My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is very informative. It captures the essence of Mumbai in simple words and allows for light humour also. I was actually inspired to talk one of these walks on a Sunday. Planning to buy a personal copy as a coffee table reference. In Ten Heritage Walks of Mumbai, the author takes you along many fascinating journeys through a different Mumbai altogether - oft-forgotten sights, sounds and roads. The book offers tourists as well as the city-bred junta a wider canvas to probe further into Mumbai's invaluable expanse of heritage sites, forgotten roads and public buildings - its magnificent monuments and structures. The book will throw light on many nuances of the city's priceless and intriguing past. The ten walks included here are a testimony to the city's rich history, each with an interesting story to narrate, an amusing take woven around it that has survived for centuries together.
