There are quite a few Bandra handles on social media. One of the most delightful handles on Instagram focusing on the bungalows of Bandra is @bylanes_ofbandra

Alishka Anand runs the account and posts her interpretation on the names of these homes along with the pictures, which makes her Instagram account feel like a blog with some interesting stories to tell.

Here is a short interview with Alishka below.


What is your relationship with Bandra?

​New, and now exploratory in nature – mostly because of my blog which keeps me on my feet and allows me to discover wonderful homes in this charming and vintage suburb. ​

Tell us your Favourite place in Bandra?

So many, but I guess if I had to choose it would be between Joggers Park (where I jog and feel quite disconnected from the rest of the world) & the countless coffee shops(the village shop, birdsong, the bagel shop) which instantaneously ​give me a sense of calm.

Tell us about your fondest Bandra memory?

​When I first moved to Bandra a year ago, I felt a renewed appreciation for the city I live in​ – I was climbing down Mount Mary Steps and the view of the sea link and city from there is marvellous.

How did you come up with the @bylanes_ofbandra initiative?

On a drive through Bandra, a close friend & I were discussing how interesting the names of the houses were in the neighbourhood, the one we discussed was Sylva Condor to be specific. ​She said it would be a crime not to document these, and I wholeheartedly agreed. That’s how my love affair with Bandra’s bylanes began.

Which is your favourite 3 bungalows in Bandra from your Instagram account?

Adelaide: This bright and chirpy red house right opposite the restaurant Villa Vandre. It has heaps of character and an adorable porch to match.

St Anne’s Rest: A green bungalow, with a lovely garden and colourful, spinning pin wheels on the coconut palms that are in its courtyard. Simply magical.

The ‘Harry Potter’ House: As I named it because of its distinctive roof and shape. Its magical, you feel like you’re in Hogsmeade.
