Photographing Bombay has been one of my chief passions since I moved to the city about a decade ago. As Suketu Mehta writes in Maximum City, his magnum opus on the megalopolis, "There's no city as vast, diverse, and rich in experience, incident and sensation as this." Bombay, with all its sights, smells, and sounds, is infectious. And the city is best captured unplanned, unrehearsed and unintended--like when you're looking out of a train or when you're stranded in traffic or when you're making your way through the teeming millions.

This is the second part in a three-part series that will run this week at HuffPost India. For those who missed it, here's the first part.
