The Independent, a British newspaper will no longer call India's commercial capital "Mumbai", and is planning to revert to the colonial "Bombay" instead. This is the brainchild of the paper's India-born editor Amol Rajan, and it's certainly not the first time Indians staying abroad have aired, silly, patronising, stereotyping and highly judgemental comments.

The Independent's decision to revert to using Bombay had nothing to do with British colonialism. It was driven by its India-born editor's stand on the political issues prevailing in the country of his birth. This is a remarkable development. An individual has attempted to reverse a sequence of events that the British government did not interfere with! It is also interesting to note that Mr Rajan has chosen to remain silent about his city of birth, Calcutta, which was renamed Kolkata.
The Independent has stepped outside the remit of journalism and waddled into a display of misguided political bravado where none is called for. India will survive, thank you very much, without a British paper owned by a Russian oligarch taking up the cudgels on its behalf.

When it comes to Parsi food, old Bombay is a gold mine. There are numerous establishments - some well known, others not-so-famous - that offer the various culinary delights of the community to all and sundry. To be in South Bombay and not sample Parsi food therefore is nothing short of sacrilege. Having sinned enough already, I am in no mood for another act of impiety, so off I go on a hot, humid afternoon for my pilgrimage.

India is an incredibly colourful place. And I'm not just talking about the tamarind that stains your hands, clothes, face, and everything around you - I'm talking about the contrast between its countless layers of people, animals, objects and all things beyond.
