“The king of the opium trade, however, was Sir Jamsetjee Jejeebhoy, whose name is ubiquitous in the city’s public spaces. Few remember that the man whose name graces the famous art school Sir J. J. School of Art and the popular Sir J. J. Hospital earned his exalted place through drug trafficking.”
Gyan Prakash, MUMBAI FABLES

“There is also the fact that, unlike China, India is a democracy. Thus, Mumbai’s robust activism functions as a brake on the drive to impose from above the fantasy of a global city.”
Gyan Prakash, MUMBAI FABLES

“I am a walking, talking Bombay. … I loved that city then and I love it today.”
Gyan Prakash, MUMBAI FABLES
