Mumbai calling ...

Mumbai .. the maximum city as it is known is a truly inspiring place .. I've always loved visiting Mumbai and it always leave me awestruck ... :)

Sharing a few snaps from one of my recent trips to this amazing city ...



We traveled from Pune by the 'Deccan Queen' express which has been running on this route for 82 years now ... what a legacy... Loved everything from the people and their spirit around to the pantry car and it's delicacies ... :)

The route goes via the beautiful lonavla-khandala ghats which were in full glory during this monsoon season. The wada-pav at karjat and the coffee from PC is a must have while enjoying the monsoon sights of the ghats.




We reach the CST - Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus in Mumbai which is a very impressive edifice. It also houses the Railway offices. We walk from there to the flora fountain or fort area. The entire area is sprinkled with lots of impressive looking old and new buildings of great importance. So beautiful yet sadly so vulnerable to attacks ...




From there we head to the Marine Drive to check out the amazing Mumbai skyline.
On the way back we were able to see the 'Rajabai Towers' designed after the Big Ben of London, this clock tower is situated near University of Mumbai campus. The poor little common man of India - made famous by the cartoonist - R.K Laxman makes for a beautiful view. Just like it's cutout, the common man of India really seems to be lost in the hustle-bustle of the big city and its bigger politics.



And it was back to Pune with plans of more visits and more places to see .... :)
