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.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)The ruling emotion today will be passion. You will feel like chatting with your beloved the whole day. However, you will incur expenses and Ganesha advises you to remain balanced. But if you have decided already to go the whole hog, make fully sure you are in the right trappings. You will thereby experience love and warmth for one and all.
