On Independence day (Sunday 15-8-2010) i did my own cause for a pollution free environment awareness in Mumbai by cycling from Prabhadevi To Bandra's mount Mary hill and back to "Rang Sharda" theatre to watch the Konkani play,"Koxxt Tarvotteanche(Trials of seafarers). Shockingly, i was denied "Cycle Parking" in the theatre premises by the watchman, although my bike was a brand new "Fomas Racer" and definitely not an eyesore to the sleek motorcycles and cars of the "Parking area". On inquiries the watchmen told me that cycles have never been allowed inside the "Rang Sharda" theatre complex although he ultimately allowed me to park my cycle inbetween the motocycles. I have also faced this same predicament at "Poonam chambers' in Worli where i had to park my cycle outside the commercial office complexes, although i presumed that the reason could be the shabby old looks of the "Hero Hawk"! I have been cycling since decades and happy to note that cycles upwards of a lakh of rupees are being purchased by Mumbai hobby bicyclists post "1992 economic Liberalisation" of the indian economy. Now the only rule remaining is the abolition of "CYCLING PARKING APARTHEID" against cycle users at Mumbai's posh commercial complexes and shopping malls.Independence Day "Cycle Marathons" have no meaning if the humble but extremely sophisticated, pollution free and reliable "Cycle" is banned from "Parking Lots" in Mumbai's glamorous malls and theatres.
