BombayWaali: Women Of Bombay

Our brand new series about the women of Mumbai kicks off with the very bold and vociferous Bachi Karkaria who has spent decades in the maximum city. The veteran Times of India journalist questions ‘why must Marathi culture be reduced to a vada pav?’ She asserts the city of Mumbai has its beginning in cultural heritage but some recent moves such as banning beef and focus on where and where not to serve Marathi food are among issues that are reducing a rich history to headline-grabbing statements.
