Mumbai’s heart captured through word, image and poetry
Renowned poet and author Keki N Daruwalla released Niyogi Books’ new title, Bombay/Mumbai Immersions at a simple but elegant function organized by Bookwise Bookstore and Niyogi Books. The book is authored by Priya Sarukkai Chabria, poet, writer and translator and Christopher Taylor, an internationally acclaimed photographer. Bombay/Mumbai Immersions is a book of contemplative essays and art photographs. It gives the reader the experience of the city of Bombay/Mumbai with its pungent edginess, its geography, teeming personal histories, evidence of ruin and new rooting, its pulsing and often putrid corporality.
Conceptually stimulating, elegantly written and accompanied by haunting images, this book is a compassionate, dramatic and in depth take on the life of a cruel and captivating world metropolis even as it is an intense meditation on living in the 21st century.
