@gonsalves_r You could travel by local trains. Ideally in the afternoons or late at night. If in Bandra, desserts at Eat Around the Corner.
@gonsalves_r Spend an evening at Cuff Parade/Marine drive. Eat vada pav or dabeli. Visit town(Colaba area). Parsi food at Ideal corner cafe.
@gonsalves_r Which area of the city will you be? Check out Comedy Store (Vagina Monologues was a hoot) or NCPA if something good is playing.
Back home after two weeks. And didn’t think I’d ever say this, but slightly missing Bombay. There’s something in that city…
Traffic message board on the western express highway, Bombay: “Beware drunken drive is on”… Huh?
@SudhanAtri Hello! Nope, still in Bombay. Back on Monday. I have been emailing my work to clients. Work should be put up sometime soon.
Bombay still doesn’t cease to amaze. Walking on its streets again.
Dadar just before peak hour, wow. Never seen so many people at a train station before. Wonder how it’s going to be on my return in the peak.

@munimkazia Is this the one at the end of Brigades? next to Kanti Sweets?
@pricelessjunk Haha! Was just looking up places there.
Looking for interesting dessert places in Bangalore. Any suggestions?
@souvikdg We’re ready for day break. It beats burning the midnight oil. @pandorazjukebox
Have fun on your excursion!
@souvikdg There’s one more here. Happened to just wake up and can’t seem to fall asleep. When they meant an early start, they meant early!

@sheriesm Woah! Winter’s back then?
If only it didn’t hang as soon as you clicked on something, the Canon DPP software is actually quite good. But what a pity. :’(

Also, what a picture from @keeperofthekeys!
@sheriesm Somesone’s getting alive here. Shocked.
@eclairsk3 Oh. But you’re sure seem to be having fun in the big city. :-)
Sure did. Had to sleep it out the entire next day.
Apparently the Chumbak services are faster than expected. Laptop sleeve has arrived! Thanks @Fine_Whining! Love it. :) http://t.co/1dvxpbiO
@keeperofthekeys Yup a midnight cake. :)
@WhispersChinese :-) Photo is still due I know…
@nimitnshah Thanks Nimit! :-)
@eclairsk3 Thanks Ashu! :) Coming down anytime soon?
@keeperofthekeys Thanks a lot Nidhi! =) My friends actually surprised me with a cake last night, had the remaining this morning. :)
@souvikdg We’ll give it to you this time, Delhi. But we trust you’ll will race ahead soon enough. @pricelessjunk @keeperofthekeys
@pricelessjunk Dry heat at that too! :(
@pricelessjunk Thanks Priya! I see we share the same birth date. ;P
@lokallobaat Thanks again Sumit!
@rakeshrach Thanks Rakesh! Add to it, the Sunday morning quiet and calm. Good start indeed. :)
@RohithNair Thanks Rohith! :-)
Birthday cake for breakfast. Not a bad start for the day. :)
Happy Birthday @miranjdesign! Your eventful year is almost a guiding light now. ;) miranj.in/blog/2012/one[+]
Nice change. http://t.co/0cWNa5oJ

@lokallobaat Which would be…?
@jaslinthomas What happened today?
@natashakini Hello! Candid Wedding photographer here. How can I be of assistance? :) Based in b’lore too.
Spicing things up. RT @WhispersChinese: Submission number 8 by @souvikdg thechinesewh…93703445/one[+] Woohoo!! #evil
Find of the day: Loving the outputs and easy photo processing by the @snapseed desktop version.
Also, the free iPhone app is a bonus find.

@nimitnshah It was nice. Just that it was in a half-open space ambience. Iterating, Asad Khan’s performance topped the event.
Such a nice touch to send a cc of your enquiry when made via the @miranjdesign website. Another reason to hire them for your next project.
@nimitnshah Yes, thanks to you and @rungta’s links.
And most of today has gone in shifting between songs of Roja, Bombay and Thiruda Thiruda. Also, two of those movies remain open. :S
So Classic Incantations was held at Palace grounds, not the most ideal setting. But the highlight of the night was Asad Khan on the sitar.
@mammothbrain A picnic + kite flying day out at a park.
So one free pass for tonights Classic Incantations remains. facebook.com…manyandindia[+] Anyone want it?
Today’s little joy comes from Apple Chancery and what it’s done to my work.
@nimitnshah In due time. :)
@souvikdg DoubleTake. This has probably been the best stitch I’ve managed so far. Thank you. :)

