Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found (2004)[edit]

  • A city like Bombay, like New York, that is a recent creation on the planet and does not have a substantial indigenous population, is full of restless people. Those who have come here have not been at ease somewhere else. And unlike others who may have been equally uncomfortable wherever they came from, these people got up and moved. As I have discovered, having once moved, it is difficult to stop moving.
  • At the age of fourteen I had experienced a miracle. I turned on a tap, and clean water came gushing out.
