Afternoon at Juhu Beach: Soaking up India

Sunday afternoon, Mumbai. The sky is grey and the first monsoon rains are falling. I head to the beach, doing the same as a lot local Mumbaians… There’s a wave of satisfaction in the air, people are enjoying the beach, the rains and the good breeze from it. Eating together, praying and singing together, playing cricket and just enjoying the day and the the open space that the beach offers… Children are especially happy, playing around in the water… Walking around Mumbai you realize that they mustn’t have much open space like this to play.. It’s one of those rare moments they can do that… In sum, a fantastic Indian experience, where for the first time in my life I looked at rain as a blessing… Namaste!
