An interesting book. It does give you a lot of hidden facts of Bombay. This is a city that I still refuse to call Mumbai. There is still a lot of energy and spirit left in the city, but it is fading. The jingoistic movements of local politicians is slowly robbing the city of its life.

While Gillian does an admirable job of tracing the history of the city, I wish she had written more about the "normal" Indian on the street, instead of focussing so much on the British who ruled India. She missed an opportunity to make a book that would have truly stood out. ( )
