If Mumbai seems overcrowded to some, they are not incorrect. This land of opportunity is home for eighteen million people and about half of them - migrants from other cities and towns – live in slums and cling to dreams of making it big in this metropolis. Mumbai is the business, industrial, financial, and celluloid capital of India. Mumbai is the industrial hub of everything from textiles to petrochemicals, and responsible for half of India’s foreign trade. 
And while so many people are on the move, there are bound to be hunger pangs striking at any hour to so many commuters and busy bodies just going about on their daily chores…but there is a mind boggling range of roadside goodies that is hygienically prepared, guaranteed fresh (considering the output, there can be no other way!).
