Glimpses: Pigeons at Gateway

Pigeons in front of Gateway of India
Udd ja kale kawa tere muh vich khandpawa

Any movie set in Mumbai has a scene in a love song where the heroine runs amid the fluttering pigeons in front of the Gateway of India and the hero watches her tenderly. After braving numerous obstacles like wind and rain and the reluctance to leave a cozy bed on an overcast morning, we landed up at the Gateway to emulate the scene, only to be thwarted by the greatest obstacle of them all- the Government of India. The pigeons were cordoned off, guarded by watchful policemen. To add insult to injury, they refused to fly for the camera, and the above is the best shot I could get. No flight of the pigeons, no Andrew Garfield looking out from a window of the Taj, no proposal before the Gateway. What has a girl got to do to get some romance in this world?
