And here you can find a temple in the midst of these lively streets – the Mumba Devi temple. The goddess after whom the ancient name of the city changed i.e. from Bombay to Mumbai. The name Mumbai is derived from the goddess, ‘Mumba’, the patron deity of the Kolis, the earliest inhabitants of the island. And yeah how can you forget the political pressure to change the name from Bombay to Mumbai as Bombay gives a British colonial taste as per our politicians. Politics apart whether it is Bombay or Mumbai, it doesn’t matter; because the very essence of this city lies within itself and this is none other than the people living in the city.
