That's my world

This is Khar subway. It runs underneath a railway bridge to connect Khar East to Khar West. Khar is a tiny suburb sandwiched between tow larger suburbs of Bandra and Santacruz.

  2. Good eye. Are those vans, or taxis of some sort?

  3. The black and yellow vehicles you see are 3wheeler taxis called autorickshaws or popularly called 'autos' or 'ricks'. They ply only in the suburbs and are a very popular mode of transport.

  6. Interesting to learn there is a Santacruz town in India. I wonder if the Spanish got to India during the old times.

  13. I love the autorikshaws... Mumbai autorickshw walas are really nice as they do not overcharge or dupe anyone... unlike the Delhi autowalas.

  16. I am so lucky, we rarely get traffic jams. I tooo was wondering what the transport was as they look like taxis.

  20. Now, let me see, where was I? (I was mid-sentence leaving you a comment last night when the power went out, and it was late so I gave up and went to bed!) Oh yes, I was saying that I'd finally got to see Slumdog Millionaire (loved it!) and in all the city shots was thinking of your blog and trying to see if I recognized anything from your pictures. But it all went by so fast...

  21. great shot...would not deal well with all that traffic.
    nice post

  22. I thought those were autos on the right, but I really couldn't tell for sure. I love the light/shadow play here. It's an ordinary setting, but an extraordinary scene.

  23. Great post!
    Very busy indeed , I didn't know about "autorickshaws".This kind of "taxis" are so big and that windows so small!

    By the way...The driver use to be on the left side inside the car?

  31. I love seeing the line of rickshaws under the subway - great eye!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I never would have guessed this is Mumbai - so urban and busy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. The tunnel seems very low, maybe it is just for small vehicles like the ricks.
