Eid Mubarak

Happy Eid! Today is the final day (i think!) which means time for more gorging of meats on the streets, especially down at Mohamad Ali Road!

Ramazan Meats

A visit to any of the night food stalls set up for breaking the daily fast of Ramazan will give you views of foods you have never seen raw! Here is brain, liver and kidney. Yuck (for me a veg eater!)

Ramazan - Sweets!

Since I am veg, my favorite part of Ramazan are the sweets. We sampled all sorts.. but not this one as it sort of appears to have meat chunks in it!

big pots of meat!

This is seriously a big pot of meat! I think the bowl closest was raw.. but perhaps it was cooked and just really slimy! For meat lovers this is a great time of year.. for those of us veg eaters.. not so yummy!

Shopping season begins!

The season of holidays are upon India with Ramazan going on now and Navratri coming up next with Diwali finishing the season out. It means lots of days off for the locals, lots of eating and of course lots of shopping! This is the season that many families wait for to specifically purchase new clothes, household goods, etc. And there are sales galore!

sleeping in the tree

Isn't it supposed to be 'k-i-s-s-i-n-g' in the tree? People in Mumbai can seriously sleep anywhere! This guy was sound asleep on Juhu Tara Road, which is quite busy not to mention the fact that he is standing in a tree!

Bombay is known for the tiffin carriers or dhabba walas. Unfortunately since the bombings this past weekend, the dhabba wala service has been affected. Apparently some of the bombs were carried in containers such as these, so all the tiffin deliveries have been delayed due to increased security at the train stations.
