Hello MI Fans,
Last time when Mi India came Mumbai for Mi Grand Tour, Theytold us about international fan clubs & their activities they conduct alongwith mi fans, like Photo walk, Mi Pop Event etc. At the same they announcedabout Mi Fan Club India and told us soon we will have 5 mi fan clubs in India,and each city will have their president. I was very excited about it, butdidn’t think at that time that I will become president.
Soon after the event rohit posted thread where anyone canapply for presidential position of a selected cities. Soon result announcedthat me & @AnthraxNine9 (Anwar Shaikh) got selected as Mumbai Fan Club, Itwas like my dream came true.
Soon after that Rohit created Group where he explained us,what we supposed to do for fan club, and President of all cities need to comewith idea. Me and Anwar thought that lets do Photo walk as Mumbai has veryawesome scenic beauty & Old Heritage buildings. We had many option forphoto walk like Bandra fort & sealink, National Park, Hornimon circlegarden, Flora fountain, Gateway of India, CST Station, Taj Hotel and queen's necklace(Marine drive). We couldn’t finliase any as all places are very good, so wedecided to ask Mumbai fans, and they decided to visit CST, Flora Fountain,Gateway Of India & Marine Drive.
We shared our plan with Rohit, Rohit wanted to arrange it onsame day for all 5 cities & date decided was 8th May. For theevent, me & anwar wanted to make something unique & special present asa token for memory, so we decided to make badge for our fan club.
It was 8th May, we all decided to meet Near CSTStation. CST station (formally Victoria Terminus) is UNESCO World Heritagesite, which was built in 1887. Opposite to that there was another heritagebuilding of MCGM.
Our fans took some really great snaps of this site, have alook.

From there we walked towards iconic architecture of Mumbai,which was “Gateway of India”, which was located on the waterfront of ApolloBunder on South Mumbai. The structure was erected to commemorate the landing ofKing George V and Queen Mary at Apollo Bunder, when they visited India in 1911.Opposite to that we visited Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.
