One of the things I love about Mumbai is its unique skyline. The palm trees and the sunshine combine with the Gothic architecture to give the Oval Maidan a sort of exotic holiday feel.

These buildings have been part of my childhood, and I feel a sense of belonging when I look at them.

Looking at the University clock tower, I feel its grandeur and poise almost immediately. There is a sense of deep calm, that transports me instantly to an older era.

I am reminded of my grandfather and his black-and-white photo collection.

I crossed the maidan every day at around 8.30 am for 2 years. It was serene, a sense of quiteness than instills oneself to think during the walk, buzy but not noisy... oh boy ! this is pure nostalgia.
