Mumbai: A City of Dreams
This book offers its readers the delight of 'a literary walk-through' of one of the most remarkable cities of India. The city of hope, of dreams, of opportunity - this how Bombay (now Mumbai) appears to the migrant. Unlike many of India's traditional cities which grew around religious complexes and princely courts, Mumbai has remained quintessentially capitalist - modern, forward looking, intent on getting the work done.
Modern business requires both discipline and order, qualities that Mumbai has demonstrated in abundance. Unlike Delhi and Calcutta, the two other early megalopolises, the city spends least time in peripheral politicking.
