The Gateway of India was a monument built during the British rule in India. Earlier it used to be a crude jetty used by fishermen of the area. It was renovated and this structure built, to make it befitting for prominent people to land. The structure used to be the first thing to be seen by visitors coming to Mumbai by boat. Now it is overshadowed by sky scrapers all around. The waters are choked with variety of boats. Catamarans and flashy yachts compete with age old ferries for space. The huge ships entering and exiting Mumbai harbor dominate all of them. But in the end it is peaceful co existence for all.
A week end trip of water color painting. Was not entirely happy but then.....

This a portrait of the Great man done in oils on paper. Worth every minute I spent on it.
