India: Mumbai (Bombay) - India's City of Dreams

Mumbai, formerly Bombay, is the capital of the state of Maharashtra, and is called India's "City of Dreams." It lies on the west coast looking out over the Arabian Sea, is the commercial capital of the country, and is also home to Bollywood, the largest film industry in the world. Host Sian Richards learns the secrets of grinding perfect Masala, a unique combination of spices she needs to prepare the featured recipe, fragrant Prawns Masala, which will be prepared by Chef Sheroy. She meets Manjari, a journalist, at Shivaji Terminus, formerly Victorian Terminus train station, and discovers on any given day there are over 6 million people who travel on the trains. She learns from Coach Sure, from the Cadet's Cricket's Academy in Brunei, how seriously Indians take Cricket; it's their national pastime. Mr. Bala shows her some of the most exquisite Sarees (Saris) in Mumbai; then her guide, Freni, takes her to explore the ancient cave temples on Elephanta Island, which date back over 1,400 years. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
