The City Story

I write for The City Story, an independent website that documents interesting people, places, experiences and eating options in Mumbai and London. The writing is lucid, placid and devoid of attention-grabbing gimmicks. All stories are either about hidden gems in the metropolis, or urban icons looked at from a novel perspective. Each story is written in the first person and celebrates the voice of the writer. Everything is pinned onto a Google map of the city with an accompanying address, phone number, website or Facebook page, to help you explore the city on your own.
