Welcome to the home page of Mumbai Live. We hope that you find the useful site.

 MUMBAI – the “Hub Purims “of India, is the country’s commercial capital.  A vibrant city, Mumbai is home to over 21 million people, comprising industrialists, businessmen, traders, while collar employees, blue collar workers, slum dwellers etc.

 The city moves at a fast pace. In addition to hectic activity during the day, it has an active night life. MUMBAI NEVER SLEEPS!!!

 History

 Originally an archipelago of seven islands, inhabited only by the Kolis (fisherfolk) and Agris (cultivators), the city passed through the hands of several rulers. The British gave the city its modern character, by reclaiming vast tracts of waterways, and developing the city into a major port, trading center and textile hub.
