Anarkali


One of the oldest murals in Bandra, painted by Ranjit Dahiya the pioneer of Hindi film murals in Mumbai. This is titled Anarkali after a film of the same name that was released in 1953 based on the legend of the Mughal emperor Jehangir, who revolted against his father Akbar, over his love for a commoner named Anarkali.

Super Flower Moon


The Super Flower Moon this morning at 6 am.

The full moon in May was named the "Flower Moon" by several Native American tribes because of the large number of flowers that bloom this month, according to The Old Farmer's Almanac. It is also sometimes referred to as the Mother's Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon, references to a time of increased fertility.
