Mumbai, the city of dreams

For $1 vegetarian meals and cutting-edge contemporary Japanese cuisine. For colonial mansions, 27-storey family homes, and miles of matchbox apartments. For morning ragas and after-hours rock and roll. For performances that start late and bars that shut early. For milky chai and gourmet coffee. For train tracks and Bollywood soundtracks. For villages within a metropolis. For outsiders with inside information. For its surrounding 18 million people. No place on earth is quite like Mumbai.

Where change is the only constant

Where change is the only constant Editors' Note

Businessman Dinesh Modi’s cluster of beautifully designed hexagon-shaped galleries inside the Mumbai University’s Kalina campus hold only three per cent of his coin collection. But the Dinesh Modi Numisnatics Museum showcases the best of his hoard.

Fish-shaped Chinese coins from 4BC, currency from the Harappan civilisation, temple tokens, coins from the reign of Mughal and Hindu emperors and banknotes from the colonial period. Look out for Dinesh Modi Numismatics Museum’s presentation of Shah Jehan’s dinner-plate-sized commemorative gold coin.
