Step exercise #WordlessWednesday

Step exercises take on an entirely new meaning when one uses the stairs to access the skywalk at Nana’s Chowk. This busy intersection in South Mumbai is so foolishly made that most people prefer to risk being run over to cross the road rather than take the steps which do not really take you across …

Night watch from my balcony #WordlessWednesday

I often indulge in night watching from my balcony especially after dinner. The other night,  I was busy shutting doors and windows after a particularly satisfying dinner. I looked out of the balcony and saw a glow in the dark. Staring out, I saw this ghostly looking column leaping out of the darkness. It looked …

Eating out on Chowpatty is a quintessential  Mumbai experience. When we were little we loved going there and having a patta of sookhi bhel .

Lilies in the Garden #WordlessWednesday

As per my knowledge, these lilies bloom at Easter time and are called Easter Lilies. But Easter is a long way away,so I was quite surprised to see them today. What is more amazing is that they are growing right in front of my car parking space but I didn’t notice them all this while …

Goodbye Lord Ganesh #WordlessWednesday

Last night after dinner we heard the drums beating frenziedly downstairs. So we rushed out to the balcony and saw a sea of orange-clad devotees saying goodbye to Lord Ganesh in a raucous procession. While the festival is for ten days, many households keep him only for one and a half days. (Since we have …

Happy morning walkers #WordlessWednesday

While waiting with Ms Papaya for the bus, I cam upon this happy group of morning walkers. These three handsome Labradors are old but are still sprightly. The Labrador remains my all time favourite breed as they are affectionate, mild and even tempered. I would love to have one at home and might give in …

#WordlessWednesday – A Garden Snail

Last week in the garden we came upon this snail . It was a wonder because for many years our gardens were invaded by huge African snails that were more destructive than we imagined. I don’t know what the name of this snail is but it didn’t tuck his head in shyly as most of …

Dizzy Heights #WordlessWednesday

With skyscrapers being more the norm than the exception, many workers have to scale dizzy heights to keep exteriors clean. My heart was in my mouth as I saw these two men cleaning the wall of a building across from mine. And, suffering from Acrophobia myself, I was scared . After all, the drop was …
