Bombay, economic capital of India
“Arriving by sea or air you will be struck by Bombay’s [now Mumbai] lovely natural settings – the far away blue outlines of the majestic western ghats, the calm sea, dotted with fishing boats gliding smoothly under white sails, the palm fringed beaches (…) The Gateway of India as the entrance to the harbor is known as the most familiar landmark in the city. The massive edifice situated on the Apollo Bunder serves as a place of reception on important ceremonial occasions.”
