The ‘Mumbai Special’ tells the story of the seven islands over a span of 2000 years. Read about how Mumbai moved into the modern era as its transport system shifted from horses to trams to its current sprawling network. Not to be forgotten are the old forts of Mumbai and its many places of worship. And of course, no one can leave out the famous museums, beaches, eateries and landmarks of the megapolis or would rather experience the wonder of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai never ceases to amaze.
As Dr Jagadish Patil, Managing Director of the MTDC puts it in his introduction to the Mumbai Special, “It is humanly impossible to put the entire city between the covers of any one magazine. This issue is our humble attempt to bring to light some little known facts and features of Mumbai for tourists, travellers and Mumbaikars alike.”
