Marine Lines is a huge curve ending on Nariman Point. Here people are seen walking, talking and cosing around. You ought to get a chance to eat the raw mango and meet many acquaintances just having the time by themselves being in the crowd of the city yet away from it. This is the only good thing which Delhi lacks as a city - A place providing solace to everyone who passes through it.
