Mazagaon, one of the few remaining European remnants of Mumbai, is the hotbed of continuous metamorphosis due to its historic ability to encompass the new and the old of influences. Proof of this, is its possession of the spatial intersections of various religious & regional communities , such as the Maharashtrians, East Indians, Anglo-Indians, Catholic Konkanies, Khoja Muslims, Bori Muslims & many more.This walk wishes to showcase the rich cultural heritage that exists in Mazagaon, as well as provide a commentary on the existing social structure of the area. Included in this, are chronicles of Mazagaon’s forgotten past, stories of impending change and urban legends that continue to haunt its residents to this day. All in all, this is a walk to have a dialogue about how cities are made by and of people, and how it belongs to each of us, even the scary bits.
