Here are some pictures from my day.

I was standing at Bandra Station waiting for my train and the sky blue window on the opposite platform caught my eye and not to mention the man siting on his honches waiting. So out comes my camera and click. Notice the tiranga* pinned to this shirt - very patriotic. There also allot of moss growing probably due all the rain bombay got this past month.

Goods Traveller
I got into the luggage compartment for some reason. Luggage compartments on any working brimming with activity from Bombay's famous dabbawallahs to vegetable ladies, fish mongers and flourist transporting their goods. Anyways, somebody offerred me a seat, looking at my camera and thinking me a tourist.

Copious Amounts of Chai
Chai (Hindi: चाय [cay]) or Masala Chai is a term for spiced tea from India. Chai is actually a generic word for tea in many South Asian countries, and also in Swahili, an Eastern African language, where it was brought by Indian merchants.

Here a picture I took of the ever smiling chaiwallah outside Bombay Unversity.

Love the pictures on your blog! The one at Bandra station is really cool. Which camera do you have?
I am a hardcore Bombayite and am feeling major nostalgia after seeing all the B'bay pics.

Even other languages use the word similar to 'chai' for tea. In Russian and Romenian its exactly pronounced as in Hindi "chai" where as in Japanese its "cha".
