Mumbai Harbour


Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife

I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life

Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home
The bees are buzzin' in the tree
To make some honey just for me

When you look under the rocks and plants
And take a glance at the fancy ants
Then maybe try a few

The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife

I mean the bare necessities
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life

Now when you pick a pawpaw
Or a prickly pear
And you prick a raw paw
Next time beware
Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw
When you pick a pear
Try to use the claw
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw
Have I given you a clue ?

The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

So just try and relax, yeah cool it
Fall apart in my backyard
'Cause let me tell you something little britches
If you act like that bee acts, uh uh
You're working too hard

And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true

The bare necessities of life will come to you


I love this song from Jungle Book sung by Bhaloo the bear I sing it when I'm a little low (this flu) and think about Mumbai my home.

Gateway of India

Did you know that a part of the mountain fell in the sea when Hanuman was carrying it to Sri Lanka for Laxman to treat him with the Sanjeevani buti. This is that hill called Dronagiri now known as Uran.

Cranes busy loading and unloading

Ferries to Elephanta Island


The old lady is undergoing botox treatment. The Taj Mahal Hotel.

No Regatta today just lazing.

It could be a Tata, Birla, Mallya, you name it celebrity in there.

All go across the harbor to their superlative homes in Alibag for the weekend.

Taken from the Catamaran while returning from my trip to Thal.


It was one jumpy 45 mins ride.

  2. Anjali, you captured my favorite part of Bombay! The sea looks choppy! I would have been quite sick from anxiety and the motion by the end of the ride. How do you do it?! Don't answer tat. I know! You are the daughter of the sea!

  3. Manisha you must take Medha on the ride though. Does she like the sea and boat rides? My nephews and nieces all are thriller seeker nothing scares them. There are all under eight years. They just laugh non stop as if tickled after an adventure ride of any kind.

    I liked the "daughter of the sea" title. A daughter who never learnt to swim not even in the swimming pool at CCI. LOL