The Golden Dragon, a play currently running at Jagriti. Gripping, good story telling, and acted really well. If you’re in B’lore go for it!
@KalyanVarma More importantly why is one person’s offence made into a country’s objection?
@LakshmiAMenon Now, you’ve sold your soul to the Americans. Didn’t think you were a sports enthusiast, let alone American football. :P
@nimitnshah Hahaha! Déjavu indeed. Yes you had already replied twitter.com/…636622233600[+] :)
@souvikdg That so sounds like something @erm_wat would say. :P @lokallobaat
@jaslinthomas Finally someone’s participating on Twitter. :P
@nimitnshah you went for it yesterday? Seems like it would be great. Don’t think there are any tickets left though.

Hope to catch this movie as well. Loving the imagery.
@Fine_Whining Ok ok, Happy Birthday! :-) Go home now.
___ Birthday @Fine_Whining. While you age slower than most of us, you make up for it with your wisecracks. For all the smiles, a public hug.
The last time I was on the airport bus I realised how much I cared for my camera. rashmiswamy…./hello-world[+]
Now it’s my living.
After over an hours flight delay, goodbye vada pav city. It has been quite a treat.

@nimitnshah oh! I will be back in December. But you might not be around, will you?
@nimitnshah yes yes but yes. :( No, mehendi was on Saturday evening. Engagement was today. We still had a meeting due I know. :(
@nimitnshah Scary, but yes. Been an awesome 11 days here.
@RohithNair Yes. It’s still there… Towering tall over Mumbai’s skyline.
Who needs to go to Essel World, the amusement is right here on the streets. #bombay
Going easily 80-100kms an hour in an auto on the Western Express Highway. Only traffic is going to stop my heart racing.

@souvikdg You could choose not to use it. Though I meant if you want to explore a city without having to get lost, it’s a life saver.
Travel tip: Getting lost in a new city can be good, but having Google maps at hand is awesome.

@nimitnshah Don’t know. Maybe he was a South Indian too.
@shalynee Awesome. Freelancing as?
@Prakhya Haha! same to same. America America before that. :-) If they made more movies like that I’d have watched.
@Prakhya So true. The last, that too after so many years, had been Mungara male. Don’t even know who acts in the movies these days.
@shalynee oh nice! When’s the move?
@gonsalves_r Looks like you’re enjoying Bombay city as well. :) Such lovely Bangalore weather though.
Postcard from tonight: instagr.am/p/gCn8K/[+]
Massive thanks to @nimitnshah for the khao galli guide, along with how to cross streets, Bombay charity, acting and the midnight darshan. :)
@nimitnshah Haha! Shall keep them coming. Looks like this journey to Vikrant Circle will give me some more.
Who also incidentally was the first stranger who’s identified me as a South Indian. Yay! But also asked if I was from Madras. :S
Yesterday was a day to landmark: Got a free cab ride in Colaba by a nice cab driver. #travellingalone
Bombay travelogue note: LBS road, by SG Barve Marg, is the auto junkyard on display.
.@Fine_Whining’s living room is the best library I’ve been to.
@nimitnshah Went from Santacruz to Churchgate in the afternoon and back at 8. I couldn’t get off at the right stop cause of the mob. :/
@nimitnshah Totally! Loving the city. Which part do you stay in?
@nimitnshah We should probably meet up for some gujju food.

@nimitnshah Currently in Santacruz west. From Sunday might hop houses to Santacruz east and Matunga. Where are you put up?
@keeperofthekeys Cool! Look forward to it. :) thanks.
@nimitnshah I am, yes. :) Free from the 9th to 13th. Free to catch up sometime then?
Any Mumbaikers free to meet up next week?
Looking forward to wedding shoot no. 3 with @garethhoover.
Off to the airport. Missed this feeling of forgetting something. 11 days to soak in Mumbai and its smog.
@keeperofthekeys I like! I’m in. I’ll be away for 10 days, so could I join somewhere towards the middle or end of the chain? :-)
@keeperofthekeys Sounds interesting. I’m all ears. :)
@pricelessjunk Oh okay.
@pricelessjunk Where is this?
@oddysee Thanks! Had tried Lightroom before and hadn’t seen much of a difference. But LR does seem like the better option for what I need.
Anyone, what is the best application to view RAW files on a Mac?
(Aperture makes it look extra grainy.)
Masala dosa and filter kaapi has got to be the best way to start the day.
