The Village is a part of the enormous sprawling Dubai Mall, located on its ground floor, consisting of a wide, straight pathway flanked by designer stores on both sides. And a thousand colorful umbrellas are suspended from above to form the ceiling of the pathway, creating a mesmerizing cowl of color! Here are some of those umbrellas. Being an open area, this is the perfect place to head to do when you are tired of walking around in AC to do some window-shopping in open air.

On an insanely sunny afternoon, under a brilliant blue sky, SER Santragachi SRC shed’s brick red WAP4 #22398 cruises towards Baiyyappanahalli in Bangalore with the 12245 Howrah-Yeshwantpur Duronto Express on the very final leg of its journey with its characteristic Duronto-liveried hybrid-LHB coaches. The WAP4 is painted brick red with a white stripe, unlike most WAP4s which are orange-red with a cream stripe. This 5350 hp electric locomotive hauls the train single-handedly for its entire 2500 km, 34-hour journey. This is also one of IR’s most successful Durontos, running on waiting lists the year round. See more pictures of the Howrah Duronto here and here.
An unexpected surprise at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo, the king of going fast, the Nissan GT-R! The GT-R is one of the quickest cars on the planet, being capable of going from 0 to 100 kph in just under 2 seconds! It is also those the type of car that is along with the Mitsubishi Evo/Lancer series, what came to be known as the staple of the racing scene, as the definitive sports car that will be at home equally on the track and on the street, epitomizing everyting that is right about Japanese supercars. Also a personal favorite! The GT-R comes with a hand-made 3.8 Liter Twin Turbo V6 capable of 545 PS at 6400 RPM and 463 Nm from 3200-5800 RPM band! The Nissan GT-R is expected to be launched in India in September 2016 and will sport a price tag of 2 Crore. The car in the picture seems to be itching to race away!
Gleaming spotless in the Kerala summer sun, Erode’s freshly painted electric loco WAP4 #22665 looks in mint-fresh condition as it slams around a curve as it approaches Kalamasserry station near Ernakulam in Kerala with the 12075 Trivandrum – Kozhikode Jan Shatabdi Express. The train on the opposite track was the two-hour late running Yeshwantpur – Kochuveli Garib Rath Express. Its bright off-red puts up a contrasting picture from the green all around. This close up photo of the WAP4 was taken when it was doing around 80 kph. Rarely do you get to see such a spotlessly clean locomotive in India!
