A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed, and is, thereby, a true manifestation of what one feels about life in it's entirety. . . I believe in photography as one means of achieving an ultimate happiness and faith! - Ansel Adams

Maximum City, Mumbai - C.S.T.



Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (C.S.T.) is India's premier & busiest railway station where trains on the suburban Central line terminate. It is a UNESCO world heritage structure and also serves as the Central Railways' headquarters. It is named after the famous 17th century Maratha King and warrior Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj (depicted below).
In fact I remember spending a night at the station (sleeping on the platform on newspaper sheets) having missed the last train to Mulund while returning from a college function.

Located opposite C.S.T. is another heritage building which serves as the headquarters of Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). It is currently being given a face-lift and hence its fa├žade was covered .
