Sea-side view

Marve beach , Mumbai . A place that evokes many wonderful , childhood memories of holidays and extended week ends . A serene , clean beach that was in effect a second home . My cousins and me pretty much retreated to the cottage only by late evening.

A few weeks ago went there on an impulse.

This isn't a new species of trees . It's trees assaulted by plastic bags callously thrown on the beach.

30 feet across the road from this picturesque view are expensive houses possibly purchased and built at a premium for the view . One that the residents don't seem to care about any more. Maybe there's money to be made in selling land / expensive villas near land fills.
