Bombay - The Power of Place and the Idea of the City

http://ccnmtl.columbia.edu/projects/broadcast/midnightschildren/

"Our Bombay, Padma!...The city grew at breakneck speed, acquiring a cathedral and an equestrian statue of the Mahratta warrior-king Sivaji which (we used to think) came to life at night and galloped awesomely through the city streets -- right along Marine drive!" The centrality of Bombay in the novel Midnight's Children inspires a discussion about the dynamic power of a world city that is as palpable in the imagination as it is in reality.
