#DiamondAtMumbaisTip - Colaba Tales by Shabnam Minwalla :Talk 80

Date: 03-Apr-2021 | Time: 6 PM

INR 0/- PER PERSON (All inclusive)

Just 200 years ago, Colaba was a scraggly strip of rocks rife with jackals, snakes and gun-wielding Armenian highwaymen. But land and sea were reshaped to transform the boondocks of Bombay into the lively, quirky neighbourhood that we know today. At our Online Talk #DiamondAtMumbaisTip, journalist and author Shabnam Minwalla describes the forces that made this possible and tells the compelling tale of a unique neighbourhood through the people, trees and buildings of the area.

Please note that the event link will be shared a couple of hours before the talk.
