Last week I was in Mumbai for seven days , it was my art tour of Mumbai . actually I was invited from Prafulla Dahanukar Art Foundation , Mumbai , That Foundation was exhibited a very big art exhibition at Nehru Center Mumbai on date 30 March 2017 . so after online communication I thought, I should meet to live to Mr. Dahanukar or to team of PDAF . so I was planed for my Mumbai tour. My aim was only art and art and art in that tour .
IN Mumbai Day by day I was connected to art activities or to art galleries for art visit and I did met live to my online friends of Mumbai . In seven days I was shoot to myself and to art locations of Mumbai or that images I was shared on my facebook page , so on facebook a senior art promoter or my city person cum facebook friend Mr. Ashok Agarwal told me your photo update is like Mumbai Diary … his kind observation was gave me this post title so here I have use it . Mumbai Diary ..
My Mumbai tour was started by train journey , you know it , I am saving to money and taking my patience test when I live alone about myself art journey . so by Indian railway I was started my journey of Mumbai , I was booked my Sleeper class birth , by luck that birth was window birth so I enjoyed to landscape side seen from train . my journey was started on date 29 th march 2017 , it was day one of my Mumbai Journey after 10th years ,
Day second , I was in Mumbai , at Mumbai I have booked a guest house that’s name is Welcome Guest House , Bycalla East , Mumbai . There I got my bed for night stay with full rest in low cost rent . At guest house I was arrived at 11 am , there I did bathed and dress up then I came out to guest house for join to Art Exhibition of Prafulla Dahanukar Art Foundation , kind your information for my Identity I did wear the ID tag of PDAF so they were knew me as a artist of PDAF at Nehru Center . in four hours continue I was there and visited to art works of that big art exhibition and I did shoot some good art pictures of art works . In mid of time gape I did talked to juniors Artists and I did shoot to work of late great Artist Mrs. Prafulla Dahanukar . After that I did noticed to Mr. Dahanukar or his art interest , he was very great heart person he know , what art and artists need in their art journey , I saw in that exhibition all kind of art works were exhibited without any boundary , it was great movement of that art Exhibition . so a big Salute to Mr. Dahanukar , he is working like a plantation of art in our nation from his PDAF.
After Nehru Center I was went at TAO art gallery , there I was visited art work of my Online senior friend Sir Sameer Mondal , His water color nature painting ( Flowers ) .that was classic water color work of him .

School of art , I saw there some new art like calligraphy , sculpture , set design or ETC . but I could not talked to any art student because that was exam time there , so I was taken a one cup tea at canteen of Sir J.

Hussain that painting year 1949 , that work was very different to work of Hussian, it mean how to Hussain was created his art language in Painting? it is a research matter , I found that from that art exhibition . so a big thanks to Mumbai Art Society , there after visit to that exhibition in Night I was wrote a short note to Mumbai Art Society , in that note I wrote , the Mumbai art society should published to all art collection in a form of book with Hindi text , because in Hindi we have no much more good books for art students in subject INDIAN art. May be Mumbai Art Society will Notice my tens matter.

I shoot to Taj Hotel Top Dum and posted to Sir Ratan TATA , I did shared that Image on online with caption** The click of the day ** and some more images of gateway of India in different angles. . There my second day was closed in Mumbai, I came back at welcome Guest house by Mumbai Local train .
Day Four , I was started by walk from CST to till NCPA , Mumbai , first I was searched to some gallery so in mid way I was visited to Aajad Khel Madan Mumbai , that is a very old ground of Mumbai for cricket. After visit to Aajad maidan I went at Studio 3 gallery that was a artist home so I came back without meet to artist. After visit to Studio 3 gallery, I was joined to Mr. Prabhakar Sandeep , the owner of BAJAJ Art Gallery , Mumbai , Kind your Information he is my good friend on online , ( actually he is Noticing to me or my art activity on my facebook and time to time he is talking to me on art ) . many time sir Prabhakar sandeep was calling to me for join to his BAJAJ gallery in Mumbai, but last week I could Joined to him with my surprising presence . we did talked on art and art books of Hindi , or some other art informative talk . after meet to sir Prabhakar sandeep at BAJAJ art gallery I went to NCPA , there I was visited to theater but by luck there gallery was closed because that was Saturday . so I did shared some time at sea point nariman point or clicked some pictures of seascape .
Day Five , Sunday , I was dedicated my Sunday to Dr. Amitabh Bachchan ji, ( on online My E GURU JI ) . so I leaved welcome guest House at 7 am and at 9 am I was in front side of Home of Dr. Amitabh Bachchan ji . in Morning time Sir Bachchan ji was not in Home so his security was informed to me he will come back out to home for you in evening time so you come in evening time . there I was presented with four pencil portraits of him . so on a movement I was went in tens , I Thought what I do or not ?
But patience give way to life or vision , so I was taken a other step I went at Prithvi theater , there to I were posted some message to Dr. Amitabh bachchan ji or to Director of Prithvi theater Sir Karan kapoor or Sanjna Kapoor too . but at prithvi a active security person told me , it will start or open at 11 am so you leave this place now . I gave respect to his duty so came out to that place and went near sea at Juhu . There I shoot some pictures from a one point for mixing by photo editing work . it mean I were lived busy in art work or advance work in that tens matter condition. Ha ha . you can say I am great art master .. ha ha

Manoj ( Science teacher ) why we observe ? then Mr. Deshpande asked to me why a painter paint I can ask to you ? I said yes you can ask and I can answer to you , a artist paint for express to self , art is giving completeness , we are searching water on mars , on earth we have lots of water but we are not caring that or cleaning that for our use why ? that question was proved to my observation in mid of science observation all viewers were noticed to my talk silently that was must about their right observation . in last I said art is giving completeness but science is giving only confusions..
At 1 pm I came out to Prithvi theater and went near a young Mumbai Police man , he was very close with Dr. Amitabh bachchan House , the police man was very young and a very educative person so he was noticed to my tens , I did request to him can you put this portraits work for some time in your chamber , I want to eat some food so it will disturb to me or may be it can damage , he said to me ok you can put here I care it , first he was visited all portraits then he was trusted on me very well . he was noted my name and I gave him my mobile Number for note in his note book , so he did noted that .

At 3:30 pm I was sit at front side of Home of Dr. Amitabh bachchan ji in wait of Him . there I was found a very energetic young boy , a sports man master Kabir Kabbaddi . he told me his name Kabir Kabbadddi . he asked to me how to I can meet to Sir bachchan ? I said last 9 years to I am continue writing to him then today I can meet to him if he will invite to me in his office or home . so you can write a letter to him with your demand , kabir was wanted to play in Kabbaddi team pink panther of Sir Abhishek bachchan . I noticed he was wrote a letter on the spot in his very artistic or energetic mood , I liked his passion and wish for him . I sure one day he will play kabbaddi for our nation through team Pink panther . he was submitted his letter in hand of team member of Sir bachchan office . may be Sir Bachchan will notice his application plus passion of Kabbaddi .
When sir bachchan was came out for his all well wishers or fans that time I was very back side but after his one minute JHALAK ( Meet ) they all fans and well wishers were here and there and I was near the gate of Sir Bachchan ji. There I were submitted my art work ,pencil portraits in hand of Sir Raju , he was submitted in Office with My sketch book on that sketch book I got autograph of Sir Amitabh bachchan ji for me , in last movement I was shoot a picture of myself in front side of gate of Home Sir Amitabh bachchan ji with His autograph .
