In search of answers !!!

मुजमे एक आवाझ है ऐसि,
सांसे बेखबर, खबर रुह (soul) को जिस्की |

भीद मे इस तन्हाइ के सबब (reason) क्या है?

बूंदो कि इस प्यास के अतित (history) क्या है?

अतुट है जब पर्छाइ (shadow) तो रात के अंदाझ क्या है?

झिंदगि है जुआ (gambling) तो हार के मलाल (regret) क्या है?

Bombay Diaries – Vasai Fishermen Colony

Clicked at by-lanes of Vasai Fort, walking through fishers men’s colony, leading to the beach. Some one has painted a direction for the way to beach as there are many by-lanes around that area which all ultimately leads to the beach.

This area is mostly inhibited by fishermen as most of them are engaged in the fishing business and so these sight of drying fish outside their home os very common.

Like a sea wave

One of the life’s joy is to observe the sea waves on a quiet evening. It tells a lot about human nature, feelings and emotions. Isn’t it?


I like to think that we are lost since birth and what we call life, is actually the search that happens while we exist. Some get it some don’t. And whatever we are doing and the experiences that we go through, invariably leads to the discovery of lot of questions and their answers, many of which are existential. This life leads us from unknown to known.

I am lost and I am searching. Hoping to get there some day, sooner or later.

An evening on beach

The city of Mumbai has been blessed with some beautiful beaches which are unfortunately not maintained properly by the authorities. However one exception is the Gorai beach which is relatively clean, may be because its less frequented by the people. On one beautiful evening I got an opportunity to explore the beach with my camera. Here are some of the clicks. 

The Gang of Gorai | These are boys from gorai fishermen colony who plays cricket on gorai beach on sundays. They like to call themselves Super Warriors and has almost 16 member team with Shane Kenneth as their captain (boy in yellow T with bat).

The member of the super warrior. Batsman, witty, smart and talented.

Mumbai – Maximum City

A city like Bombay, like New York, that is a recent creation on the planet and does not have a substantial indigenous population, is full of restless people. Those who have come here have not been at ease somewhere else. And unlike others who may have been equally uncomfortable wherever they came from, these people got up and moved. As I have discovered, having once moved, it is difficult to stop moving. – Suketu Mehta
