As a totally Westernized city bred Indian brought up on Indian Hindi film and Western Rock, pop and Rap music it was a wonderful free concert of 3 days that introduced all genres of Indian music.The venue festival anchor at the seaside promenade Mr Aman.Sharma kept the crowd busy with his wit and anecdotes. Still better was the venue of the concerts and we residents staying by the seaside rarely appreciate the sea beauty in our own backyard ! The daily Sunset observed from the promenade venue of the festival was appreciated by everyone including the performing artists.The food stalls were doing roaring business and the "Worli Fish Koliwada" stalls exposed the locality to the fishing viillage called "Worli Koliwada" ! The Managing Director of "OMCPL" Mr Rahul.Gomes one of the main co-sponsors along with "Shree Sankalp Pratishthan" announced that the "WORLI FESTIVAL" would henceforth be a regular annual affair in Mumbai akin to the "Kala Ghoda" and "Bandra Festivals".The next date of the "Worli Festival " is in January-2017 ..If you have never ever visited the "WORLI FESTIVAL" then be there in January 2017.

Had been on a tour of Aurangabad with "Shikar Vedh tour Group' of Mumbai. During ourr tour we decided to eat street food and with great difficulty managed to discover this classic roadside restaurant.The entire narrow street is clean and lined with various types of eateries.We were a group consisting of 12 tourists and decided to order Kebabs and their "Dum Biryani". It was excellent biryani served in brass utensils with kebabs as starters. If in Aurangabad please vsit this roadside eatery if wanting to taste authentic Aurangabad cuisine.
