Thanks to the official work, I got to visit Mumbai in first week of December....Though I hardly got time, I managed to get a re-look ...managed to meet some of the freinds and visit my favourite place and eating place...

To start with ...Gateway is here...I sometimes wonder had Gateway in Mumbai and India gate in delhi not been there where would I go to cheer myself up???









Phoneix towers in Lower parel....life line of an urban Mumbaikar....








This was the way I used to commute for 2.5 hours everyday











This is the way I used to exercise in the train...which I fondly used to call as my GYM....I have learnt the art of standing on just one toe like in ballet dancing..thanks to local train :))














One of the most memorable night I had in Mumbai was the night when I went to Insomnia in Taj....awesome place












Double decker bus: Its sad that these will become extinct in Mumbai....air at the top is so massive it can blow you away







My home in Mumbai....Savouring Mrinal Da's cooked food....whatever food I can cook I owe it to him....Ashish also joined me there...













Mumbai lights...o man, i love the city









Mumbai city is breeding ground of so many new and innovative ideas like this Ginger hoarding near Mahim...






Ritza accompanied me for quick shopping...and she cooked awesome lunch ......
