Hills, high-rises and hockey

The Sports Authority of India (SAI) training centre in Kandivali East, Mumbai is on a hill. The entry gate is just off the Western Express Highway and the road winds up about a kilometer. There are different facilities along the way, and a housing settlement too. The road finally ends at the top of the hill, at the SAI office. This is where the suburban press of The Times of India is also located.

So near, and yet so far away from the speeding cars and bustling streets, the AstroTurf hockey ground against the backdrop of the hills and high-rises is a hidden part of Amchi Mumbai!
