Maritime museum

Friday, May 18, 2018

This refers to, 'Soon,a maritime museum in Mumbai (ADC, May 11).  Mumbai has a rich maritime history, and setting up a museum will fulfill the long-felt need.  Mumbai has fishing community - kolis.  A number of areas are koliwadas.   Sea has always fascinated human beings.  Even birds like crows and pigeons like to travel on ships - crisscrossing continents.  When there are plans to set up a marina in Mumbai,on the lines of airports, then setting up a maritime museum is also an integral part.  Mumbai also has a Yacht Club.  There are also plans for water transport - from Borivali to Nariman Point.  A city like Chennai has a lighthouse within the city limits - opposite Marina beach.  As kids, we have played with toy boats, running in a tub of water, powered by a diya.  Many households have replicas of ships - made of silver and wood - small maritime museum.
