Mumbai. Who she is and what she can be to all those who dwell in her, cannot be summed in words. And yet she has an array of adjectives to her name. The maximum city, the city of dreams, the city that never sleeps, the city that does not let you sleep and the one that bounces back within 24 hours of any human or manmade disaster.
And while she has numerous odes and poems penned about her beauty, a few pictures captured by Pranshu Dubey, who runs PixelDo, an aerial photography company, are winning the hearts of netizens!
From the iconic Haji Ali to the Worli Bay and a breathtaking bird’s eye view of the Mahim creek with the sea-link in the background, these pictures capturing the visual beauty of this chaotic yet magnanimous metro will blow your mind!
Take a look at a few here:

Speaking to Condé Nast Traveler, Pranshu Dubey, the man behind these stunning pictures said, “My aim is to show the beauty of Mumbai. Most people think of it as a place full of slums, but I want to show the world is that Mumbai is about more—it is beautiful, and developing like any other big city of the world.”
