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 received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
