Gateway of India - Bombay

Bombay (a.k.a. Mumbai) is a city on the western coast of India.

A city of dreams. People from across India come to Bombay with the aim of making it big. And some of them manage it. Bombay gets the best out of it's people.

It is "the" biggest money spinner for India - this makes it the commercial capital of India.

It is the second most populous city in India - with a population of approximately 22 Million.

With all this, you must have made up an image of Bombay - or Mumbai as it is known now - an image of a cosmopolitan city, with skyscrapers, mass rapid transit systems, flashy cars, clean roads et all. 

But then - Bombay is only a limited version of all of this.

You should also have a look at how Bombay was - just 80 years back.
