4. Versova Beach
Always wanted to take that exotic vacation for the beautiful beaches it’s got? Our very own Versova beach is now worth staying back in Mumbai for that coveted beach vacay! After 85 weeks of cleaning up, the dirtiest beach of Mumbai has been transformed into one of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches the city has. Afroz Shah, a Mumbai-based lawyer who initiated the drive, managed to make it a mass initiative. It started off with just two people, and moved on to garnering over 500 Versova residents who took to beach-cleaning over the weekends.
t is said that over 5 million kilograms of waste has been collected over the weeks, with some areas of the beach having 5 feet of filth! Twiteratti took to numerous tweets and images of the new avatar of this Mumbai beach.
5. Basanti & Co
Who said North-Indian cuisine has to limit itself to the flavours of Punjab? Basanti & Co is exploring the North, but with different tastes. Awadh was definitely famous for its Nawabs and where you have Nawabs you know the food has to be top-notch. The Versova restaurant is giving Mumbai a chance to experience this royalty. There are no darbaars or Mahals, but the cuisine is the stuff of Royals. With an all-Awadhi menu, Basanti & Co is where you can get a taste of Lucknow.
