Mumbai's very own laundry which starts functioning well before sunrise, with the sight of clothes lined in organized rows, the smell of murky washing soap and the sound of the clothes being violently 'thumped' against the flogging stone.

happy makar sankranti!

"Makar Sankranti is the day when the glorious Sun-God begins its ascendancy and entry into the Northern Hemisphere and thus it signifies an event wherein the Sun-God seems to remind their children that 'Tamaso Ma Jyotir Gamaya', may you go higher & higher, to more & more Light and never to Darkness."
- Festivals of India
