Diamond mania at Juhu

A week after the rumours spread people are still heading to juhu chowpatty for the diamonds, a great equalizer and leveler the gold rush oops diamond rush has seen rich and the poor scavenging the dirty beach for the stones :))

Sometimes the mob psychosis can never be explained, I too was once part this kinda great search a few years ago.
When in college we guys used to go to he beach on Monday's to try our luck with gold, precious jewels, coins, and other stuff...Apart from dirtying my hands and clothes, I did manage to find a 1 gm gold part of some ladies locket.

Juhu, Dadar, Girgaum Chowpatty, Aksa, Madh, Gorai beaches each have over 2 lakh visitors every Sunday, there is a very high probability that they will lose something or drop something.... If you are lucky Bombay beaches can be a gold-diamond mine :))
Take a metal detector to increase the probability factor :)
