“Chai Chai Chai” in Mumbai
Just after a train whistle blows on a mid summer morning, a voice from the station platform is heard over the crowd, “Chai Chai Chai”. The voice of a middle aged Chai Walla pours up a cup of delicious scented chai tea from a steel kettle as the midday Train pulls into Mumbai central.
This city beats to its own drum, a rhythm unlike any other city on earth. Bombay/Mumbai is alive and uncanny. The bustling city of old and new boasts endless horizons of worn down buildings and new steel skyscrapers, grand bazaars, and pushcarts accompanied by women in decadent and colorful saris as they sell the morning’s fresh picked fruits and merchandise.
Taxis and bicycle rickshaws weave the long stretch of ocean on Marine Drive—the road that separates the Mumbai skyline and the slender beach front known as Chowpatty. Head over to the Gateway to India, a monument built during the British Raj in Mumbai. The monument is a good starting point for all your adventures. Highly recommended is a boat to the Unesco World heritage Elephanta Caves Island for breathtaking artifacts and sights. Back on the mainland the occasional western backpacker can be seen negotiating a fair price for hostels and ‘Tuk-Tuks’ (taxis). Tourists come and go snapping photos like it is A Whole New World. The city buzzes and twirls.

Seeing is Believing If you don’t believe in Global Warming then Believe in Global Trashing. I’m tired of people saying “I’m just one person what can I do I’ve heard it countless times…” You can do a great deal. “By the people for the people, power of the people”
These waters were hear before us and will be here after us for the next generations…Or will they? It is only getting worse… If you are thinking well that is on the other side of the world/ or It’s their ocean… etc. You are a fool. It is OUR Earth. We all make a difference. Please think about your options… See this and Believe it. Feel free to share this photo/reminder of our present day harsh reality.
Who is to blame? Governments, the people? We all take the blame for the increased demand for plastics around the world, I do believe that it is educational to teach about recycling and waste management though.
