Marine Drive is an eight-lane highway, shaped as an arc, with a wide wall snaking along its side. It was built in the 1920s on reclaimed land. It stretches from Nariman Point-the concrete jungle of Mumbai, in the north, to the picturesque Malabar Hills- home to many of our Bollywood stars, in the south.

Marine Drive is an ideal people-watching place at all times of the day. Early in the morning, it throngs with fitness freaks taking their morning walks or jogs and enjoying the view of the sea. There are others who come to walk their Poodles or Pekinese. It is also a time when beggars begin their day, lining up in the hope of that kind-hearted sardarji who always spares a penny. Grandpas form a circle and laugh out loud as part of their laughter club exercise. It never fails to bring a smile on to the face of the passer-by. Soon I find them all rushing back to their homes to begin a new day, all afresh (except for the beggars of course who are already at work!).
