One of the daunting things about going to a new country must surely be leaving all your friends and family behind. You're a stranger in a strange land and you have to start from scratch, hoping that your work colleagues and the people you meet there will accept you, foibles and all. I was lucky with my first trip to India as the friends I made in Mumbai will definitely be friends for life ... and I wanted to introduce some of them to you. In ten days I head out there again, to meet up with old friends and to work with a brand new Star Team. I can't wait!... read more

I stayed in Bombay (The old name has its charm) for a period of 7 years and the pictures that i have put up here are some of the places that are a must see. A good way to explore Bombay is on foot and the buses. Commuting via public transport is one of the best ways to explore the culture and the life of people in Bombay. While you are in Bombay I recommend you must do the list of things mentioned below. This is give an idea of the real essence of what bombay is all about. 1) Colaba causeway - Most of the guide books have this spot listed so I wont talk much about it. 2) Dharavi - If you are bombay its a must you explore the slums.
