My friend and I regularly go to Carter Road for evening walk. When tired, we sit on those benches facing the sea. The Bandra-Worli sea link is visible from this point. Last week at around 7:30pm, the sea link was suddenly flooded with pink light.
It looked beautiful, and I got curious. We decided to go for a short drive to Bandra reclamation for a closer look.
I was told that Estee Lauder had taken the task of lighting up the sea link every day between October 5th to 12th, in its bid to create awareness about Breast Cancer and to stress on the importance of its early detection.
The Bandra-Worli Sea Link thus joined the league with around 600 international landmarks that were illuminated for this cause.
The campaign works closely with local organization of the region and in Mumbai; it was involved with the Women’s Cancer Initiative- Tata Memorial Hospital and Ogaan Cancer Foundation.
It was a beautiful sight to witness and other monuments must have looked equally beautiful too.

It would have been a difference experience though, had I got a chance to drive through the sea-link during the week. I had even planned to return to Bandra from South Mumbai but getting caught in the traffic jam was the risk I was not willing to take
Well…next year perhaps…
