For long distance runners, we are more than happy to suggest a few alternate routes.



The area around TIFR is called Colaba. It is one of the oldest part of Mumbai. There are many landmarks, slums, highrises, sidewalks, and cafes that speak of many stories of the past. You cannot know the stories via a professional tourist tour. You need to spend sometime with a local to know the corners to turn to find a good story. A local resident of TIFR campus has agreed to take a walk with some conference participants in Colaba.

Time : January 14th, 17:00 hrs & January 17th at 17:00 hrs (we can change time and date if there is demand for another time)
Meeting place : Foyer, Homi Bhabha Auditorium, TIFR
Duration : 1-2 hours
Max capacity : 10-15 people (first e-mail first served!)

If you wish to confirm your participation in the walk, please send an email to Ashutosh Gupta at agupta@tifr.res.in
