I love Bombay – that’s official. Call the city what you may, my visit to the city of dreams after a gap of 20 years rekindled feelings of nostalgia, history and a pulse of the glitz and glamour that the city had to offer, be it the arc lights or the boardrooms of the Nariman Pointwallas.
I had been to Mumbai to fulfil my duties as the best man for my cousins wedding. The day after the wedding, we decided to go on a typical Mumbai chakkar exploring mainly South Mumbai since we were staying near Pali Hill. Our hotel was between Linking Road and Pali Hill, so we managed to take our first steps around the hill that housed half of the entertainment and business industry of Mumbai (and when I say half, I mean the top half). Taking a walk with my cousin round the hill, we saw massive mansions and five star apartments that would certainly have some star sipping his coffee from his tinted balcony and looking down on us mortals wondering how he/she could ride roughshod over us gawking commoners while zipping out in their Beamers.
Back to the Mumbai Chakkar. I am gonna attach some of the general sights that we experienced and specific images in following posts that deserve a bit more exclusivity.
