It was a quiet Sunday morning and I was at my cousin’s place in Goregaon, Mumbai. We were expecting a couple of friends of ours to arrive around lunch, as we hadn’t seen each other for a quite a few weeks. The four of us usually travel on short trips around the country, but it had been a while since our last one.
We decided to head out to Sanjay Gandhi National Park, a 15-minute drive from Goregaon. This park, located in Borivili is a lush green forest during the monsoon and its proximity to the city makes it an ideal destination for many a revelers for a quick getaway.
We headed out, not sure what to expect. All of us had lived in the city for over 25 years, but had never visited this abode literally 15 minutes away from us.
