Mesmerizing Mumbai !!

28CST

The moon’s playing hide-n-seek with its mates,
The ivory cotton candy clouds,
In the playground of the heavenly skies,
Freckled with over a thousand twinkling stars.

I sit awestruck gazing at the heavens above,
While the frothy waves of the serene ocean,
Hit the rocks with ebbs and tides,
Just a few feet away from my toes is the salty sea.

A cutting chai held in my hand,
A spicy vadapav in the other,
Sitting near the sea face at 2 am,
I am absolutely in love with Mumbai !!

The grand buildings with its amazing architecture,
Historic museums, Art Galleries &  Kala Ghoda,
Imagica & Essel world for kiddos at heart,
Bandstand and Nariman point for the romantic souls,
Master Blaster Sachin’s home with Wankhede pitching,
It’s the home to Bollywood and also the Dalal Street.

Our heroes are the dabbawalas who deliver food “with love”,
Here are empowered & independent working females,
Catching the 9:23 pm Local to cook dinner for their families

This City is frenzied with celebrations for Lal Baug ka Raja,
Throbbing with nightlife and also peaceful walks at Carter Road.

Diversity is the norm here, rather than an exception,
Religion and languages blend into “United Mumbai”,
Tantalizing food to savor your taste buds,
Ranging from Bhagwati’s Pav Bhaji to Muhamad Ali Street till midnight.

From fashion street to High Street Phoenix,
Humid summers & Romantic monsoons,
8:23 am’s crowded locals & JVLR Traffic.
Warm hearted people make even a stranger feel at home.

All distances being “5 minutes walking distance”,
Shopping is always on-the-go in local trains & road side hawkers.

It is the “City of Dreams” which keeps you on your toes.

All this and much more,
Awes me all the time,

Mumbai Musings – My Encounter with Kindness

mumbai-marine-drive

“Mumbaiiii” just this one word is enough to personify the vibrant and electrifying spirit of this city. Call it Mumbai or call it Bombay or even call it Bambai just the name is enough to bring a sparkle to your eyes. Mumbai, with its “Always on the go” lifestyle will never fail to show you what dynamism is.  “Static”, “Passive”, “Slow and Steady” are words just absent from the dictionary of this city and every person connected to it. This city never  sleeps. Even at 3 am you can wander around Marine Lines and find hawkers selling you bhel and chaat. At 12 am, Dadar station is as crowded as the Delhi streets at 4 pm. At 5 am you can see people starting their day having small naps in the local trains while commuting to their destinations. EVERYONE and EVERYTHING is ACTIVE here.
