Project 365: Day 49 – India’s largest museum


19th August 2014 – Mumbai, India

In the desert, they built concrete oases and glittering fountains.
And the oil barons created gold from anything they could take.
Minarets and neon lights were both calling me lusciously.
but today I chose the opulence of a dream, over the sheikh.
The opulence of it all. - Mumbai, India

The opulence of it all. – Mumbai, India

I landed in Sharjah today morning and then took a bus to Dubai. The Emirates has literally left no stone unturned to impress me, with wealth showing its ugly head at every nook and corner. And I also clicked copious amount of pictures. But the picture of the day, is from the Mumbai Terminal 2, which I marvelled at and ogled at during the early morning hours.

Talking of airports, have you been in the Saudi airport, stuck for 12 hours? Click here for my experience!

The new airport terminal had just opened earlier this year, and probably has one of the most amazingly done airport interiors that I have come across. And a lot of my time went in admiring the Art Exhibit inside the airport. The walls of the airport are filled with 6000 pieces of Indian art, stretching to a total length of 1.2 KMs.

Now you know why BBC calls it “India’s largest museum.”
