Walkeshwar – A quiet retreat in the heart of Mumbai.  This is an attractive spot for spending a quiet evening watching ducks and people go about their business.  There are many temples in this area, including one of Lord Shiva and Balaji (Venkateshwara), among others.

This ancient freshwater tank is right next to the salt-water Arabian sea.  According to legend, Lord Rama tired from searching for his wife, Sita, who was kidnapped by Ravana, asked his brother, Lakshmana, to fetch him some water.  Lakshamana then shot an arrow at this very spot and water rushed to the ground, thus forming baanganga.

Serengeti Migration – A Daily Phenomenon?

Who says one needs to go to Africa to see the Serengeti migration?  Every city has its very own migration that occurs twice daily.  In the morning I’m a witness to, and indeed a part of, the thousands of people who spill out from the train and subway stations and rush to their offices in one of the tall office buildings.  Herds of people make their way to their offices in the morning and then back to the train and subway stations in the evening – it’s like the Circular Migration of the Serengeti that we see on the Discovery Channel.
