Kings Circle: Aurora

I've decided to focus this week's daily photoblog on my 'hood, Kings Circle. It sits on the northern edge of the island city, between Matunga and Sion. Kings Circle is the center of the city's Tamil community (reflected in the photo) and home of the world's best masala dosas and South Indian filter coffee. It's also the best place (north of the Colaba Causeway) to shop for used and pirated books. Like many Mumbai locales, the circular park that once gave the area its name was recently stripped of its Anglo moniker - it's now Maheshwari Udyan. But everyone still knows the area as Kings Circle.

This photo was taken at the Aurora Theatre - the best place to catch a shoot-em' up Tamil film, plus a few Bollywood blockbusters.
