India’s second largest city, Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is home to a few hundred captivating contrasts and creeds. Mumbai is bursting with frenetic bazaars, shaded avenues thronged by commuters and roads brimming with traffic. The dynamic Maharashtrian metropolis is also a powerhouse of India’s business and trade sectors. But regardless, Bombay’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai city are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture. Watching the sunset with a plate of vada pav at Marine Drive and experiencing the vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi at Juhu Beach are few of the best things to do in Mumbai. One must also travel to Mumbai city to be dazzled by the country’s biggest, and most prolific film and media industry, wherein if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a Bollywood star or two.
The Toofan dropped us at this very small town called Shirwal. We decided to quickly check out the place before heading on. It was just 10 o clock and the roads were already empty and people retired to their homes. Just a couple of restaurants were open and our growling stomachs were more than happy to see them . We had a sumptuous dinner at the supposedly “best restaurant in town “ and the food bill shocked us ! It was just a 160 rupees for a deliciously generous quantity enough for the two big guys. We thanked the owner and asked for directions towards Mahabaleshwar.
