Event blogging is what I explored while traveling to metro cities. It is one of the way to connect and meet new people while getting to know whats happening around the city. Sharing my experience about various events in Mumbai gave me few friends, good and bad experiences and above all, lots of fun knowing the city. Below are few of the events I covered during my 6 months stay in the city.

How much ever you like to holiday abroad or settle in foreign countries, staying in India has its own rewards.

Brewing good times!
Gone are the days when matches were said to be made in heaven. Times have changed and so have the rules of dating. The traditional courtship is now undermined and hook-ups have become casual.

The Ballard Estate Festival
Bombay Times once again brought life to the heritage district of South Mumbai with its signature weekend celebration Ballard Estate Festival on 26-27 November 2016.

It was a win-win situation as there was no entry fee except for the concert; for which the passes could be won by participating in various competitions at the festival.
