the wounded lanes of Mumbai in Maza Shahar Mazi Mansa - ek varshanantar (My City, My people – after one year) at 8.30 am.

The channel is urging its viewers to join in its campaign to light a candle in the name of all the victims of that dastardly attack that shattered Mumbai and India a year back. The campaign will include on ground events where people will light candles in memory of those who lost their lives and observe a two-minute silence to pay respect to the victims. The channel will live telecast the campaign from 7 pm onward.
