Mumbai ka maal 5

"Andheri se Bandra , Bandra se Dadar , Dadar se Mumbai Central ... " - Whatever you ratto-fied (Yes yes that is Hindi for manappadam ) or failed to ratto-fy in your school days, this you will when you spend some time in Mumbai travelling by trains. That's the monotonous train arrival announcement in the Western Railway platforms.

You will curse the system, abused in Marathi by ladies in the I class but at you cannot survive in the city without the local trains. Harbour line is the worst of the three - one drop of rain and the tracks get flooded. Central railway is very galeej. The crowded WR that is Western Railway is my choice. Hardly get to travel by train these days but I do miss my train travel once in a while.

Some coasters I had picked up from Loose Ends in Bandra.

Our weekend haunt for provisions, veggies, Kumudam, Ananda Vigadan, Idli maavu, Dosai, Idli and Tamizh cinema...

From Avaraikkai to A.K 47... everything available at..

One of these is 'engaloda ' station..

Designer Krsna Mehta has some stuff on the city - good to see, horribly expensive to buy but I like, very Bambaiyya you see- ayyo sorry Thackareyji, very Mumbaiyya, you see.
