city lights

mumbai skyline by night by kunal bhatia

put this picture up as my desktop background, and on first look people ask me which city is this? guesses pan the world from singapore to new york. only on taking a closer look do people realise its mumbai.

the city's skyline can be as stunning as that of any metropolis. one just has to probably just dig around a bit more for spectacular sights. mumbai has its own unique character, its about time the powers that be stop harbouring shanghai dreams.
