As 'Mahatma' Jim Carrey says - B E A utiful. This is the beauty that makes me love Mumbai. Also the city where you can get caught in a traffic jam - any time of the 24 hours given by the God.

In one of the pic the signage says 'rawalpada' .. never knew there was something like that .. Maybe my kumbh ke mele ka bichra hua bhai lives there..

Missing aamchi mumbai big time now
Your name always reminds me of Paresh Rawal my favorite actor. Just see his facial expressions.

I wish I had some company for photography. It was quite difficult to buy time from friends and acquaintances there. As I said life is either easy or busy in Mumbai. the Easy ones were not available too.

Here you go, the videos:



This one is enroute Churchgate on Eastern Expressway somewhere after Sion.
Soundtrack: Slumdog Millionaire.



This one reminds me of movie 'Jannat' and that Black Honda Accord.

Hi Basu,
This was really awesome photologue you got there. Really liked the comparison of Mr. Bachchan and Mr. Basu Sr.

Good to see you back.
You didnt mention of drive from coast to coast?(I may have missed it already)
By now, you may have conquered the "highway hypnosis" syndrome
Neverthless, Mumbai well captured. reminds me of the first job days spent in "Bombay".
