Iconic Premier Padmini(based on Fiat ) taxi in Mumbai These black and yellow taxis in Mumbai, are integral part of the city's heritage and have been depicted in numerous Bollywood movies. About 20,000 such cabs are still running on the roads of Greater Mumbai.

svegliarsi alle 4 , prendere un taxi fino a Victoria Station , salire su un treno di pendolari e dopo un quarto d’ora scendere alla stazione di Dadar.

Subito fuori c’è il mercato di frutta, verdura e soprattutto fiori ...

E’ ancora buio pesto … camminare in mezzo al caos delle bancarelle in un vicolo stretto circondati da tanta umanità è un’esperienza indimenticabile … .

Si procede a fatica facendosi largo fra mucchi di ortaggi e composizioni floreali , cercando di schivare le grandi ceste di vimini appollaiati sulle teste di venditori e compratori mentre il cielo si rischiara e sorge l’alba su Mumbai ….

e dopo la levataccia come si può resistere al profumo delle frittelle calde e al sorriso di questo "cuoco " ?

A Mumbai (Bombay) ci sono diverse “open laundry” chiamate “dhobi ghat”, qui c’è la più grande del mondo e ci lavorano soprattutto uomini che hanno casa con le famiglie nei pressi e fanno proprio casa-lavoro.

Sono lavanderie tipiche per gli indiani dove oggi porti la biancheria sporca e il giorno dopo ti viene restituita lavata e stirata.

Il Dhobi Ghat è assolutamente imperdibile se passate da Mumbai, si trova nel quartiere di Mahalaxmi

é ormai giorno fatto ma il mercato di Mumbai non conosce soste, siamo arrivati in fondo alla stretta via dove si svolge questo pittoresco e colorato mercato. Gli ultimi posti disponibili vengono occupati da queste donne che vendono sacchi pieni di foglie, utilizzate forse per decotti, tisane o chissà che altro, forse solo da masticare.

Dear friends and colleagues from Flickr.

This is the 7th in the series on the city of Mumbai.

It was not easy shooting these pics from the height I have shot.

Physical risk was involved while shooting this series on Mumbai Skyline.

To say the least, there was no such thing called 'Terrace' or a flat surface area from where I could shoot, there were just small square pillars in the name of terrace of say 20 inches by 20 inches space from which i had to balance myself, aim, shoot and then jump from one pillar to another to move from one corner to another to shoot all the sides of the city.

On top of it there was a lot of wind from all sides, a slight mis - balance on those square pillars while shooting and I would have been thrown 2 floors down.

So risk taken, enjoyed.

It was also my dream to shoot South Mumbai from this height and I am proud of this achievement.

I, thank my friend Javed Mulla for helping me to get access on this location.

Without his contacts, this location and this series wouldn't have been possible.

 

So friends lets me know what you think of these series.

India, ricordi di viaggio

This was shot before I take a left to Dharavi what I like is the sun got covered by the sign board and since I was in the taxi could not wait for another shot .

I'll cross the road anywhere - except here.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is India's busiest railway station - yes where they danced at the end of Slumdog Millionaire.

Probably more important to know that in 2008 terrorists killed 58 people here in part of city wide attacks.

Designed by Gothic loving Victorian Brits, to mark the Golden Jubilee of their Queen, for most of it's life it was known as Victoria Terminus or just VT for short. It was renamed after Marathi 17th Century King Shivaji in 1996.

Seen here in the sweltering dusk light I hope you get a feel of how intense this massive yet intricate structure is - matched only by the massive and intricate populous around it.

 

P.S. Does anyone remember those Richard Scarry children's books? - he MUST have been here.

Monsoon in Mumbai is an odd mix - miserable if you are a commuter, yet awe-inspiring if you are an observer of nature. Mumbai essentially has two seasons, "sweat" and "swim" - and the world has seen many images of this swimming season during the flash floods of 26th July 2005.

 

Yet, if one will take a moment to look upwards, especially around dawn, the sight is one to behold!

 

This photo is one of a series taken just before dawn, at the "magic moment" when the reflected light from the sun hits the clouds before the sun itself rises over the horizon. No spectacular tourist spot this - these photos were shot from the window of a fourth-floor apartment in Bandra's narrow and winding Chapel Road.

Cant believe that on such a beautiful morning Mumbai was facing the worst Terrorist attack ever. I shot this at dawn on the day of the event unaware this was taking place just 10 Km from where I was staying.

 

Tribute to Mumbai and its Martyers

Marine Drive is a 4.3-kilometre-long boulevard in South Mumbai in the city of Mumbai. It is a 'C'-shaped six-lane concrete road along the coast, which is a natural bay. The road links Nariman Point to Babulnath and Malabar Hill. Marine Drive is situated over reclaimed land facing west-south-west. The bay is part of the Arabian Sea.
