Mumbai Masti
Mumbai Masti
Description
From the Jacket

Enviable, Desirable, Greedy, Extravagant. What Mumbai is city of contradictions, where the wealthy and the poor live flank by flank. City of Dreams that can be cruel to losers. Here bubbles a stew of communities each lending it distinctive spice that blend together to create a flavour that is unmistakably Mumbai.

Mumbai MastiCaptures the distinctive iconography of a melting pot of communities through a distinctly unconventional prism, It audaciously brings together two diverse creative energies with electric results. Globaily acclaimed designer Krsna Mehta takes his signature visual narrative to new levels of edginess while urban analyst Bachi Karkaria’s textual commentary is at once incisive and cheeky. This is a funny, zany, unabashedly honest portrait of a city like no other, replete with its graphic streets, its people, its serial celebrations and its alter ego, Bollywood.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
