A COSMOPOLITAN METROPOLIS WHERE SYSCRAPERS COEXIST WITH SPRAWLING SLUMSMumbai is the largest city in India and the capital of Maharashtra state. As one of India’s largest ports it is the commercial capital of India, and an important trade gateway. The city is a cosmopolitan metropolis, where different cultures transcend and there is a liberal attitude towards others, unlike other parts of the country. It’s a city where skyscrapers coexist with sprawling slums, and despite India’/s economic growth, the disparity between rich and poor looms large. The city, which rarely sleeps at night, has recorded the fourth largest populace in the world. Mumbai is also the financial and business powerhouse, as well as the headquarters of the Indian entertainment industry and home to Bollywood. The city is historic, with a diversity of monuments, yet as it moves with the times and demand increases, the city embraces its new identity.
