A White Christmas in Bombay?

Snowmen that don't melt, and a tree with a light dusting of artificial snow are a slightly incongruous sight in hot, muggy Bombay. But this particular Christmas display was so tastefully done, I stopped in my tracks to take a second look, and then a third.

And once I was done, I stepped back a few feet, and saw this man trying to tighten the blade of his shovel with primitive tools fashioned out of nothing.

Wonder what the whole thing means to him - if it means anything at all.

Where is this Croma.Is it a mall. I dont remember seeing it even from outside.
I wonder what a real white Christmas would be like I can only imagine it. I dont think I would be able to bear the cold.If Bangalore' cold is bitter cold for me I wonder how I would describe the cold of the snow.I am best left in Bangalore.I dont travel too well so it is better I stay put at home.

The problem with planning a white Christmas is that the snow may not come that particular year. This year the snow started in the first week of December, but I think there was no White Christmas last year.

Incidentally, Croma is an electronics megastore on the same lane as Juhu Shoppers' Stop.
