sea food, mumbai style


the kolis are amongst the earliest inhabitants of mumbai. today, this fishing community is restricted to enclaves in gorai, versova, juhu, bandra, colaba etc. untreated sewage being let out into the sea, infrastructure projects that traverse the coasts and stiff competition from north indian vendors who provide home delivery of fish have all threatened the community's way of living.

as a part of the mumbai festival which takes place every january, a 'koli sea food festival' was held at versova and at colaba fishing villages. i had covered the versova festival for mumbai mirror online, and these women, dressed in all their finery were running one of the stalls. despite being vegetarian, the aromas & sights were tempting...

This is a very nicely captured shot & nice knowing about the festival also & the inhabitants behind it. I will try to see the festival in details...

As for your query regarding the Saltlake city Mall ie. City Centre has been very very well designed by Charles Correa & is drawing huge crowds everyday especially in the weekends, it is very difficult to keep foothold there. I will try to post few pics of it sometime later. Thanks:)
