E19: The Taj and the Electric Victoria

The Write Creed

22-09-2021 • 8 mins


This episode of The Write Creed starts with Eisha sitting in the Crystal Room of The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai as she gets nostalgic about the events she covered at the hotel when she was an intern at Bombay Times. It has been over a decade that she has spent some time at the hotel and she savours each moment she is there. The Gateway of India and Colaba Causeway are crowded as people make their way to immersing their Ganesh idols into the sea on occasion of Ganesh Visarjan. This year, thanks to Covid19, the celebrations are low-key. The most memorable part of their staycation at the Taj was a gift from the hotel, a ride in a new electric carriage, that has replaced the old horse-drawn Victoria carriages. A pollution-free golf cart-like experience in a part of Bombay she adores. What more could she want!
