Last Local Photo Series –
The Mumbai local trains. This meandering web of locomotives that run through the city is Mumbai’s lifeline and perhaps the biggest part of its identity. Since the Mumbai local trains are such a huge part of an ordinary Mumbaikar’s life and over a million people travel on it every day, there are millions of stories that come out of it. The people who travel on these trains go through the struggles of traveling on it yet always have a weird sense of attachment towards it. I am bringing to you some of the great stories from the Mumbai through my which bring out the love affair of the city with its most favored means of transport.
I have shot many photos of Mumbai till now since I shifted from Surat, Gujarat in 2012; but last local from (Churchgate to Virar) & first local (Virar to Churchgate) fascinated me the most. In this photo series I focused on people and their daily activities in and around the local train.
