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.
