Ideally, I'd call it Bombay. A city that I was born and bred in. No matter where I go, I always want to come back home. So, a pictorial post to the city I love was a given. I am sharing some snapshots of South Mumbai. These are much loved tourist spots. Every time you see them, you learn something new.
Right from being handed in dowry to being held at ransom, Mumbai has seen it all. A city that harbors dreams like no other, you can't escape its charms. Once you visit Mumbai, you've made it a part of your life for good.

|The Naval Dockyard, every bit regal.|
|Flora Fountain, splendour spelt.|
One of the most beautiful fountains in Mumbai, named after the Roman Goddess Flora. Not the one you can throw a coin into though.
|Rajabai Clock Tower, hear the bells chime|
Mumbai's own Big Ben stands in the Universtity Campus. Built by a son for his blind mother so she could eat dinner on time as per religious requirements.
|Gateway of India, history redefined|
famous landmark bears testimony to a history she can't change.

A Sufi Saint who made Mumbai his home and loved it so much, that his casket came floating back to these very waters. Reminds me why my umblicial chord with this city can never be cut, ever.
