  7. Super shot! It is my long standing dream to visit CST one day. Every time i come to Mumbai I end up going to other stations like Kurla or even the airport but never CST! Someday!

  8. Unromantic I know, but I somehow can imagine a lot of bureaucrats at work in the space behind those windows! ;D

  12. This structure standing there beautifully & strongly for ages witnessing the city and its changes makes me wonder what if it could talk and narrate its experiences and share anecdotes.
    Well, that was the effect of this pic on me. Brilliant click Deepak :)

  13. That dome or cupola does look mysterious! Perhaps some day you could sneak up there and take some photos to show us what goes on behind closed windows?

  17. Sir, there is no time when it is open? I mean in western countries, some sights are open for public for some duration.

    Beautiful shot :)
