Conversations? #WordlessWednesday

Walking through the Kala Ghoda area I came across this interesting sight .

The contrast between the twentieth century animated conversationists in the mural and the bored modern day tourist and the watchful tourist in the mural is quite amazing isn’t it ?

The bylanes of KalaGhoda are being revived with cute boutiques that peddle haute couture and haute cuisine. Almost every day there is something new open up.  I can’t get enough of this place ! No wonder  it has become one of my favourite haunts in the city.

Sharing this photo with Natasha and Esha on #WordlessWednesday.

Have a great Wednesday all!

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!

  1. I have explored very little of Mumbai. But have heard so much about Kala Ghoda that I would love to be there someday. That’s quite an interesting contrast that you have captured.

    Yes, that is quite the contrast. Something tells me a 22nd century mural would not feature the gentleman absorbed in his phone!

      Actually I was a bit late. Just a little while earlier, the watchman and the bored tourist were in conversation…. so that would have been a conversation separated by a century

    Love this place…those magical bylanes that sell stuff from everywhere. I recall buying wooden blocks (for blockprinting) and loads of knock knacks from these lanes two years back. This place has a charm that is unparalleled. Time for another visit, methinks! 🙂 Thank you for joining us this week for #ww, Sunita.

    I love Kalaghoda. Love all the interesting eateries that dot this place and the stalls selling knick-knacks. I hope to attend the Kalaghoda festival some day.

    This is such a fabulous, candid shot. Don’t know why but it has a very theatric feel to it, as though the scene was being enacted by the people present against that beautiful backdrop. I always marvel at pictures like these which are taken without the knowledge of the subjects. I’m not sure I could, as I feel embarrassed I might get caught catching them aware.

    Loved your post, Sunita. Thank you so much for linking up.

      I too find it embarrassed to take candid shots of strangers particularly. I hesitated a bit else it would have been even more dramatic when the modern men were talking to each other !
