This article is more than 12 years old.

A doctor who lives in Arlington has been sending updates from Mumbai since the terror attacks began.

Arun Shanbhag is an assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at Harvard Medical School. He's visiting his parents who live a block from the Taj Hotel where much of the fighting took place.

Almost from the start, Dr. Shanbhag has been posting photos and commentary on his blog, and sending updates via Twitter.

From Mumbai, he joins WBUR's Bob Oakes to talk about how his personal observations are turned into 'citizen journalism.'

This program aired on December 1, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
