Mumbai has been described as the city of dreams, a melting pot of cultures, of real and reel, of large and small… a city of stark contrasts.

As it stretches out into the night, one cant’s stop but begin to love the thrill that is Mumbai!

So they hurriedly went away leaving a trail of their mobile phone’s lights and a shadow of their presence on the banks of the sea on the other side.
