Walking the streets of Mumbai in the early hours of the morning, photographer Mayur Tekchandaney, a long time resident of the city, discovers an unexpectedly quiet beauty: the happy coincidences of colour and patterns, the lyricism of place names, and the energy of its citizens. Still Bombay is his visual and verbal tribute to a city that hovers forever between collapse and hope.

For those who have never been to Bombay, the book opens up a palimpsest world where the story is built upon the story. Captions, asides, and essays alternate with the photographs and enable the reader to grasp the city as an interconnected network of narratives, neighbourhoods, and lives. The design of the book brings forward a parallel narrative, walking the reader through the pages as the author did through the neighbourhood.
