Last Super Moon of 2020
On May 7, the full moon was dramatic as the clouds aided this entire play up in the skies.
The story of full moon nights is, when trying to take pics of the moon, since last many years, I have noted, the night prior and after the full moon is usually pleasing to eyes.
You get the most beautiful views and if there are Clouds, then there is drama in the skies
Indian name boards and hoardings:
Firstly, do NOT judge. Be it English, Hindi, Marathi or any language, grammar is thrown out!
The names are side tickling and punctuations are hilarious, giving different connotations.
The Saifee Buhrani Redevelopment project is on and all those shops which once existed have been shifted yo another location. As s result, these people have put up the boards advertising their shops or wares. And they are funny.
Talkies of our times…or single screen cinema theatres. On VP Road, The famous Alankar, which is shown in most Hindi films and a little ahead, Moti Mahal.
They finally began showing B, C grade films.
Walking on desolate streets
Barren Queen’s Necklace: Dreamers are missed
I go out once in few days to assess the situation on the ground. Which roads are.ooen, how strictly is the lockdown and curfew being enforced.
Walked to Walkeshwar and one can see couples sitting under the trees, people walking up and down the main road of Malabar Hill. As long as one is within their area, as police barricades are at every major junction and police ask for papers once it is dark.
By which time, one tends to forget all worries, as the lights begin to shimmer along the splendid Queen’s Necklace. I miss the crowded horizon of people who look to the horizon far into the sea, holding onto their dreams tightly….her neck is barren, almost naked!
One of those times I could catch the Sunrise, only to.see three workers walk towards JJ flyover. Could be CST, Masjid Bunder, as they asked for directions. Not the best times in our country.
The blazing sun just conveys my emotions.
Blue Skies and blue water, Mumbai has never seen such a sight!
“Blue skies, smilin’ at me, Nothin’ but blues skies do I see…Never saw the sun shinin’ so bright…” Frank Sinatra, Blue skies
Beautiful views of before and after: The Copper Pod trees that had only buds and later the yellow flowers shone, giving an irresistible lustre.
Second is the sunset and the colours after the sunset, more like a beautiful stale light
Charni road to Bombay hospital
A road filled lined by beautiful Copper Pod flower trees and many other variety of trees.
We pass Our Lady of Dolours Church and the Gol Masjid near Metro theater
Girgaon: People in Girgaon usually burst out from every gully, corner of this neighborhood. To see few or no people, that too keeping 6 ft distance and eerie silence, was a first for us. Scary for some, shocking for many, now the Girgaonkars want the lockdown to get over.
Most places as you can guage from the layout, are cheek by jowl. Many living in cramped rooms, staying put 24×7, can give rise to new frictions and dynamics within the families and for society as a whole.
