My World #7

Click on image to view full size
Brihan Mumbai Mahanagarpalika or the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (BMC), is one of the largest civic bodies in the world.
Located across the road from Victoria Terminus station, it was designed by FW Stevens, who designed VT station, and completed in 1893. The imposing tower rises to a height of 235 feet above the ground. The outstanding feature of the building is the Council Chamber with a ceiling of unpolished teak. At the entrance stands a splendid bronze statue of Sir Pherozshah Mehta.



  1. Dear all,

    Pl. find below the link to the petition which outlines the minimum action that is expected of the government. Idea is to present a humungous amount of signatures (minimum 1 million, if the media participates unitedly, this no. can go upto even 20-30 million)

    A group of people from cross-section of the society (hopefully backed by a large rally and media coverage) will present this petition to the Prime Minister around the 15 December asking for a formal reply from the Government to the action expected by the public and the timeframes within which the action should be expected.

    Requesting not only your signature on the petition but also your support to forward this to all your friends. Should your organisation be maintaining any email databases, request your support to mass email this petition request to all on your database.
