Mumbai is a sea of people. Be it corporate, labours, taxi drivers, students, almost every Indian who wants to make their dreams come true, makes a beeline to this mega city, the city of seven islands. It was originally a part of the dowry of Catherine de Braganza when she married Charles II of England in 1661. He leased it to the British East India Company for £10 a year in 1668. The East India Company used the docks and converted it slowly into a trade-based established port town. They also started off the long process of reclaiming land and joining the islands, an activity which went on until the 1960s.
