Both comes from Newspaper headlines and Movie stories it is the sensational Mumbai the most interesting parts perhaps even the parts with most vitality The ones always on the margins and yet always in the spotlight Viewed mostly indirectly Mehta gives a rare and direct view but yet fails to capture a perfect shot or even a good enough oneIsn’t it hard to imagine reading such a huge and largely admired book and find towards the end that noth

And the book comes highly r
