NH7 inTown guru Sharanya takes you through her picks of what’s happening in Mumbai city this week.
Since the dawn of time, before man learned to draw things on walls, start fires and decided that a tail wasn’t really his thing, humankind has been plagued by one persistent conundrum – “I’m bored ya, what to do?” While it has presented itself in various ways, from “There’s nothing to do, the wheel is like so neolithic” to “Wazzaaa” to ‘Yo, what scenes bro?’ the problem has stayed the same. Until now.
With NH7 inTown, we hook you up with the coolest events happening in the Mumbai. Here are some we’re looking forward to this week. Click on the event titles for details.
