“A person without knowledge of his past or origin is, is like a tree without roots”
The city of Bombay (now Mumbai) is a story – A story teller’s paradise. And each of these stories is best discovered on foot. So get your sneakers on and let us take you on a walk through ‘Bombay’.
These very streets still hide the clues of the stories of the rich and famous to the unknown toiler who walked these streets trying to build a life for them and in the pursuit built this magnificent city.
As you walk you will be able to distinguish the physical and cultural boundaries that divided the city into white town and native town.
