Suzanne and I lived in Mumbai, India, from May 2009 (when we left New York/New Jersey) through July 2011 (when we moved to Singapore). There our home was in Hiranandani Gardens (Wiki), located in the Powai district of northern Mumbai. The top view looks from the Marriott Renaissance Hotel southwards across Lake Powai towards Hiranandani Gardens; note the grey Mumbai skies southward beyond Hiranandani.
In the lower photo the trees in the foreground are part of Nirvana Park, just below our window. In the near distance on the left hand third one can see a sliver of Lake Powai, while in the far distance of the center third is the beginning of Sanjay Gandhi National Park. To get to an extension of Powai Lake we go out the gate at the lower right corner and walk north, cross a very busy road here hidden by the trees, and enter a gate of I.I.T., the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (its website photos). The landscape then changes considerably.
