Though the colonial city of Bombay was a symbol of British-Indian partnership with both sides contributing equally to the city’s development, its connections with the freedom struggle began in 1857 itself during the First War of Independence. Soon after that, Dadabhai Naoroji formalised the latent discontent into an organisation, and later, Lokmanya Tilak took it forward by taking it public. WIth Mahatma Gandhi and his arch-nemesis Mohamad Ali Jinnah taking over the mantle after Tilak’s death, the city became a hotbed of political activity related to the freedom movement. And at its epicentre was a little precinct stretching from Malabar Hill to Girgaon which witnessed many an important event in the freedom struggle. On our brand new #AzadHind heritage walk, we explore this precinct and tell stories of its connections with the Indian independence movement.
