His bikes are THE perfect motorcycles for the M2's design! . We have been fans of his work and inspired by bikes of this style for the M2. If you've been on the fence about getting the more forward design of the M2, this should settle it for you! . The photo shoot came out so stunning we made its own gallery!, check it out here"

Dhobi Ghat

Dhobi Ghat (Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat) is a well known open air laundromat in Mumbai, India.[1] The washers, locally known as Dhobis, work in the open to wash the clothes from Mumbai's hotels and hospitals.

There are rows of open-air concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone. Called the world's largest outdoor laundry, Dhobi Ghat is a very popular attraction among foreign tourists.

Bombay

Mumbai also known as Bombay, is the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is the most populous city in India and the ninth most populous agglomeration in the world, with an estimated city population of 18.4 million. Along with the neighbouring regions of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, it is one of the most populous urban regions in the world and the seсond most populous metropolitan area in India, with a population of 20.7 millions.

I’ve been to many countries around the world, but nothing could prepare me for the contrast that I was about to see in Mumbai.

I say contrast because of the two extremes — tall modern sky scrapers, to the extremely poor people, hanging out by the railroad tracks, begging for money, performing any job they can and eating whatever they can find. Sure, there’s definitely a middle class, a very large one in fact, but given Mumbai’s large population, it was a lot easier to see the clear division of social class.

Lavasa

Lavasa is a private, planned city being built near Pune. It is stylistically based on the Italian town Portofino, with a street and several buildings bearing the name of that town.

A 25,000 acres (100 km2) project being developed by HCC, this as-yet-incomplete city has been controversial for multiple reasons including procurement of land, harm to the environment,and loans acquired through political corruption.

In late 2010 the Indian Environment and Forests ministry ordered that construction cease because the project violated environmental laws. As of late 2011, this order has been rescinded. The project's scale may have been reduced, however, and an initial public offering may not occur. The head of the company building the project said in 2013 that due to the Environment and Forest Ministry the project had lost three years.

Kushti Wrestlers

Traditional Indian wrestling isn't just a sport - it's an ancient subculture where wrestlers live and train together and follow strict rules on everything from what they can eat to what they can do in their spare time. Drinking, smoking and even sex are off limits. The focus is on living a pure life, building strength and honing their wrestling skills.
