Maximum city – Mumbai is best known as the commercial capital of Mumbai where the old and new coexists and reflects the dichotomy of a metropolis. A city that is at same time fast paced and yet houses in its many small corners trades and tradesmen who have been struggling to keep alive a legacy of traditional arts and crafts for generations. Students will get an opportunity to witness some of these disappearing trades and also listen to tales that are soon becoming passé.
