(1933) Ali Chamber, Medows Street, Fort (presently Nagindas Master Road).

Back in the 1960s, riding his Triumph Tiger 100, Behram Khosravi was so tough that even Bombay’s local roughs- Mahim’s Alex Dada, Matunga’s Narayan Papaya, Shivaji Park’s Bhaskar Rao and Dadar’s Mania Surve- all kept a safe distance. Behram would cruise around Bombay and beyond supervising his father’s bakeries and restaurants spread across the city as well as manage the family’s vadis (orchards) located in the hinterland.

Today at 76, wearing a red Budweiser tee, his mean machine is a black and yellow taxi which he takes from his home in Mazagon to his restaurant Café Military at Medows Street.
