Mumbai Paused Zine 05 – The Slow Issue

Back in 1853, when that first train chugged out of Bori Bunder, it was a wild ride. The mechanical clatter and speed spooked folks, critters and birds alike. But now, in this age of internet lightning and flying, trains seem like the slowpoke of transport.

So, let’s hop aboard the slow train in2023, eh? We’ll see all sorts of colourful characters, unexpected run-ins and familiar moments. It’ll be a wild ride, and all for the low, low price of 50 bucks (INR) or just one greenback if you’re outside India.

So come on, hop on board and let’s see where this ride takes us. Chalo Chalo! Let’s go.


It’s a photo book about trains, folks. One that speaks a universal language with just enough words to keep things interesting and prevent boredom. And the best part? It’s easy as pie to translate, just fire up one of them online tools. And what better lingo to use than Marathi, the official tongue of Maharashtra?

So, without further ado, I present to you the first Marathi version of the MUMBAIPAUSED Zine. Just fifty bucks, same as the language of our colonisers – English. Grab a copy and hop on the imaginary train. Let’s see where the tracks take us.
