Mumbai…unlike MUMBAI

I am an Indian.But unlike most of the Indian common man(though I am that),I have never really been keen on visiting Mumbai.The city has an image of being the busiest city in the country..and it rightly is so.I hate places where people are always rushing to be somewhere.I hate crowd,and I hate sweat.That is why I never went to Mumbai,only as a child,but never after that.Until last week…

And I loved it.I went on a Sunday…early in the morning,in Colaba.With my camera in hand after many days,it was a treat for me.All the facades were still of the old buildings…and I saw the charm that people always said Mumbai had.Being a Sunday morning,the streets were not crowded at all! I saw many structures that had survived terror attacks over the year.It was a different feeling altogether.

I may go on forever about the day…but they say a picture is worth a thousand words…So here are a few snapshots of my day in the city of Mumbai…that I liked!

  1. Awesome pictures. If the feel of the city is true to the feel of your pictures, I can’t wait to go there. I’ll get to India someday. My ancestors left there so long ago. It’s a much different place from the one they left, especially places like Mumbai. Thanks for the glimpse.
