The more time I spend in Mumbai, the more I see how people's lives here revolve around the local trains.

Everything from prepping food, catching up on the news , being lost in your phone, to day dreaming is done on the trains and platforms!

One my favourite things about Bombay is how the cool sea breeze whilst sitting at Marine Drive never fails to uplift one's mood irrespective of how the day went!

Double decker transport has survived in Mumbai, just that now instead of double decker trams we have double decker buses!

Whilst walking in Ballard Estate, this feline's light green eyes were hypnotic enough to make me forget all about the beautiful architecture around me!

For a photo any closer, I would literally have to be in the middle of Mumbai traffic!

The Khada Parsi statute in Byculla, Mumbai is dedicated to Seth Cursetjee Manockjee( 1763-1845), an imminent Parsi personality.
It once stood at the centre of a road junction and was a common meeting point for those new in the city.

It's an absolute beauty of a statute perched on top of Corinthian pillar with sculptures of four mermaids surround the its base and is also said to be one of only two such statures in the world, the other being halfway across the world in Chile!

Much to the credit of the BMC, a whopping amount of one core has been spent to restore this 40 feet statute from the 1860s!

For reasons a little uncertain, the man's hands caught my attention whilst on the local train.

While a seemingly simple photograph, there was a lot of thought involved in the depth of field involved.
While I wanted the subject's hand to shine through, I couldn't take away from the photo the surroundings of a Mumbai local train, so I kept the aperture at f/5.

Apart from that, I had to factor in the rickety movement of the train in my camera's shutter speed so as to avoid any blur in the photo.

Apart from the above, you have to move fast while clicking in a city known for its rapid movement, so being on your toes and keeping an eye out for unexpected frames always helps!

26th January 1950

The day we'd earned our long denied right of being governed by our own sovereign law, it was the day our Constitution came to life.
It was the day our country truly became our own.

It's also the day when India's military might is showcased to the whole world in all the pride that a country can collectively muster and that brings us to the present photo.

The Gateway of India is the place where the last of the British troops were sent off in ceremony and exactly a year after that, was the first time a parade was put up by our soldiers at the Gateway!
