Naresh has written quite a painful account of what has been happening to Bombay over the years. There is no doubt that the city is under tremendous pressure being landlocked and being the capital of almost everything be it, financial, bollywood or corporates. What I particularly liked in the book is that Naresh has taken us through the history of the city, its present state and has also foretold where it is going to go.
Naresh has also discussed in detail (somewhat through opinions) not just the economic journey of the city but also the political and commercial journey. All these put together have made Bombay what it is today. Nothing in isolation. No doubt, the city needs repair and attention. Some other cities have come up massively over time and that has been Bombay's loss. The pain is well reflected in the tone used in the book.
