Mumbai Sabeel Landscapes 


Sabeels or chabils are set up across Mumbai during Muharram. It is part of the free drinking water culture of Mumbai. Over the last few years, it had become an important thing for many children of Mumbai to set up their own sabeels or decorate the sabeels. Most are however made by adults. 


Here are a few examples. 










The Artist: Salman Sheikh 

You can always guess the sabeels that decorated by the kids. They will have tiny animal toys, fun elements and lights. The sabeels made by the adults are not as fun and have religious messages. The kids don't really care.
