fisher women selling fish
' Do You want to buy my fish or not.........'
Its not a threat nor is it a request......, but its a statement hurled at you by a busy fisher woman of Mumbai in a distinct and definite authoritative tone if one tries to bargain too hard with her.The fisher women handle the selling of the fresh catch from the seas every morning .Typically, the fisher men go for fishing in the high seas and the job of selling the fish is left to the fisher women who go about their job like a true professional.She can be ruthless and requesting,friendly and aloof,calm and agressive all at the same time but one thing is for sure; she does manage to sell all the fish by the end of the day.

Open air Eateries on Mohammed Ali road
Minara Masjid on Mohammed Ali Road is the heart of Ramzaan festivities in Mumbai.
Days of fasting are punctuated with nights of feasting as families gather at the eateries on the open arterial streets
around the Masjid savouring mouth watering delicacies.

view of Crawford market against the backdrop of the Mumbai Harbour
With the talks of the redevelopment of CRAWFORD MARKET (now christened Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Market) Mumbai is set to lose a part of its heritage. Some may feel an exagerration but to me this can be compared to the destruction of the Buddha Sculptures at Bamiyan in Afganistan by the Taliban, though the means and motives are different the results are the same: the loss of heritage.
