You saw in one of my earlier posts, the birds at Aksa beach located in Malad, Mumbai. Best option if you are looking for beaches in and around mumbai. This post is more about the people at the beach, the sand, the water... well all in all the beach itself. Since it was a Sunday a lot of people were present at the beach with small kids playing in the sand and water and a little older kids playing cricket on the beach. There was also a small group, assuming they were from a Photography institute or a workshop with 2 models dressed for Indian Classical dance form called Bharatnatyam. The two models were posing and the photographers with the camera were experimenting with their cameras taking shots at various angles and perspectives. Well, my friend Bharat and I too tried to click a few snaps albeit without any permission from the group (Read the disclaimer below).
We also noticed that despite many warnings and drowning incidences, some people just don't understand and go for swimming. If you googled for Aksa beach and reached this blog post, please do make note that Aksa is one of the MOST DANGEROUS beaches for swimming so even if you do enter the water, don't go too far. The sand keeps on shifting and the currents are very strong.
