Bombay or Mumbai?

Gateway-3D

I’m nearing the end of my “vacation”/sabbatical in Mumbai and it’s the longest I’ve stayed at home in the last 8 years. Yet, I just can’t get myself to leave this city and move to my next assignment’s location.

Thought I should sketch my feelings into an attempted 3D artwork, mashing up different mediums – poster colours, oil pastels and colour pencils. What better than the iconic Gateway of India to represent Mumbai. Or Bombay, as I still like calling it. Nothing better than this song which immortalizes it:

“Ae dil, hai mushkil, jeena yahaan, Zara hatke, zara bachke, yeh hai Bambai meri jaan!”
