Like every travel lover , i can’t sit in the home on holiday or the day i am free. I love to go out and roam free,click photos,capture memories,sit in silence to know myself.I had half day’s time,so i decided to go to Bandra,Mumbai.I had made my itenary after lot of reading and research for my half day trip which includes the following.
Chapel Road & Nagrana Lane
Castella de Aguada(Bandra Fort)
Mount Mary Church
Chapel road has its own beauty of street art. If you want to see artistic imagiation and creativity with message to the society and wall graffiti of famous your bolywood artists you must visit here.
Nagrana Lane is at walking distance from chappel road . This lane will continue with the legacy of the carter road with mesmerising wall art.
It was my plesure to visit Chapel’s Road and Nagrana Lane.It was like visiting artistics galary.
Castella de Aguada also called as Bandra Fort built by portuguse in 1640 , is an excellent spot for enjoy scenic beauty ,take pictures,enjoy cool evening breeze and watching beautiful sunset. It has witnessed the shooting of many hindi movies like Jaane Tu..Ya Jaane Na,Dil Chahta Hai,Buddha Mil Gaya and many more. Bandra fort also consists of a beautiful garden inside itself with a variety of flower and trees.You will also see this garden as lover’s point as couples sitting all around the garden.
Bandra Banstand is 1.2 Km long walkway long sea shore making it perfect place for spending a nice evening.You can sit hear peacefully on rock and enjoy the waves of Sea which will come with life and take all your pain while going back.You can have Chana Jor Garam and tea/coffee/bornvita from the local vendors while enjoying the cool breeze.This place is also perfect for enjoying the beautiful sunset sitting on the black rocks in the serenity of sea.On sitting on the rock and watching the sea ,I live the lines of Bhanu Didi from her book Gurudev On the plateau of the peak “I have always loved the sea.It reminds me of infinity ,endless vastness.Each wave,powerful ,is part of the ocean yet distinct from it.When it rises,it is aware of itself as a wave, and as it recedes,it merges back with the ocean.Such is our life too.“
Mount Mary Church
While entering the church it is very blissful to see Mount Mary with child jesus .People come here for grace of divine mother in their life, they pray for their troubles and problems of life and it is said that mother mary does not leave any one unattended.Praying here will give you hope,strength and grace in your life.
It is roman catholic church,stands on a hillock, about 80 metres above sea level overlooking the Arbian sea.
I love this place since for food lover’s it is paradise.Being a foodie i could not control myself tasting a variety of food here. Everyone can enjoy according to their taste either vegetrain or non vegetrain. whole road is filled with food joints on both the sides taking you to a heven of food.I have my first taste of mock meat (a type of vegetarian processed food, often containing a soy, gluten, and vegetables, shaped and coloured to resemble real meat.) here in GOOD eat a awesome pure vegetarian Outlet. You can have a nice vegetrain dishes with similar taste of butter chicken,mutton rolls and so on. I also tried Lassi Te Parrontthe,a place with all the menu on wall with a beutiful graphiti menu and taste is also mindblowing.You can have your’s according to your mood and hunger.But I must say everyone should visit this road and enjoy their mouth watering feast here,You will suerly love it.
If you want to find peace from all the situations personal,professional, emotional you will not get it from others.you need to speak to yourself , your own mind will give you answer.It will make you free from burden you are carrying inside. You are only healer of yourself.Every other thing can support you but you need to find the answer yourself. You are your own medicine and treatment between conflict between your heart and mind.
Just remember one thing , we don’t have control on everything but what we can be do is we can behave positively, do the right thing. We can do hard work,progressive work and positive work.If not completely at least try.It will not heal you completely but slowly slowly give courage and confidence of patience which will lead you towards positivity and happiness.
The term EOD is not word its a emotion, emotion to bind,hold,take care of each other. EOD means , End of day in which all the bachelor friend of you or friends that enjoy bachelor hood after marriage , will come at your place and you will have sessions together for colddrinks, beer ,whisky ,rum,vodka and cigarettes. This session is not session but therapy ,sometimes this session is required for finishing the pain ,anger , breakups , love , crushes or sometimes required so that everyone can speak all the heart out and be free from all the pain an emotions they are holding inside them.sometimes it is required for settling the things and required to dissolve the distance that has been developed among few of us because of work,expectation or trying same crush or loving same girl. It also happen for better cause sometimes when some loved ones of you returned from onsite with duty free bottle as a souvenir for you all or if we have to celebrate birthday but budget is less that we can’t celebrate king size but you can have it during EOD in which you can cook chicken with the help of few master chief within among your self and along with you can order 2 liters of best available drink in town,which will definitely make this celebration large and historical.If some one near and dear to your heart is leaving then also EOD is done as a tribute and farewell gift.In this EOD one thing i forgot to mention that if refrigerator is not working then one gem of us will bring whole large sheet of ice and we will apply our all mechanical engineering for breaking into pieces .so that ice cubes in proper manner should be available during the full tenure of EOD and everyone of us will enjoy there drink whatever it may whisky with ice or chilled beer with ice or coke with ice for non alcoholic in there best extreme form. In short i will narrate EOD to be the event which take all your pain and make yourself happy and satisfied not for long time but atleast the night of event. 🙂
