Amchi Mumbai: The Gateway of India


Hello Readers! Today’s blog is about my little trip to Mumbai. The tile to my post says Amchi Mumbai, which means MY Mumbai in Marathi.

This is when you realize that watching the models walk the runway displaying designs by various known designers is not what a fashion show is all about.
