It's about the mafia in Mumbai from the 50s onwards and focuses on Dawood Ibrahim, a notorious don who resided or resides in Dubai and still runs a lot of mafia operations. Shamik told me an Indian mafia boss lived in Dubai when I was there and we drove ...

Just chillin on da beach

... here. To the back of the beach there is a tall cliff with a single pathway along and tonnes of little bohemian restaurants and shops selling little trinkets and souvenirs and custom made clothes. In the tourist season these would be playing trance music and would be full of travelers drinking and smoking but at the moment most of them are pretty empty. I'm sure the atmosphere would be great with more people. At the ...

Finding the harmony and peace within my soul

... hr. Satsang happened first thing of every morning and last thing of every evening. It got very tedious. We had a run down of tomorrows schedule, then instructed to go straight to bed in absolute silence, to preserve our energy and avoid over stimulating the mind. We interpreted this as just whisper quietly, we cant go 5 minutes without commenting on something on a normal day, nevermind all the weird things we were seeing here! In the ashram we followed ...

    Situated on a hill on the outskirts of the city, we were pleased to have the quiet and the breeze that this afforded. We had the large double and it was spacious and airy with a lovely verandah to sit in. We found a local restaurants within walking distance for lunch and went into the city for dinner on the first evening and had a meal in the homestay the other, before our early start in the morning back home. All the food at Graceful was good and tasty, and Giles, Sylvia and Elsie thoughtful and helpful hosts.
