mumbai“Dynamic, spirited, vibrant, fun, Mumbai is truly a city that never sleeps! One of the most modern city in India, it captures the essence of the changing pace set by liberalization and modernization. It is the countrys financial powerhouse and its vogue centre of fashion, film and after-dark frolics. Glistening skyscrapers and malls amid slums and grinding poverty, Mumbai has a lot of secrets that one can unfold.

Mumbais culture is a blend of traditional festivals, food, music and theatres. The city offers a cosmopolitan and diverse lifestyle with a variety of food, entertainment and night life, available in a form and abundance comparable to that in other world capitals. Mumbais history as a major trading centre has led to a diverse range of cultures, religions and cuisines coexisting in the city. This unique blend of cultures can be accredited to the migration of people from all over India since the British period.

Only once the initial shell shock of Mumbais chaos subsides, can one start to appreciate the citys allure, showcasing a wealth of art and grand colonial relics, cacophonic temples, warrens of bazaars, and the odd spiritual bastion of tranquility.
