I reached Mumbai on the morning of the concert and had my return flight the next evening at 4. I wanted to spend some more time in the megacity, whose stories had always charmed me. After reaching my pre-booked guesthouse, I got some much- needed sleep and headed for the concert in the afternoon.
MMRDA ground is a sprawling venue, enough to accommodate the expected crowd of over 1 lakh. The concert started with speeches from various ministers and other personalities, and moved on to performance by Bollywood artists. The only notable performabce I found was of A>R Rahman who enthralled the ground with his tunes of Dil Se, Vande Mataram among others.
