I’ve been living in Mumbai (Bombay then) since 1988. I practically grew up with this city. We’ve experienced a lot together. Right from the early days of colour tv, the riots, the bomb blast, the change of identity (from Bombay to Mumbai), the terrorist attack, winning the cricket world cu up until experiencing the metro and it goes on and on… the list never stops!
