He's Forgotten The Traffic Jams

"I miss the people of Mumbai — their maximum life-force and the stubborn ways in which they hold on to their crazy dreams. I miss Borkar's vadapav and Thursday nights at Olive and the psychedelic streetscape of the inner city."

That's Suketu Mehta riffing on the city he's written so evocatively about, as well as calling the decision to ban dance bars "stupid".

(For an account of a trip to the dance bar that Mehta calles "Sapphire", click here.)
