Mumbai – The Financial Capital

Mumbai- The Financial Capital

The shuttle landed in Mumbai and the tourist stepped out of it with a lot of excitement. After all, he was visiting his city after a gap of decades. Although the nature of his visit was professional, the visit reminded him of his personal bond with the city. The electric newspaper, which he carried in his hand, flashed a headline, which read as Mumbai becomes the financial capital of the world. On exiting the air shuttle port, he waited for his ride to arrive. A taxi which floated four feet in the air arrived at the precise time it was scheduled to. The tourist hopped in his modern ride and typed in his destination.

As the self driven taxi moved swiftly towards its destination, the tourist looked at the city through the window. The slums were replaced by huge buildings. Multi storied flyovers crossed each other. Metros and mono rails had become obsolete, the city had moved to a new form of transportation called as the Swing. The city had become electric and electricity had replaced paper money. Mumbai had transformed into a perfect city. I know this is a dream and a distant one at that. Only time will tell whether this dream is converted to reality or not. For now, it’s back to the present.
Mumbai is the financial capital of India. It is amongst the most sought after destinations for tourists. Mumbai has various landmarks and it acts as a hub for trade, business and industries. Top notch financial institutions like the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) are located in Mumbai. It is also home to corporate headquarters of various national as well as multinational corporations.

The four stalwarts of Indian business, namely the Tatas, Birlas, Ambanis and the Wadias consider Mumbai to be their home. Mumbai also has a port, textile industries and the Hindi film industry popularly known as Bollywood. The real estate prices are skyrocketing day by day. Going by what the recent reports suggest, one night’s stay in Mumbai city is the costliest in comparison to other cities of the country. Astrologers have predicted that by 2015 a new city will challenge Mumbai for the position of financial capital of India. Let’s see if the astrologers are right or my far-fetched dream comes true.
