The photos in this post were taken in Juhu Beach, an upscale neighbourhood of Mumbai. Juhu beach is also a preferred destination among filmmakers for the shooting of a lot of Bollywood films and therefore home to many Bollywood celebrities.
The area surrounding the Juhu beach is home to the houses of some of the most popular Bollywood celebrities including Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Ashit Lathia, Anu Malik, Mahesh Bhatt, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Dharmendra, Bobby Deol, Sunny Deol, Hrithik Roshan, Anupam Kher, Shakti Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, and Varun Dhawan among a lot of others. It’s the same reason why Juhu is often referred to as the Beverly Hills of Bollywood.
In: Times of India.
Not knowing any of these film celebrities, I was content to sit in the lobby of the hotel, either sipping tea or a beer and reading The Times of India and The Mumbai Mirror.
I was so exhausted from the stimulation of India that all I wished to do was absorb where I was. The only roaming around I did was in the area where I was staying.

Entrance to a Jain community
- Jainism is perhaps one of the most ancient religious traditions of not just India but the world.
- Jainism is the only religion wherein all followers, both monks and practicing lay persons of all sects and traditions, are required to be vegetarian.
- Jains have been an important presence in Indian culture, contributing to Indian philosophy, art, architecture, sciences, and the politics of Mahatma Gandhi, which led to Indian independence.
- Mahatma Gandhi took many walks at Juhu Beach.
The beach is also famous for many Mahatma Gandhi walks as a protest during independence struggle.
There is no path to peace. Peace is the path.
This is the end of My India posts.
