    eBook City Adrift PDF å Ð baienme Ð city free, adrift free, City Adrift ePUBA lovely little book which serves as a biography for the crazy city I call my home now The best part about the book is that it does away with all the grand standing and romanticisation of the city which is apparent in a lot of books about Bombay Nor is it a view of the gritty and seedy underbelly of the city focussing on slums and the underwor

    eBook City Adrift PDF å Ð baienme Ð city free, adrift free, City Adrift ePUBInteresting book that displays the meticulous research done by the author in trying to pen a short biography of Bombay He chooses to call the city by its older name Bombay and that is indicative of his thoughts and inclinations on the city and how it is evolving There's snippets of trivia and interesting factoids but overall the big theme that the author takes forward is that Mumbai has never been subjected to planned development and probably never will be And that is a constant lament through the bookI felt he could have written some about the Parsee community in Bombay and their contributions to its development or when discussing socio economic shifts the uniue Baugs that the Parsees created for themselves to house their kin But then its a short biography So what we read is what we get

    eBook City Adrift PDF å Ð baienme Ð city free, adrift free, City Adrift ePUBThis review might be biased for it is the story of the city I love A narrative that reminds me of the movie Man from Earth but just on the 'beautiful city yet horrible place' of Bombay The author's story of the city is short crisp and fluid The pre Independence part 1 of the book makes you want to go re discover your city now armed with the remarkable narratives of some areas None of the weekend excursions that I planned in my head as I read along was compelling than my wish to go to Nalasopara to visit the remains of a Mauryan Age stupa The second part of the book takes on a political tone bound to polarize readers but the shift in voice too is indicative of the transformation our city went through This is however Naresh Fernandes' story of the city and he delivers it as his ringside spectator view of the city through centuries
