I recently spent a few hours in Parsi General hospital in Mumbai while I waited for my sis-in-law to come out of surgery.
Q: What do you do in a lovely heritage hospital with time to kill?
A: Make images obviously.
So I wandered around without straying more than a few minutes away from the waiting room and captured a few moments.
Photography means that I am never bored anymore!
Except of course I had forgotten to charge my phone and so once the battery died, with an hour of waiting to go, I had the toughest time keeping myself entertained. Luckily the property makes for a lovely and refreshing walk.
Greenery and fresh air bang in the middle of the city. A veritable green lung
Lots of space and plenty of content dogs
Beautiful wide corridors without people running each other over
Donations from generous Parsis all around the world keeps the hospital going.
Three huge operating theaters with a spacious waiting room.
A very charitable and fiendly hospital for less priviledged and old Parsis
An old chair that could pass of as a work of modern art
A funny incident occurred when an unwelcome pigeon refused to fly away
Finally it took spider-man to escort the pigeon out. The hospital is so peaceful and un-crowded that incidents like this were enjoyed by patients without complaint
As in most places the best mobile signal is by the windows. Fortunately that is also where you usually find the best light
Keeping guard of the operating theaters
The promise of dreams
