MONEY" is the root cause of disintegration or feuds in every large family whether a commoner or the "FIRST POLITICAL FAMILY OF MUMBAI" , the "THACKERAYS". As a student of "POLITICAL SCIENCE" i could safely name without fear of "DEFAMATION SUITS" of a few rags to riches stories from Politicians to Industrialists who owed their wealth and definitely Political power to being affiliated to the "SHIV SENA" and Late "Bal.Thackeray. Its bizarre and unbelievable that the Thackeray family "Dirty Linen" is being washed in public over crumbs of wealth that seem miniscule compared to the "Chela's" of the Thackeray's. Real life is bizarre and at time unbelievable
The property dispute in Mumbai’s most influential political family is out in the public domain.

The truth of a part of real life erotica and living in Mumbai that's nothing to be embarrassed about.but also rapidly vanishing. Chawls are being gradually replaced by apartments.
Over 9.5 million humping and heaving bodies officially live in one-room homes with paper-thin walls, and sniggering aunties. This makes sex pretty awkward to say the least.

You can visit Leh till September before the mountain highway closes due to snow. One of my most memorable and Adrenalin Junkie tour completed on Thursday(7-7-2016). If you want to test your driving skills on a motorcycle or car then this road might take you to heaven or hell or back safely home. Try it once in your lifetime.

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.
