Bombay – Meri Jaan

Photos of a few must-see places that are off the beaten path in Bombay-Mumbai – the liveliest city in the world!

Most of the places above are so off-the-beaten-track that a hardcore Bombayite like me saw them for the first time after decades of living in and loving this city!

More photos of more places to follow soon.
