Photographer's Note

This frame I dedicate to beautiful poem on Mumbai by Leena Elizabeth...

With myriad, multi hued faces
Mumbai.
City of a thousand epithets,
City of dreams
City that never sleeps……
City of contrasts
Glittering, glitzy, glamorous
Slum infested, sweltering, sordid
Large hearted, balmy, gregarious
A tumultuous city…
Slithering snakelike along
the Arabian Sea.
Her spirit shining
Like the light of a million stars

Where naked, grubby children
with leaky noses,
play in the filth and gravel,
at the side of traffic signals,
as mothers rock their babies in
plastic cradles, on pavements.
Across
Their glowing, pampered kindred
look out from swank cars,
playing with their Nintendos.
Dressed in branded clothes,
which dad bought in yesterday,
From his business trip to Europe

Like a temptress of many moods
At day she is an angel, free and light.
She lets you be…. She lets you live…
