A must-buy for anyone living in or loving this Maximum City
A quirky doff of the hat to that fascinating beast, Mumbaiyya Hindi. Much more than a tongue-in- cheek dictionary of Bombay-Hindi words such as ‘bhai’, ‘bakra’ and ‘pandu’, Cutting Chai and Maska Pao is also an account of the social mores of India’s Maximum City. Words like ‘khau galli’, ‘nimbu mirchi’, ‘Italian barbers’ and ‘size zero’ each illustrate a part of the city’s living culture.
The book is enlivened by evocative photographs taken by the authors themselves – a personal take on the city that they all love passionately.
