Rooftop Views in Mumbai

Global views

During monsoon, going out for walks along the Bandra sealink promenade is less than appealing.

On days when sitting at the computer working at home, I try to take a break to run up and down the stairs in my building just to get the blood pumping for a few minutes.

As a reward, sometimes when the rain abates slightly, I step out to our rooftop…

The air may be polluted but there is something about seeing the cityscape and sealink in the distance that makes one breath a little deeper. Looking up, I can sometimes spot kites spread their powerful wings and soar above the crows.

Then I head over to the other side for a completely different view. A tarp town… impossible to see the narrow winding lanes between the homes of the old village, covered with blue tarps and old plastic signs pined down with rocks.

Two different perspectives… one city, one village from one rooftop.

  1. I like both shots. The first is quite atmospheric, and the second soooo India.
