not navatri...


Sorry to disappoint my admiring reader who blasted me for yesterday's photo.. but still no Navatri! You see.. this blog is a relection of daily life... and if I don't see it, then it can't go up here!

But in the meantime, here's a smoggy polluted view of 'town' seen from the Salt Water Grill on Marine Drive.

Has Bombay (i prefer to call it that) been so polluted!!

I am shocked to see such foggy skyline. What is government doing about it?

What is those half naked people doing there?

I think it's actually "Navratri" i.e. Nav = Nine and Ratri = Nights. So, 9 nights.

You should not expect Slain to use/know the correct terms everytime. Don't you know how beautiful blog s/he has put together? Everyone is enjoying it so well. People like you and Anon1 are spoiling the whole fun.

look around for beautiful pictures. Couples are riding bike together, couples are trying to find their own time & space. How wonderful!

I wish I could see such heartwarming scene where I am right now.

out4fun.. thanks for the correction, I actually did spell it wrong by mistake.. but I still spell it differently than you as I have seen it this way on billboards and all over the internet as Navaratri! http://www.hindujagruti.org/hinduism/festivals/navaratri/

b_there --- Mumbai has a horrible problem with pollution. For most of the year it is pretty smoggy like in this photo. In town, where this photo was taken the have banned rickshaws in an aim to help with pollution, but doesn't seem to make much difference. Other than that, I don't believe there is much going on to deal with it.

I have no idea what the people were doing in the middle of the water on that platform.. maybe fishing?

Looks like you chanced upon the website of some Hindu version of the religious right in your weblink.

Chitranjan, you should get off your high horse and lose the hoity toity attitude. In no way was I criticising Slaint. Slaints reply should prove that to you. I am a big fan of this blog as many of my comments will show.

You may not be the type who likes anyone correcting you. I personally wouldn't be insulted if someone corrected me if I was not rightly pronouncing their language.

It does me proud to know that a foreigner finds the sights of my city worth her while. It's time we Indians (you in particular) stopped being so tight assed. So there! And oh.... go ride a bike!

Slaint, thank you for accepting my comment for what it was. I was just trying to be helpful. I think the Hindi way of writing, "Navratri" or "Navaratri" would be the same. It's the English that changes it. I think!

After going through literally ALL the posts on your blog, I missed India so much and googled all the Indian photo blogs, daily blogs from Bangalore, and other cities. I must say, none of them come as close to yours in expression and what each photo speaks in volumes in your blog. Please keep posting pictures and also do write that little story about that picture. It is very interesting.

Dear Slaint

The pic is too good.

Guys, I'm visiting bombay right now. It's not that bad at all. I am really enjoying the life in Bombay. It's much better than what it used to be few years ago. When I used to land from US, I would feel suffocated a few years ago. Not any more. Pollution is definitely less as compared to 5 years ago.

Slaint, are you getting ready for the Diwali blast yet ????

Love this city and love this blog.
Keep going ... always ... in the true spirit of Bombay.
