From Rome with Love
A statue which stood at the foot of the hill, referred to as Our Lady of Sorrows was shipped by a family kin all the way from Rome. With love from Rome, the statue with its hands stretched ahead and looking towards heaven is one of its kinds.
During the period of Lent, Stations of the Cross would be enacted with everyone ascending to the top, just like they probably did at Mount Calvary around 2000 years ago. Fourteen crosses dotted the way and were spread across the hill, some of them diagonally opposite and some just few steps ahead of the latter.
The family who owned the holy turf now spread near, far and wide- have lovely memories of the place, just like my grandmother did. I am glad; I did get a chance to visit Calvario in Bandra and was able to capture many images of the place in its current despair.
