We’ve often heard Mumbai being called the ‘City of Dreams’ or the ‘Land that never sleeps’.

People sang the song “Bombay Meri Hai” with such pride!

However, can that be said for the scenario of Bombay today? 

I compiled a few photographs of Bombay and Mumbai to note the drastic change in the city’s conditions.

1. Colaba

Then

vs

Now

The traffic you’d find on this route is unfathomable. To enjoy your visit there, you have to plan your trip at least a day before.

2. Dadar Railway Station

Then

vs

Now

This change is definitely a result of negligence. If the station was well kept, it wouldn’t be in the state that it is today.

3. Cuff Parade

Then

vs

Now

I guess we Mumbaikars can say goodbye to empty lands.

4. Streets

Then

vs

Now

At this point, if there aren’t any potholes in my route, I am more astonished than relieved.

5. Flora Fountain

Then

vs

Now

6. Bombay Central

Then

vs

Now

Though the station looks presentable from outside, it is, according to me, a mess on the inside.

7. Churchgate

Then

vs

Now

Guess Mumbai’s ‘icon’ is the only thing that’ll be maintained.
