In Photos: Imagining a Mumbai Without Its Hustle and Bustle
Many of brightest cities in history have ended up in ruins. What if Mumbai was a ruined city?
Think Mumbai, and what is the first thing that comes to your mind?
Crowds of people jostling with each other to look for a sliver of space, a sweaty, stinky smell of the sea and a constant buzz echoing through the atmosphere. It is hard to imagine Mumbai bereft of people, shiny skyscrapers and being the centre of frenzied cultural activity.
Even the brightest jewels of civilisation witness a time when their allure is dulled to insignificance. Ancient Athens, Machu Pichhu, Mohenjodaro, Hampi.
What if we were able to peek into the future and Mumbai were added to this list too? An empty, dystopian and abandoned Mumbai, as if it’s many residents fled the seven islands on a moment’s notice with only a few survivors roaming around?
