I particularly like the photo of the horses rendered aglow by frontlighting.

Is it true that the skies are now perpetually grey in Mumbai? Of course, Delhi is worse and close on the heels of Shanghai with the sun rendered an insubstantial pale red orb floating amidst a soup of smog.

And what of the traffic--that nightmarish mainstay of the dystopian metropolis that has all but engulfed the populace in a smothering cocoon of cacophony so much so that to survive entails growing an inch thick callous that inescapably fosters a growing sense of apathy and malcontent. Is this the "India Poised" to which Indians have aspired or is Amitabh Bachchan merely dreaming a dream of delusions of grandeur?

Mumbai has many things going for it, but the spent condoms and broken needles on Juhu beach are not one of them. If the corruption and bureaucracy don't kill you today, the cancer will do that tomorrow. All's well that end's well in the denoument to this play.

I suppose just about any other place would be heaven by comparison, the land of fire and ice or otherwise. Might it be said of this travelogue that it is "A Chronicle on Escapism?"
