Mahim, the part of Mumbai, where I live, has always been in news… For all possible reasons.
Be it Bandra Worli Sea Link across the Mahim Creek, dubbed as one of the India’s engineering marvels or Mumbai bomb blasts.

A few days ago flamingos were spotted in Mithi river in Mahim Creek.
3 years ago thousands of people flocked to the Mahim creek, in the middle of the night, with buckets to taste the sea water that had suddenly turned sweet, a miracle attributed to 14th century’s Sufi Saint Baba Makhdoom Ali Mahimi!

Mahim is now again in news for a similar reason… another divine miracle.
This time its the legendary St. Michael’s Church that is in news.
Today “Bleeding” Christ is drawing thousands to the Church!
There is a 500 meter queue around the Church near my office to catch a glimpse of the miracle.
