Beautiful Bandra Beckons
Bandra is the queen of the suburbs. Fabled for it’s beautiful people, shopping and it’s glitz and glamour. But did you know it has the oldest road in Bombay and also the oldest church. Come explore a part of Bandra that you never knew existed. Walk through the narrow lanes of villages like Ranwar, take in the aroma of freshly baked PAO from the bakeries and the stench of dry fish. Hear the melodious notes of the guitar, the pealing of the bells or catch the aunties in their maxies haggling in choice Konkani. Seek out the gems of graffiti or the spires of the churches. Climb high to learn of the legends of the lady of the mount and tumble down to lands end and bandstand. Catch sight of where the stars of Bollywood reside and a 5 star hotel past and present.
To experience the sights, sounds and smells of Bandra and to satiate your curiosity and more, come join me as I take you for a walk around Bandra. We start at holy family hospital off hill road properly kitted out with shoes, bottle and cap. The walk will take about 3 hours at a leisurely pace with a climb up the hill and conclude at Bandstand.

The Night is Young
Bombay is a city which never sleeps. I invite you to join me in a walk that explores the metropolis all lit up and ready to party.
We will start at 7 pm when Mumbai is at it’s duskiest, finished with the rigours of the work day and ready to party. The lights are just starting to come on like jewels and the fun begins.
We start under the canopy of stars at the main booking hall of CST station, a world heritage site and one of the busiest train stations in the world that is undergoing a makeover like an ageing diva getting a face lift. We then proceed past the GPO, a dak ghar inspired by the Gol Gumbaz of Bijapur, the Bazaar gate of the erstwhile fort and an eatery that precedes the station itself. We then go past Azad maidan,our very own Hyde Park past the two tata mansions. We go past the venue of the first cricket test match and the birthplace of eggs Kejriwal. Next we come to the Cross maidan and the Parsi kuaa or well. We then take a turn keeping fountain behind us towards Churchgate. We admire the statuesque Victorian marvels of the high court and university adorning the fringes of the oval. Then come the western railway headquarters and Churchgate station with the Eros theatre providing a triangle of different delights. We then walk to the sea face with the Brabourne Stadium and the Ambassador hotel standing as sentinels. We conclude our journey at the Queen’s necklace and enjoy the cool monsoon breeze.
