While entering the Taj Mahal hotel in Colaba one night just to get the view from the top, we were stopped by a policeman because my mate was Indian. The hotel was actually built by an Indian as he was sick of being refused entry to hotels when the British were still in charge. It seems Indians are still regarded as second class citizens in their own country. The policeman was drunk and my mate swung round at him thinking he was being grabbed by a hawker. He ended up in jail for the night and so did I as he was getting knocked about by the top dog policeman. Threats of the British Embassy still seem to work! I've put another couple of Mumbai stories on http://www.travelslang.com - travel tips site
