Khan Abdul Ghafar Khan Road (Worli Sea Face)




Like all Indian cities, Mumbai is no place for pedestrians.

I have to disagree here. Most Indian cities are far more walkable than 98% of the US cities.

In the US, zoning laws ensure that distances between any residence and any shop are miles apart at the very least. 20 minutes by car (at high speeds) to get to the closest departmental store is considered "close".

For all its faults, one thing that works in India's favor is the ease of walking across to the local kirana store to buy a soap or a toothpaste instead of being forced to buy everything in bulk twice a month from walmart

I think the author wants to tell us that Mumbai is a fast paced city, so no place for pedestrians, only for marathon runners.

Nice photograph, the silhouette and the evening sky is just brilliant!

Thank you.
The footpaths in Indian cities are in a very bad condition and are fast disappearing because when roads are widened, they eat up the footpaths.
