We then had an introduction session by the sea so that we could know our fellow riders a little better. Then we proceeded and our second stop was at the Asiatic Society of Mumbai's library. It is a library with treasures of books, periodicals, ancient manuscripts, painted folios, coins, artifacts, maps & prints. It was founded by Sir James Mackintosh - a lawyer, jurist and public figure in England who was also the Recorder for the King's Judge for Bombay. The library was formed with the intention of promoting useful knowledge. Opposite of the library was the Horniman circle park. It was named after British Journalist Benjamin Horniman who supported the Indian freedom struggle. The area is an art and culture hub of Mumbai city.
