When the Portuguese founded Bom Bahia in 1533, no one could have imagined a place like Mumbai. The city was formerly known as Bombay and is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. The sprawling city is modern India`s centre for business and commerce and home to the largest film industry in the world, even Hollywood cannot match the sheer number of films produced here each year. European style shopping centres, bars, nightclubs and multiplex cinemas are found everywhere. Gleaming skyscrapers stand side by sideĀ in strong contrast next to decrepit shacks, and modern automobiles cruise along next to ox-carts.
