one of the most buzzing spots of nightlife, bandra is also a story tellers hub! wait till you meet someoneđź’ś

mumbai is blessed with a coastline which is home to mumbai's koli tribe and many more.. with a beautiful coastline, there are loads of beaches and places which connects to ocean.
mumbai itself is composition of 7 islands, which is delicately woven with love and care of mumbaikars.. we have chowpatty, akse beach, juhu beach ( a huge stretch),versova, madh islands and many more which connects to shimmering waves.. reason climate is always hot and humid and very very dripping in monsoons xd ~lyndssey

usually i don't post pictures of restaurants but had to post this.

came here for a semi-formal lunch (no scratch that) i never knew this place existed behind a cutlery shop!
most amazing thing about this fancy restaurant is they have 300 types of green teas known. owner of tdt jiten seth had travelled all way to different countries like france, china and africa where green tea is prepared in various flavours, studied their process and blended various indian elements keeping it's scientific properties intact!
he's specialized in green tea now and idea behind this whole place is how people can take break and relax themselves.. we had peach tea and let me tell you, it was bliss. the warmth of the tea was so soothing, my brain relaxed for time-being (which happens rarely)
restaurants like these are hidden in corners, away from our reach. we need to explore more to find such good places time by time! (p.s try sakura tea once in life!) ~lyndssey

Great place for walking- i always cherish the memories of walking through marine drive in a breath of fresh air and view of setting sun. #marinelife #peace #merimumbaidiaries #sachinkolarps @itz_mumbai

probably hottest destination in monsoon.
i'd pay each and every penny i have to be here during monsoon.
with every patter of the furious droplets, the waves rise highers creating a mystical rythm which is sweetest melody to my ears.
we read newspaper to specially plot the days of high-tide, just to go there and see the mystical waves!

rant.

from blur city lights to heavy monsoons we mumbaikars are targets of adaption in any season possible.

economy maybe flowing in and out in billions, but there lies poverty and hidden grievances which are never solved.

everyone wants to migrate in the hustle-bustle city, but what about the existing people who are never heard?

our day starts from morning 5 am, no local trains are empty but most buzzing gossips spill by, till midnight 2 am where you'd see people beginning to prepare for the next day itself.

restless and sleepless are people. pain and sweat is what we shed, love and kindness we share.

we are mumbaikars.
we don't explain.
we just do it. ~lyndssey

rant.

ever since i migrated, i felt like being from mumbai is like you're ultimately stepping out from lost city of atlantis.. people expect, people crave, people beg.

but i want to ask all mumbaikars out there, how many filmstars have you seen in real life?
or how many clubs you've really visited forshadowing night out at friends place?
sometimes people expect too much. they forgot we are normal people are them.

yes it may be 'happening' city.
and yes our brain probably is restless every second as it passes by.

but it's not all glamour and fun.
it's competition , adaption and survival. things don't happen magically, you've to work every second of it to make it happen! ~lyndssey

a striking contrast to luxurious skyscrapers and small slum cottages in south mumbai.

no these people are not poverty driven, but they are well educated people!
but due to landmass and space crisis, they can't help but stay like bandra slums in very posh area of napeansea road.

this whole area is known as simla house or simla nagar famous for colourful roofs and broad amount of graffiti as you travel inside.

majority population is konkani marathi; their day starts at morning 5 am itself!

such contrasts are not new in mumbai, while someone is sleeping for 6 hours, someone might not sleep at all for 6 days :-; life! ~lyndssey

one of the favourite billion dollar house of india's richest business tycoon mr mukesh ambani named "antilia" gives life to already shining altamount road.

let's forget about number of staffs and riches embedded inside the home of gujarati tycoon, but adore the style of modern architectural and challenging building structure.

a lot of criticism and controversy for antilia rose when the previous owner stated this land was by order for the orphanage and costing was not up to the mark.

many other business tycoons got golden opportunity to criticize but now once it's constructed it's done! there's no going back.
it's now your perspective how you view it! ~lyndssey

a quick escape to sketchy skyscrapers and luxurious apartments of rich tycoons of south mumbai.

soon a coastal road is bound be constructed here, giving the california vibes to our little populous paradise x.x

when i went home this summer, all i could see was underground metro construction and heavy traffic drowning the crowded streets.

for a minute i had to step back and glance if i'm walking in correct directions.

i wonder what my city will be after few glorious years, but surely i'll always carry memories of this city without urban decorations :) ~lyndssey

it is believed to be a place of samadhi shrine for great indian saints in malabar hill, but i'm quite not sure the exact location is.

these are some restricted areas in south mumbai and the lush green patch is the only reminder of oldest malabar hill when it wasn't reconstructed to form housing to richest tycoons of india.

from up here in morning, many times i've heard peacock's voices and let me tell you finding a peacock in mumbai is really rare.

walkeshwar jain temple and the greenery around here along with banganga tank lure some natural diversity here! ~lyndssey

i came here with my friend for her photoshoot. more over i saw this place from taxi and just jumped that we should try this place.

it was perfect since the lush greenery and smell of monsoon was keep me alive. (i love monsoon as equal as chai)
but suddenly i was hit with dark emotions. i lost lot of people last year ever since i migrated for my degree. and suddenly i wanted to forget everything. best way of distraction was photography and spinning words.
i don't want to be affected by their absence. people are temporary, i learned that quite early. memories are permanent, they'll always be attached like unwanted stain in your white shoes.
so best thing about that is just embrace it and let go.. quicker you let go, easily you'll stop feeling guilty or empty.
my words may sound weird but they come from experience. i just drowned myself in works and distractions of new projects now nothing affects me at all... life will throw adventures, but are you ready to accept them? ~lyndssey

picture yourself at this place with your loved one or your soul itself and close your eyes.
take a deep breath and feel the serenity that nature tickles you with.

open your eyes and forget about your life for a second.
capture the moment.

as a teenager, i knew this place flourished for couples and hotspot for proposing girls along with watching beautiful sunsets and spending quality of time.

somewhere people forgot before love zone, this place is for people who love to jog in mornings and do yoga in green patches of hangings gardens.
since time we see different crowd at different time. a garden in mumbai, that too this huge is like miracle of drop in this black and white urban jungle.
if you look around you'll find hardly any gardens around whole city offering state of calm along with green lush.
this is still my favorite spot for watching morning views from top! ~lyndssey

continuation to my last post. so one fine morning i strolled out in heaviest rainfalls of the time in morning, but it was day of adventure as i found out another secret trail which leads of hanging gardens.. built in 1881, this park is built on top of malabar hill which provides breathtaking view of one zone of south mumbai.

you can see entire stretch of nariman point, arabian sea and various adjoining parts. sunsets are breathtaking, but something i realized this park has been renovated over and over again.

as a child i used to visit this place, because one thing i knew i wanted to go to that giant shoe over there and call my mother (sort of hide and seek) if she can distinguish me from other kids.
various rides, various view points, eagerness what lie beneath that steps made my childhood beautiful. ~lyndssey
