India, Part Deux
We followed up Monday's visit to P&G with a meeting with Unilever on Tuesday morning. They talked with us about a great program they're running to promote handwashing with soap to improve health.

After our morning meeting, it was off to visit Banganga Tank, where legend says the Hindu god Ram shot an arrow into the ground and created a tributary from the Ganges river.

Other sightseeing stops for the day included the beautifully decorated Jain and Babulnath Temples, and a visit to the Hare Krishna Temple as well, where we had the opportunity to do some chanting.

Wednesday greeted us with a bus ride to Publicis Ambience ad agency, where we got an agency's take on business in India. After several large CPG visits, it was nice to see things through a different lens.
After making the trip back to the city center, we spent the afternoon seeing Mumbai on foot and capped off the day with another great dinner.

With only two days left in Mumbai...we'll save that recap for the next installment.
