The unprecedented bouts of violence that ravaged Bombay in December 1992 and January1993 raised agonizing questions about how such a disaster could have occurred in India's modern metropolis.

The three main themes treated are about and enterprise; claims on land, housing, and health; and politics and populism. The contributors deal with the city's present, as well as with its roots in the recent and colonial past.

A poignant and moving statement on what constitutes the reality that is Bombay today the contribution stand out in terms of their commitment to the city and the traditions it have so long represented.

Displays fine scholarship, weaving the past history of the city into the framework of the most recent events mirrors the inner life of the city Business Standard.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
