Mystical Mumbai

My name is Shailesh and I work as a tour guide in Mumbai. I am passionate and fascinated by the history and architecture of the city. While I am a local, I've also read countless books, and many times my friends and family use me as a human search engine for all things Mumbai. I would love to share with you our local lifestyle in the slums of Mumbai.
