Mumbai & Life

Recently I visited Mumbai for couple of days and found value of life at different level. In last one year, I have been in Bangalore, Singapore, Ahmedabad and Mumbai. Here are few observation:

  • It’s easy to get decent budget accommodation with breakfast in Singapore than Mumbai !
  • Traveling in Mumbai Local train is kind of must to stay in time-line and budget.
  • Mumbai’s Bandra Worli Sea Link is quite useful piece of infrastructure but it’s simple 5.6 km long bridge
    • With 60 Rs toll
    • Two-wheeler, auto & cycle not allowed
    • Has narrow entry/exit at Worli side

Last month, I was fortunate to visit Singapore and stay for 11 days. I visit more or less each corner of Singapore during my stay, right from Changi Chapel and Museum, East Cost Park, Marina Bay, NUS, NTU, Pioneer and many other places. Some of things I experience during my stay in Singapore are ease of local transport, focus on public (and even private) garden and free culture.

IMTEX 2015

As mentioned, I regularly visit IMTEX exhibition, this year was no exception.

All 5 halls were packed with plenty of machines on display right from Lathe, drilling machine to advance metal 3D Printer, Nano fabricators, Advance CNC controllers. Many machine part suppliers were also present exhibiting whole ecosystem. Even from such high variety of display of equipments, VMC (Vertical Milling Centre) was out numbered by large presence.
