.: Mumbai (Bombay)
Have quite a fond memories about Bombay. Probably, it was amongst the finest trip that I ever had before. Bombay or Mumbai as it popularly called, has given me memories that are going to last for a long period of time or may be for the time when I will once again visit the abode.
In fact, to be frank, I never felt that I was out of town, the only diiference was that here the people had a different color. Bombay is a modern commercial city and so cosmopolitan in its appearance and habits that the visitor feels at home immediately on arrival. Intrestingly, Bombay is the capital of Maharashtra and gateway to this beguiling sub-continent.
The hindi word Mumbai is derived from Mumbadevi, the patron goddess of the Koli fisher folk, the oldest inhabitants of Bombay. Through net, I came to know that the name Bombay, in its final form, dates back to the 18th century. In fact, Bombay was a cluster of seven islands called Heptanasia by Ptolemy in 150 A.D. Geologically, Bombay forms a part of peninsular India, which is considered to be the oldest part of the country.
