sitting on the road divider in churchgate mumbai
what do we do when we've got to wait for someone? we sit right on the divider ofcourse!

after 4 years of being in krvia, we have the confidence to seat ourselves on any seat-able surface. this includes foot paths, bus roofs, chajjas (concrete weather shades over windows) and now road dividers

This is what I love about Mumbai... we can do anything any where.

Jeet looks a little shy. Heh! Heh!

@ web-oj: ya, well.... i was half-expecting a passer-by to yell at us; but as long as you don't interfere in someone else's business, no one will bother about what you do... and, i'll tell jeet so..

Mr. Bhatia,

I am an art professor in the States, coming to Mumbai for a couple months this week, and studying political graphics. I am especially interested in the hand-painted variety. Anything from announcements of "Great India" on the backs of lorries to Political party proclamations on walls, to graffitti/protest.

I wonder if you might be able to help me? Perhaps you know where some good subjects are located. Perhaps you have already photographed some. This is a non-profit enterprise but there is some budget to pay for services. You can contact me through my website aaronfineart.com and you can learn about me there or at art.truman.edu/faculty.asp

thanks for your blog!
