Snapshots of Mumbai - Introduction

I was standing by the Gateway of India, reading the inscription that runs above the archway, and I turned to my friend and asked "..... so, what's the relationship between Britain and India then?" It was my second time in the country.

Gateway to India

Trying to surmise Mumbai is like looking for the end of a circle. It would fill a lifetime of books. But if you know the city these words and pictures might rest somewhere between nostalgia and a new perspective. If you are not yet familiar with Mumbai, they will introduce you to an important and beautiful manifestation of the human endeavor.

But if, like myself, you are looking to understand more about the history tying Britain and India together, then this book will help share that story through the mouths and eyes of others. Through snapshots of their city. Snapshots of Mumbai. – Ed King
