The R&K Guide To Mumbai

When the Portuguese built their island fort in a marshy mud flat on the Arabian Sea, they couldn’t possibly have envisioned the grand, chaotic future that little speck of land had in store. In the last five centuries, that island has grown into South Asia’s greatest city, a sky-scraping dream of a place, teetering giddily on the verge of collapse, laughing at its own improbability as it careens crazily into the future. Mumbai is loud, crowded, hectic, smelly, ambitious, eccentric, warm, and, above all, alive. It will leave you breathless, exhausted, and, inevitably, desperate for more.
