The Mithi River is a river on Salsette Island, the island of the city of Mumbai, India. It is a confluence of tail-water discharges of the Powai and Vihar lakes.

Purple rumped sunbird

A purple rumped sunbird visited me yesterday,

The purple-rumped sunbird is a sunbird endemic to the Indian Subcontinent. Like other sunbirds, they are small in size, feeding mainly on nectar but sometimes take insects, particularly when feeding young. They can hover for short durations but usually perch to suck nectar from flowers. Wikipedia

Corn moon


 The Corn moon in Bandra east.

 The full moon of September was known as the Corn Moon and the Barley Moon by some   Native American cultures because it arrives at harvest time for those essential crops. ... It   often also is known as the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon closest to the autumnal   equinox.

Clouds

Jittery clouds in a blue sky,

For more Skywatch pictures from around the world please click here

I know you said
That you don't like it complicated
That we should try keep it simple
But love is never ever simple
No
Someday
You're gonna see the things that I see
You're gonna want air that I breathe
You're gonna wish you never left me
Here we go again
Another go round for all of my friends
Another non stop will it ever end
Here we go again
Another go round for all of my friends
Another non stop will it ever end
If we're never coming back down
Yeah we're looking down on the clouds
I know you said
That you don't like it complicated
That you are tired of all the changes
But love is always always changing
Woah
Someday
You're gonna see the things that I see
You're gonna want the air that I breathe
You're gonna wish you never left me
Here we go again
Another go round

Autorickshaws are back


 Most of the autorickshaws drivers are from other states and they had gone to their respective homes when lockdown was announced as they could not afford to live in the city without plying their autorickshaws. But now with the easing of the lockdown they have started returning to plying their taxis. A relief to the citizens and of course a means of living to the drivers. Signs of normalcy gradually appearing.

[Verse 1]
Walk along the river, sweet lullaby
They just keep on flowin', they don't worry 'bout where it's goin', no, no

[Verse 2]
Don't fly, mister blue bird, I'm just walkin' down the road
Early morning sunshine, tell me all I need to know, oh

[Chorus]
You're my blue sky, you're my sunny day
Lord, you know it makes me high
When you turn your love my way
Turn your love my way, yeah

[Guitar Solos: Duane Allman & Dickey Betts]

[Verse 3]
Good old Sunday mornin', bells are ringin' everywhere
Goin' to Carolina, it won't be long and I'll be there

[Chorus]
You're my blue sky, you're my sunny day
Lord, you know it makes me high
When you turn your love my way
Turn your love my way, yeah, yeah
