Mumbai is not a city, it is an emotion.
Took a break from studies, quenched my thirst to travel, I set off for the city of dreams on a short 2 days trip with a bunch of friends.
If you haven’t been on the train from Pune to Mumbai, you are missing out on one extremely beautiful experience.
The lush green mountains, valleys, waterfalls on the outside and delicious local snacks with good people on the inside, the train ride was nothing but brilliant.
Mumbai had the most welcoming vibe ever and as we got closer to the distant mumbai skyline it gave me chills as I was returning to my birthplace after sixteen long years.
Waves of serenity and peace freshen you up while you enjoy the sun set into the Arabian Sea and you wonder how you sat there for hours without even realising.
A concise city tour was what followed; Gateway Of India, Taj, Wada Pav, Frankies, Pav Bhaji at Chaupati, CST, Nariman Point. All done in 5 hours. 2:00am, back to Marine drive. Peace!
Not even one full day had passed and I was already in love with the place. We drove back to Pune, and I was at loss for words for the overwhelming sight, the scenic beauty I had laid my eyes on, it reminded me of one thing ‘some moments aren’t for the camera, they are for you’
Mumbai is not a city, it is an emotion, indeed.
On the night that followed, I asked myself ‘What if I had never shifted from this place? Wouldn’t it have been great to watch Bombay grow, as I grew?’
