to solve Bombay's woes? How about an SOS to the queen
My father speaks fondly of a Bombay that is entirely
foreign to me. It is a charmingly quaint place, where
rustic homes line ordered streets, and elegant horse-drawn
carriages transport commuters across the seven isles
that make up the city. The roads that service this urban
archipelago are immaculately clean, washed and scrubbed
in the wee hours every day. Gas-lit lamps illuminate
the long, narrow side streets and electric-powered streetcars
carry even the poorest workers to the commercial hubs
downtown. / By Leon D'Souza
