"MUMBAI A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE" Mumbai by coconutwireless

Sightseeing with VT member Aadil Desai was very special. Here my husband Frank and Aadil humor me and pose for a "kodak moment" in front of the very famous monument, "Gateway of India"


After many months of e-mailing back and forth, we finally get to meet. This photo was taken at the International Airport, which accounts for the strange lighting.
Mahalo Aadil for all of your Kukua (help) and the Aloha Spirit that you gave us while visiting your beautiful city.
We hope to return again someday in the near future.


I went to Mumbai primarily to visit Ramesh S. Balsekar. I first learned of Ramesh and his teachings thorough my friends Kate & Steve. After several years of reading his books and teachings, I had the desire to visit this Spiritual Teacher and attend one of his satsangs.
Mumbai was indeed a very personal experience for me.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Near the sea which helps the air quality
  • Cons:Slums, traffic, honking horns
  • In a nutshell:Mumbai is indeed a city of many contrasts .
