    Well to start with..read about you n we have many things in common. One to go with as of now is this blog post of yours. Was actually collecting few vintage photographs of Bombay and came across your blog. Nice work there. Haven't gone through your other blog posts, planning to do it bit by bit. One last time the reason why i'm leaving a comment behind…Great Job in collecting the photographs 😉
