Equal Streets- Mumbai

Equal Streets movement in Mumbai simply rocks!!!! Equal Street movement reflects the spirit, the flamboyance, the creativity, the charisma and the fun loving nature of Mumbai. The Equal Streets initiative brought to Mumbai by NGOs, think tanks, citizens’ association and cycling groups, closes a 6.5km loop to motor vehicles from 7am-11 am every Sunday. The movement will continue till May 31, 2015 and the stretch extends from Bandra’s HP junction down Linking Road before looping back to the junction via SV Road. One can enter this stretch from the points at Linking Road and SV Road in Bandra, Khar and Santacruz.

Usually I prefer waking up late on Sunday but today was an exception. I not only woke up early but reached Linking Road at 7.30 am.

#BringBackTheTouch- Bike Ride

“Ektuku choya lage…ektuku katha shuni” is a Tagore song which explores the sensuality behind touch. A simple and quick touch from a loved one can make one skip a heartbeat. However in today’s fast and furious life we often miss these small moments. Especially with urban couples this is even truer. After 10 years of marriage this is exactly what happened to Ekta and Vishesh. Both were busy with their corporate careers, besides Ekta was also busy with their two kids Nysha and Zen.

Qutab Minar

“Dil ka bhawar kare pukar, pyaar ka raag suno re…….” remember this famous Dev Anand song? The song was beautiful and the picturisation was a marvel. Dev Anand wanted to shoot the song Dil Ka Bhanwar Kare Pukar from his movie Tere Ghar Ke Samne inside the Qutab Minar. However, the cameras in that era were too big to fit inside the tower’s narrow passage, and the song was shot inside a replica of the tower instead.
