  • City Based Program- Mumbai
Overview
Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra and India's most dynamic, cosmopolitan and crowded city. The city’s name was officially changed from Bombay to Mumbai in 1995. A city of the past, present and future mixed into one, Mumbai is an island connected to the mainland by bridges. The country's financial center and its busiest port, Mumbai is also home to the world's biggest cinema industry, popularly known as 'Bollywood'. Some 15 million people, from billionaire tycoons to homeless pavement dwellers, live in this teeming megalopolis. Mumbai's most famous landmark, the Gateway of India, was the first site to greet travelers to Indian shores during the heyday of the British Raj.Ironically, it also became the exit point for British troops after India gained independence in 1947. It was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary in 1911, but in fact, the King and Queen were met with a mock cardboard and pastiche structure - the actual Triumphal Arch, built in honey colored basalt, was only completed in 1924.
