Mumbai, the financial capital of India is blessed with a large & happening coastline. The city that is home to more than 2 Crore people might look like chaos from outside but then it runs in a very organized way. The local trains, city traffic, beaches everything displays an enormous amount of energy of the people of Mumbai. The city has seen bomb blasts, terrorist attacks, heavy rains choking the city completely, but the enthusiasm of the people of the city has never been affected.
This series “Organised Chaos” on the Maximum City, as Mumbai is popularly known as, is my way of seeing the city through my camera during my deputation at the city in connection with my professional commitments. The series depicts different moods of the city where chaos is visible but from another dimension, it is pretty organized.
