For hundreds of years Bombay held India in thrall. A metropolis, ‘reclaimed from ocean and iniquity’, it effortlessly manufactured the dreams that captivated a nation and drew fortune-seekers to it by the million. Once a princess’s dowry, these seven conjoined islands were settled through the years by probably the most diverse selection of people the Indian subcontinent has ever known; they proceeded to create a mishmash culture that perfectly reflected their heterogeneity and gave the city its unique verve. No longer. For a while now, Bombay’s charms have been wearing thin, other cities have change into more alluring, and disastrous new trends such as its ‘re-islanding’ into luxury ghettos, could spell its final descent into chaos and terminal decay. On this arresting new biography, award-winning author and journalist, Naresh Fernandes, writes with a mix of passion, exasperation, poignancy, empathy and great elegance about his beloved Bombay—giving us a very deep figuring out and appreciation of one of the vital world’s most iconic cities.
