You decide (8) or On the street where I live



Ugly or futuristic? Impressive or monstrous? ( I am referring to the tower with terraces and stacked levels.) You decide.

After you've decided, you can follow this link, and if you do let me know whether you changed your mind!

P.S. It's the street where I live in Mumbai...

Oh my goodness, I read about this place just the other day. Sadly, I'm completely biased against it now and can only say it's a monstrosity for a family of only five (or some ridiculously small number) to take up a building of 20+ floors to themselves! Especially when such disparate incomes and lives are teeming about them. Sigh. I guess this happens in many places around the globe...including right in the States.

Futuristic and monstruous, but I think I'm saying that just because it looks out of place compared to what's around it. Now, let's see that link...

Jude & Camille - agree, monstrous... And against the culture of the city. In places like Mumbai (or for that matter NYC) there is some discretion in consuming wealth...

LA Playlist - Mumbai is a lot of fun -- you should go sometime!

OMG-I lived in the building in front of that monstrosity for years and luckily never had to see that. In fact I went back to Mumbai last year and refused to go back to Altamount Road so in my mind it'll always be the same, nice, leafy road I remember. Talk about coincidences!

Jane - quite troubling for me...

MM - amazing... previous to being a neighbor of this monstrosity (thankfully not in the shadow) we used to live across the street too! small world!

Ren - many thanks!
