A plague struck the city of Mumbai in 1896. It caused many deaths, but also a few births - that of the first planned developments in the city. Up in the north of the island city, far from the congested areas of the Fort and the Native Town, the suburbs of Dadar, Matunga, Sion and Mahim came up to decongest the city. A Parsi cooperative housing society leased around a hundred plots in the upcoming suburb of Dadar. And around these plots grew the largest Zoroastrian enclave in the world. Our new walk #DeePeeCee explores this enclave, fondly called DPC by its residents, and tells stories around the D, P and C of it - Dadar, Parsis and the Colony.
