Shoe Polish

Shoe Polish Wallahs at Khar Station.

Khar and Mahim Stations in Mumbai were one of the worst hits station during the train serial blasts that hit the city last month and these guys were at ground zero when it happened but they still manage a smile for me. That’s spirit hats off to these fellows.

They told me how terrible it was and they described the utter chaos yet they ended by saying “Joh ho gaya ho goya, Abhi aage dekte hai” [what happened, happened, let’s look forward]

Style Bhai is incidently your Mumbaiya Lexicon for the day.

Style Bhai literally translates to “Brother with Style” – you can similarly use “Style Bhen” which translates to “Sister with Style”. Try it out.
