Bombay Ducks, Bombay Docks

“This book describes the lives of the traditional Koli fisherman of Bombay. Grandmother Aaji tells the story about the Kolis – the original inhabitants of Bombay. Their favorite food is a local fish, Bombil, also called Bombay Duck. How did the fish get this name? This fascinating story tells how the lives of the Koli fishermen got integrated to a megapolis. The book is adorned with lovely water color illustrations.”
