Chedha Nagar

Mumba Devi and Associates: Urban Worship in Mumbai.

Saw a man worshiping a tree on my way to work today. It's a vacant plot and could be owned by the temple trust, if not will there be a temple there in a few days time?

Let's wait and see.

The Mariamman Temple opposite the plot. (Mari is the dravidian small pox goddess like local Sitala Devi, I think)

And yes, there are places that are as green as this in Mumbai. Until the politicians and their benaami construction companies find a way to muscle their way in.
