Bombay Images

One of the first memorable images during this trip - Dahi Handi on Janmashtami. People were wearing T-shirts sponsored by some Political parties I guess.. The auto passed by just at the right moment, just when the topmost guy was about to break the pot.

Something striking about Bombay... Since I've never lived near the coast, selling fish by the roadside seemed quite unusual. But what caught my eye the most was the shiny nose pin on this pretty lady.

(p.s.: had to photoshop a bit to make a little sense out of my crayon sketches :P)

Marine Drive : My favourite place in Bombay

I just HAVE to have a picture of me whenever I go to a place I like :)

Raining at Powai Lake. Bombay is greener than I expected. Or maybe it's just the monsoon...
