More than six lakh people took the streets on Wednesday to participate in the Maratha Kranti Morcha, a silent protest march from Byculla to Azad Maidan.

Hindustan Times took a 360-degree camera to the venue to capture the sights and sounds of this massive demonstration and take you right to its heart.

The Maratha community has been demanding reservation in government jobs and education. This was their third attempt to hold a march in Mumbai, after the first two failed following internal differences.
