It’s been over a year since we last mentioned my walk through Mumbai and though I have since visited quite a few places, I still regard the people of Mumbai as some of the most warm and welcoming city dwellers in the world.
It didn’t matter that we spoke different languages, this young lad came and grabbed my hand to lead me to who I guess are his relatives. They all wanted their photos taken and they seemed happy when I showed them the images on my camera.
Then, having seen me with his neighbours, another fellow popped up and welcomed me into his workshop willing me to take photos all the while. I wish I could have understood what he was trying to tell me. He seemed very proud of whatever it was he was doing – some kind of metal work I reckon.
I was touched by these everyday people doing everyday things happy to invite a stranger into their midst.
