  1. I'm glad to see those "modern conveniences." I think it would be quite unhappy to live in Mumbai without air conditioning ... although I'm sure many folks do just that!

    Great b&w!

  8. south mumbai looks so much more outwardly in Black and white ... the architecture throughout the city reflects the multiple identities of Mumbai... from Virar to Worli to Fort the architecture so distinctly different

  15. I guess air-condition is a nice thing to have, even to they are as beautiful as satellite dishes.

  16. Do the lights dim when they are all running?

  17. You get things like that a lot in Israel too. They're eyesores, but I'm sure they make the buildings a lot more liveable.

  20. Seems like it might have been easier to put in a large central unit.

  21. That's a beautiful old building. I guess it was hard to modernize it without seeing the units.
