A World Called Mumbai

The first images that come to mind when thinking about India may be the palaces of Rajasthan, the sadhus and mood of Varanasi, the colorful and gritty environment of Kolkata or the streets of old Delhi. As for the the well-known city of Mumbai, this is a difficult city to navigate – messy, overly spread out, and noisy.
