As day breaks over Mumbai #SkywatchFriday

Today is the last day of the Merry month of May. It seems that gloom has descended on my city with the first grey morning.

The Koel is still cooing her summer story and the roads are free of traffic.

A quiet peace welcomes the new day.

As we welcome the grey clouds over the city of Mumbai.

This year our city has been unusually hot and we are already facing depleted water reserves.

Let’s hope the rains bring respite.

Sharing these thoughts and photos with skywatchers from all over the world on #SkywatchFriday.

Happy weekend

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. The skies look so grim. But I also see some kind of reddish tree in bloom. I am not familiar with the koel and I found a video of its song. Nature tries to prosper even in the most trying of conditions. The weather is so unbalanced, though. If we could combine your weather and our weather and average it out, maybe things could be better for both of us.
