Coming Soon: Mumbai

Recent NYU faculty member Suketu Mehta on Mumbai, again: "Wherever we live, whether it's a hamlet in Holland or a skyscraper in Seattle, we will not be untouched by what happens in megacities like Bombay. Disease and genius, crime and religion, poverty and wealth, are all maximized there, and, given the cheap availability of air fares, are coming soon to a theater near you."


  • New York will soon become a Mumbai suburb? What fun. I though we were expanding eastward and northward, not westward. Though actually, we've already taken over the Middle East (at least its media), so NY can't be too far away.

    Mem: Buy Churchgate-Brooklyn travel pass.
