  1. Mumbai

    Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is the most populous city in India, and the fourth most populous city in the world, with a total metropolitan area population of approximately 20.5 million. Along with the neighbouring urban areas, including the cities of Navi Mumbai and Thane, it is one of the most populous urban regions in the world. Mumbai lies on the west coast of India and has a deep natural harbour. In 2009, Mumbai was named an Alpha world city. It is also the wealthiest city in India, and has the highest GDP of any city in South, West or Central Asia. Mumbai has been ranked 6th among top 10 global cities on billionaire count, ahead of Shanghai, Paris and Los Angeles. The seven islands that came to constitute Mumbai were home to communities of fishing colonies. For centuries, the islands were under the control of successive indigenous empires before being ceded to the Portuguese and subsequently to the British East India Company. During the mid-18th century, Mumbai was reshaped by the Hornby Vellard project, which undertook the reclamation of the area between the seven constituent islands from the sea. Completed by 1845, the project along with construction of major roads and railways transformed Bombay into a major seaport on the Arabian Sea. Economic and educational development characterised the city during the 19th century. It became a strong base for the Indian independence movement during the early 20th century. When India became independent in 1947, the city was incorporated into Bombay State. In 1960, following the Samyukta Maharashtra movement, a new state of Maharashtra was created with Bombay as capital. The city was renamed Mumbai in 1996, the name being derived from the Koli goddess—Mumbadevi.

Examples of Mumbai in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Saludar a mumbai universidad! Acababa de cumplir 15 años, cuando me uní a la universidad de Mumbai, donde obtuve mis primeros dos grados - B.Sc. (Hons) en la química y la física, y la B.Sc. (Tecnología) en ingeniería química y tecnología de polímeros. I me considero muy afortunado y muy honrado de estudiar en los más prestigiosos institutos de la universidad de Bombay; Universidad Elphinstone, Instituto de la Ciencia, y UDCT. University of Mumbai era conocida entonces como la Universidad de Bombay, desde su creación en 1857 durante el gobierno Británico, para mí, fue realmente una experiencia impresionante, lleno de gracia y elegancia, a caminar a través de los grandes corredores de edificios universitarios bombay, o para entrar esos excelentes bibliotecas de la universidad o instituto Elphinstone de la ciencia (alias ris) o UDCT. Tengo millones de buenos recuerdos y preciosas de mis años de estudiante en la universidad de Mumbai, que involucra muchos momentos mágicos de mis mejores años de la adolescencia. Mi sincero saludo a la universidad de Mumbai, una de las mejores universidades del mundo, y mi alma mater favorito. Seguid así, University of Mumbai. Estamos orgullosos de ustedes - ¡siempre!

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Mumbai never ceases to amaze me, even after more than three decades since I left that city of dichotomies. The paradoxes are perplexing as much as disturbing, e.g. extreme riches juxtaposed with excruciating poverty; indifferent and hard-hearted people co-existing with amazingly generous and exceptionally kind role models; iconic malls, flyovers, skyscrapers and sea-links right next to disgustingly scattered slums; brilliant scientists and awesome artists living peacefully with blind faith and superstitions in daily lives etc are just a few paradoxes that come to mind. And yes, it’s only a tip of the iceberg. The city of dichotomies often leaves the visitor with a million questions that are so hard to answer.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Mumbai nunca deja de sorprenderme, incluso después de más de tres décadas desde que salí de esa ciudad de dicotomías. Las paradojas son desconcertantes tanto como inquietante, por ejemplo, la riqueza extremas yuxtapuestos con la pobreza atroz; personas indiferentes y duros de corazón co-existente con modelos increíblemente generosos y excepcionalmente amables; icónica comerciales, pasos elevados, los rascacielos y los enlaces al mar justo al lado de barrios marginales asquerosamente dispersos; brillantes científicos y artistas increíbles que viven en paz con la fe ciega y supersticiones en la vida cotidiana, etc son sólo algunas paradojas que vienen a la mente. y sí, es sólo la punta del iceberg. La ciudad de las dicotomías a menudo deja al visitante con un millón de preguntas que son tan difíciles de responder.

  4. Ajit Pawar:

    Every year, the first spell of rainfall throws normal life out of gear in Mumbai. An inquiry is needed into why this happens despite claims of preparations.

  5. Narinder Nayar:

    This is a real opportunity to give Mumbai what it doesn't have, to give it open space.
