Mumbai is best known as the City Of Dreams. A city, where people come with their dreams, making it big in life. A city, where every shade of the life can be visible. It was my first ever visit to Mumbai. The moment I landed, I was amazed by everything passing by. Be its incredibly beautiful Marin Drive, those Colonial Architectures, the Overcrowded Local Trains, Double Decker Buses, the Dabbawalls, Chaotic Traffic, Amazing Street Food, and the Docks with Fishermen or be the Fast Paced Life. One can get everything in one big place. Mumbai not only gives you the glimpse of its multi-layered lifestyle, but gives you enough reasons to fall in love with it.

Glimpses of Mumbai
When the pigeons take off to the sky, the cold breeze just touches you , you feel the rain drops on your face and you see the iconic architecture, one cannot stay away from capturing the moment.
One of the tourist attractions in Mumbai is Gateway of India. More than the structure, what I liked was the surrounding of the place. The sound of pigeons, wind, waves and ferry, add to the beauty of Gateway Of India.
Nariman point of Mumbai is undoubtedly my favorite place in the city. This is one place where I can spend hours after hours staring at the sea.
Mumbai has fascinated me in many ways, specially the colonial structures in South Mumbai. I was amazed by the structures, which are still standing tall and give glimpses of Bygone era.
Mumbai looks exceptionally beautiful in Monsoon. In one of those rainy days, I noticed the taxi driver, whom I found very interesting and decided to capture him with his Kali Pili Taxi.
I really like the transition when sun hides behind those waves and darkness falls and you see those tiny lights in the houses from a distance.
It is said that Mumbai never sleeps. And I experienced the same. The fast moving life on the roads of Mumbai was one of those first things which I noticed in Mumbai.
I was fascinated by almost everything in Mumbai. The lifestyle , people , culture, architecture , food , landscape , and most importantly the spirit of every Mumbaikar. It gave me all the reasons to be a part of the city. And finally it made me fall in love with this city.
