Photo Trail Through Mumbai Metro

Mumbai Metro is finally here after seven years of construction and Mumbai city is proud of it.

A big crowd waited excitedly at the railway platform, young, old, women with children. 

Everybody wanted to experience the fun ride in chak-a-chak, cool metro between Versova to Ghatkopar

 Train arrived..people jumped in and they soon realized that metro travel experience differed from Mumbai local..

People prefered to stand and enjoy the view from big glass windows and watch mumbai city as metro moved through the shiny glass buildings, through cluster of slums on the hills, above express highways and crowded market places.

Up above,were the huge airplanes taking off at regular intervals, down below, were the familiar roads where ppl had spend hours cursing traffic hazards

The Children preferred to sit on the little seat by the window

There were graphic and art everywhere, even at ticket counters

It felt good to float freely above...In 20mins ride..the story of mumbai unfolded, exposing its true belly....

No comments:

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?
