Tucked away in the north-west corner of what was once the island of Bandra is Chuim, a former farming hamlet mostly inhabited by the city's original inhabitants, the East Indian community. Thanks to its far-flung location from the bustling town of Bandra, Chuim was perhaps the last of the East Indian pakhadis to get integrated into the suburb, and is relatively lesser-known than its hipster cousins, the villages of Pali and Ranwar. On our new walk #ChuimChronicles, we explore this distant corner of Bandra and and talk about East Indian culture, customs, traditions and heritage.
