Join us at Mumbai Riders on this walk hosted by Alisha Sadikot as we explore Mumbai’s most iconic neighbourhood on a walking tour that unearths and spotlights its hidden histories – the stories that lie behind, around, and within, the buildings, streets and spaces so familiar today.

We walk back through the area’s earliest history as a lonely island acquired by traders of the East India Co., follow its journey from a struggling fortified town into a crowded, cosmopolitan, trading centre, then to its place at the heart of 19th century developments that transformed Bombay into British India’s ‘first city’, and, finally, to area’s unique post-independence challenges and changes in identity.

On the way, we meet and hear from diarists, novelists and poets who share their experiences of the city now known as Mumbai, in their own voice, as only they can! Hear Mumbai’s many histories as told by some of your favourite authors and poets! From Rudyard Kipling to Salman Rushdie, Kala Ghoda’s triangle to the Bombay crow, Bombay then to Mumbai now, walk with us and the many words written on, and in, this city by the sea.
