Waiting at Peddar Road

I was waiting at the bus stop at Pedder road and I could not avoid looking at this great structure that looks like a match boxes, aligned one on the top of another....

If you see the height of the entire building, on regular building it could be up to 60 floors, but since the height of each floor is higher than the regular, the building has only 27 floors and it can be seen from a great distance.

Soon the sky line of pedder road is likely to change. So many buildings clustered togather and new building redeveloped each year, the biggest problem in this area is the traffic jam. 
Mumbai carried out a study on traffic in the area which found that 94,000 vehicles used the route everyday at that time. The same study also found that the average number of cars owned by a family living in Pedder Road is 2.3
Mumbai’s roads are choking really fast. Datar thinks he has the solution. “Traffic Demand Management (TDM) is an idea whose time has come,” he says.

I wouldn’t drive on this route during peak hours, it drives me crazy……wish there was some alternate route…….

it is Mukesh Ambani's house...

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.

Whats the Time Please?
