Interested to see horse-races? ot only the rich and VIP Mumbaikar likes it, but also the middle-class and even poor people go there to gamble! Such a huge difference just in few meters distance, but - very clear - there is a separation: the Club Members (the rich ones) and the Non-Members sit and gamble in different tribunes.

Mahalaxmi to me is synonymous to eating at Totes's... the most amazing flavorful awadhi biryani's .. the absolute magic in mouth of flavors that make your moan and groan with gastronomical pleasure... !!

My wife and I went on Saturday of the Indian Derby week. You get to see all the hoopla that goes with the Derby without the Derby day crowd. I did not know that you need a tie to get into the Members enclosure. But they sold ties there (because of the Derby week, I think) for Rs 100 and... More
