Iftaar Musings

Mohammad Ali Road in Mumbai during the nights in the month of Ramzan.
Very familiar to the 'Peth's of Pune during the nights at Ganeshotsav time.
Thousands josting for space, temporary eateries doing great business, hundreds of street salespersons peddling their wares.
Traffic jams, crowds, an abundance of fluorescent tubelights.
Well-dressed girls out on the streets having a great time way past the normal "safe" hours.
A buoyant spirit of festivity in the air.
Yes, a lot like the 'Peth's of Pune during Ganeshotsav.
But with a LOT more meat.
