Unlock an archival treasure trove. Relive the euphoria of the opening of the first mill, the first railway, the first ship sailing into a dock that had defied all odds, the first film, the first fortunes made and ruined from speculation on cotton prices or matka gambling, the first call to Quit India, the first flight... It all began in Bombay for the country and for The Times of India. This book of rare archival clippings and photographs, along with racy connecting essays, captures a city and a nation in their march down the pages. The Bombay Times and Journal of Commerce was established in 1838 to spur the animal spirits unshackled by the end of John Companys trading monopoly. Bombay-Mumbai and The Times of India have been in a symbiotic cinch ever since. Both have grown in ways unimagined when that syndicate of extraordinary businessmen sensed that news was the lifeline of commerce and put their money where their hunch was.This 175 Years commemorative volume tracks the moves from the primacy of kapda to the pre-eminence of makaan, and the abiding sway of dhando and the deal. It takes in gangsters, scamsters and culture-vultures. It gives a finger-licking taste of how rice-plate co-exists with risotto and endorses the cultural melting pot which has fed the legend of a Bombay always hungry for more. Read to your fill.Printed Pages: 168.
