About Mumbai

Mumbai city is a modern metropolis whose history is now fast fading into obscurity. Although many may not know the story behind the birth of this beautiful city, Mumbaikars are passionate about their rich past and heritage. The name Mumbai was derived from the name of a local Goddess called Mumbadevi. Mumbai is the business capital of India and is also one of the largest cities in the country.  Mumbai is the place where dreams of fame, money, and glory find a home in almost every  locals' mind. The cosmopolitan atmosphere of the city instantly makes you feel one with the people. Locals say that this is the best part about living in Mumbai. With a rich colonial past, and a diverse cultural ethos made up from the kaleidoscope of nationalities and ethnicities all calling Mumbai their home, this bustling city blends ithe epicentre of commercial India with the concept of modern India.
