DAILY PHOTO: A Ride Back in Time Through Post Offices

Mumbai, Taken in July of 2018

Post offices, like libraries, aren’t as lively as they once were. So it’s like a ride in a time machine to see the past grandiosity of these institutions.

Trimurti, a 3-headed Shiva; considered the masterpiece of the Elephanta Caves — at least since the titular elephant sculpture was moved to a Mumbai museum

NOTE: The name of this museum has changed. I’m using the old name not as a passive-aggressive, underhanded offering of support for colonial oppression, but rather because the new name is “The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya” and — like Twitter — I think my title block has a character limit. So if they’d like me to use the new name, they need to stop spinning the wheel and buy a vowel, already.
