Our Home In Mumbai Our Home In Mumbai

Mumbai, situated in the state of Maharashtra, is one of the top four cities and is the commercial capital of India. The name Mumbai is an eponym, derived from the name of a local Goddess called Mumbadevi. The history of this beautiful city dates back to the formation of the seven islands, namely Colaba, Mazagaon, Mahim, Parel, Bombay Island, Worli and Old Woman's Island. The city is home to a small population of Bene Israelis who migrated from the Gulf several years ago for mercantile reasons. Mumbai is also home to many South East Asian communities and a small percentage of Europeans such as the Portuguese and French. A truly diverse city!
