An Equal Music...

And into that Gate they shall enter, And in that House they shall Dwell, Where there shall be no Cloud nor Sun, No Noise nor Silence, but one Equal Music,
No Fears nor Hopes, but one Equal Possession,
No Foes nor Friends, but one Equal Communion and Identity, No Ends nor Beginning, but one Equal Eternity... -- From the book 'An Equal Music' by Vikram Seth The poem is written by John Donne

I Do Not Know How the Old Parsi Land Lady of Marine Lines, Ms Emy Mistry is doing these days... Or Whether She is at all alive... I lost touch with her... the above poem I found in the closet of the room where I was stuffed in as a Paying Guest for a little over  a month's troubled stay in Bombay in 2011 where I had gone for a job with IRCTC which didn't last long. The Poem was inspiring so I kept it without asking anyone. Because it was lying there unattended and I was sure it would have gone down the drains in some time...


My Wandering Days - A Saturday Visit to The Elephanta Island

My Lonely Days in the city of Mumbai is taking me to places of interest that has potentials of refreshing my mind and soul which i am in some serious need of...


Tough days since i landed here... struggling to meet my expenses in this expensive city and also a feeling of being exiled far away from my home and loved ones which i never wanted to, have had some depressing effects on my mind and body...

Nevertheless... My Passion for Travelling places drove me to visit the Gharapuri Island, 11 kms into the Arabian Sea yesterday...

This part of the world has been experiencing heavy torrential rains for the last couple of days and hence i was quite skeptical whether the ferries which are actually very ordinary motor boats operating from the Apollo Bunder next to the Gateway of India to the Elephanta Island, would be available since the wild sea often creates risks of fatal accidents thus suspending trips to Elephanta in the monsoons here in Bombay...

Since i had to find some activity to spend …

Life in a Metro...

God has been very Kind to me.... I am Happy with the experiences i have faced in my Life so far... Good or Bad... Am in Bombay presently...
The Other day i had the opportunity to visit the Gateway of India across the Taj Mahal Hotel, Stood there for a while and wondered the ill fated date in November 2008 when a terrible Terrorist attack shook the hotel along with the entire nation... Memories of those smoke emissions from the Towers... did bring a cold shudder to me...
I am passing a Lonely Phase Here... Last Sunday was Rath yatra... Had my bath early and left for the ISCON Temple in Juhu, Mumbai... Very Nice Devotional Arati of the Lord Shri Krishna with chantings of Hare Krishna from Devotees... Felt Happy and at peace...
Next wandering destination was RKM Khar... and also the Marine Drive...
