Raghu Rai
'MumbaI' derives from the Sanskrit 'Maha Amba' - Great mother, and Mumbai is the combination of 'Mumba' with 'Ai' - the Marathi for 'Mother'.

For Raghu Rai, Mumbai has been like a mini New-York - the business hub of an over-crowded nation; a cultural melting pot overflowing with job-seekers, dreamers and dynamic businessmen with a high level of energy almost always palpable in a city wrought with social, cultural, religious and political tensions; and a metropolis that, like Kolkata, had been photographed extensively since the 1850's by some of the finest photographers in the world.
