Walking down Marine Drive on Sunday evening
Marine Drive is my favourite part of Mumbai especially at daybreak and at sunset. I’ve just returned from a 6.6 km walk down this sea face famous for its twenty foot wide pavement and Art Deco lined buildings. At the far end of the road is the posh Oberoi Hotel and the Tata Tower sharing a wall between that bastion of culture the National Centre of Performing Arts where the glitterati can be seen mingling with their bling in equal proportion to the cognoscenti who clap at the right pauses at a Western music concert.
I love walking down this promenade especially on a Sunday evening when the whole world seems out, shooting the breeze.
It is one place where everyone and everything seems appropriate – the hawkers ,the lovers, the strollers, the walkers, the stalkers, the druggies ,the groupies ,the pie dogs ,the pedigrees, the vagrants , the families ,the loners, stock brokers and businessmen, bankers and housewives in chappals and sandals, high end sneakers, in saris, in burqas, in Ts and Bermudas.
