When all in Urbs Prima in Indus lept to their feet

VINAY H, who took part in the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon yesterday, forwards a picture which captures the essence of the metropolis.

“I saw a few boys distributing water bottles to the marathoners who were on the run. I asked one of them if they had been told to distribute the water.

“The surprising answer I received was, “No”. The volunteers were there from six in the morning to nine holding high the spirit of Bombay.”
