The book
The day i had read its review in India today magazine,years ago,i had a strong memory for this book.It seemed interesting and knowledge full. So i can say i was well prepared for the book.Bombay, is a fascinating city with a mysterious charm to it.This book,is an autobiographical account by the author,of the financial capital of India. He has woven a biography of the city,covering a whole lot of aspects like history,bollywood,dance bars,politics,underworld,police etc.
The best part about the book,is the narrative style of the author.No way it gives you a feel of a travel guide book on Bombay.Its 584 pages doesn't seem enough,you crave to read more.
