Mingle2's Mumbai chat rooms are full of fun, sexy singles like you.
Especially that feeling you get when you suddenly stumble upon Satyajit Ray’s "Feluda" in comic strip form.
All family run, these six shops, spread across the city, offer a history of Mumbai's reading habits -- from our colonial past (read: DH Lawrence and Dickens); to airport-friendly adult contemporary fiction from the 1980s and 1990s (read: Robin Cook and Michael Crichton); to the emergence of Indian writing in English, foreign fashion magazines and DVDs in the 2000s and even an encouraging demand for local Marathi literature these days -- all prove that Mumbai's readers are not only alive but doing well.
More than half a century ago, the entrance of Botawala Chambers would often see sailors in transit coming to stock up on cigars and tobacco at the shop just outside the building.
The shop was re-christened Smoker's Corner in honor of this tradition, by proprietor Suleman Botawala who set up a book shop in its place, with just a few books.
