The book "The Making of a Metropolis: The Story of Bombay," authored by Mohanlal Popatlal Gandhi, comprehensively chronicles the historical evolution of Bombay (now Mumbai) from a small fisherman’s village to the country’s commercial capital during the 1970s. Written with meticulous research and a profound narrative, it reflects Gandhi's love for the city. Discovered by his offspring, Minaxi Kamath, after he died in 1996, the manuscript emphasizes the city's past and transformation into a modern metropolis. The project, a labour of love for the author's family, preserves authenticity by retaining historical names. The visual elements blend artworks depicting Bombay's past with contemporary photographs of present-day Mumbai. The publication provides a comprehensive overview of Bombay's history, growth, and development, highlighting its geographical significance, scenic setting, and natural Harbour. It includes a chronological visual presentation of the city's history, covering landmarks, trade, commerce, municipal services, and transportation infrastructure. The book aims to offer readers a quick and informative understanding of Bombay's rich past and its role as a dynamic urban centre. A must have book on Urbs Prima in India.
