“Aye dil hai mushkil jeena yahaan
Zara hatke , zara bachke
Yeh hai Bombay meri jaan…”
After seeing my city of dreams burn all through the night, I thought I would write something thoughtful. Something to condemn the horrific killings, the Government apathy and something that would make us stronger. But then, why write about something that has already haunted us for the whole day. I simply went back to my favorite places in Mumbai…
The Gateway of India at Dusk..
The Taj Palace at night
The Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Railway Terminus… formerly Victoria Terminus.
The Bombay Municipal Headquarters.
The Asiatic Library
The Flora Fountain, Fort.
The Marine Drive.
The Rajabai Clock tower and a BEST Bus.
The Mount Mary’s feast, Bandra.
Haji Ali – Mumbai’s most revered.
A Qawalli session at the Haji Ali.
Siddhivinayak Temple, Mumbai’s Presiding Deity.
Nariman Point, Mumbai’s financial hub.
The Bandra – Worli Sea Link.
And Finally… two things that’ll make a Mumbaikar Smile…
The Mumbai Local.. !!!
And One last.. for the Famed Mumbai Spirit !!
This man is braving the deluge to deliver the Bharat gas canisters in a flooded slum area of Mumbai. This alone should sum up what I mean…
I can’t go on anymore..
