Review:

I love Bombay. That was it's name when I was born. Bombay, Meri Jaan captures the spirit and the history of the city in a lucid and properly researched manner. Naresh Fernandes has a way with words and this book is a must read for all those wanting to know more of the city, or want to understand what makes Bombay tick. Bombay is an emotion. Mumbai is just a place --Sabira%20 Fernandes Mar 11, 2014
