A leg to sleep on
On a busy street, in South Mumbai, life was happening. People were bustling about shopping and eating and being happy. The vendors were busy haggling over the prices of shoes and fruit and cheap trinkets. Colaba Causeway is a mangical place to be. And as you walk along the famed footpath sometimes you see things that cause you to stop and ponder.
Sleeping on a Jaipuri leg was this beggar. He slept there with not a care in the world, his prosthetic laughingly daring us to recognise the poingancy of it all. Its funny and its sad. Its clever yet mad. On that street of furious activity, he made you stop and ponder. A silent oasis in a beehive of activity. Thats Mumbai for you.
