SOUL OF MUMBAI
When flight touchdown, a disturbing seed planted into my subconscious mind. Mumbai , the place where Richest man & poorest guy in India share neighbourhood. City start unfolding in never ending traffic. I said to myself the very first minutes in Mumbai , “ I hate this city “. So that negative thought attracted me more & gave me chance to travel more than 3 times now to the different corners of Mumbai . I slowly start to feel the smell & vibe of Mumbai which holds the people of Mumbai to say proud that they are mumbaikar . It’s impossible for them to live without this chaos which have a pattern. Start find excitement in filthy , dirty , messed up part of corners .
This time I happent to fall into soul of Mumbai . Worli, where human packed inside a match box house for shelter.
Before reach to the soul, I spend 3 hrs of day in Taj lands end Hotel where big shots all over the world do relax , business & entertainment. Taj take us to the kings era where you got served anything and everything .
Fresh air Fragrance of flowers, hospitality at peak. Beauty of women will welcome you in Indian traditional way on doorsteps.
Why we need to speak more. If you yawn there will be someone to snap finger for you .Money can take you to the time of King & Queen.
Once we cross the gate of palace you can see the real Mumbai with her colours. Cutting chai , vada Pav , Dubba vala, shining black n yellow taxi & rickshaw. Closed car takes me away from the smell and hotness outside. Romantic horny couples where still sitting on the sea shore. Sun was not a challenge in front of their love. He hide his hands inside her cloths to prevent sun tan & she hide her face to his face. View through the car window was pretty good. Sky scappers on the seashore , couples kissing passionately on highways . Welcome to Mumbai.
To be continue . . .
