Entry Description

With 53,597 people per square mile, Mumbai (India) is among the top cities in the world when it comes to density of population. Scenes such as this one, where people of all age groups come together and share a limited space, is characteristic to the way of life in the city. However, this limited personal space also creates a unique kind of emotional bonding among the city residents. This sense of shared joy is what people mean when they talk about the 'spirit of Mumbai'.
