Misconceptions about mumbai and bombay

 

Political parties have always cached in on the Marathi Manoos agenda and Mumbai of the Marathis 'wrongly' conceptualized philosophy. In 1995 when Bal Thakeray lead 4 decade old Shiv Sena came into power in the state, the first thing the party did was to rename Bombay as Mumbai and the controversy has never stopped since then. Now, his nephew Raj Thakeray's MNS party is harking back to the '60s trying to outdo the Shiv Sena. Like how the British Raj named every street of the old Bombay after a colonel officer, Shiv Sena and MNS are trying to rename all those streets as after either Chhatrapati Shivaji or vir Savarkar. Imagine 15 different places in the city being named after Chhatrapati Shivaji.

However, if the change of names is cultural, so be it. There is nothing wrong in calling 'our' places by 'our' names but what the Sena and Raj Thakre (or Thakeray)'s MNS are violently trying to do here is to call 'their' places by 'their' names and 'their' means only Marathi and meant for Marathi Manoos and hence everybody else living in the city are outsiders. I mean, wow, by foolishly trying to force these on everyone, they are ignoring the history and the facts. Like Vir Sanghvi says, after perhaps a few decades or a generation, nobody even remember that the city was once called Bombay. But, time has to take it's own course. You can not force everybody to call it 'Mumbai' and 'Mumbai' only within a due course of time just because you have got no other broader issue to campaign in the upcoming elections.

I am personally not against the renaming of places if they are done for cultural purposes. Being a Gujarati, I also call it 'Mumbai' like Marathis also do. North Indians call it 'Bambai', Parsis, Christians and many others still prefer to call it 'Bombay'; and so on everybody call it by their own way of pronouncing the city. However, the official name of a place should belong to the people living in there and hence if we combine Marathi and Gujarati speaking population in the city, it will be about 70% of entire city's population. However, some 'extremist' parties, as Sonia Gandhi recently pronounced them so, prefer to do this for their violent political motives and for no other 'positive' cause.

I have tried to pen down some interesting misconceptions (I call them 'Myths') about the city versus with what is the actual truth. I am not against or with any community or regional beliefs but what I've written here are pure facts and hence they should be treated so as well. Kindly note that these are not what I 'personally' believe or want you to believe as well. If you have any diversified thoughts or you think any of the myth or truth I've pointed out are incorrect, please share the same via comments.

1. MYTH - Mumbai was built by Maharashtrians

TRUTH - Bombay/Mumbai, the city, was built by the Portuguese and the British. Before them there were Koli fishermen who used to live in a village near the temple of Mumbadevi (Maha Amba) and the village was called Mumbai.

2. MYTH - The original name of the city is Mumbai and not Bombay

TRUTH - The city as to what we know as today's Mumbai was originally architect by Portuguese and later on renamed as Bombay by the British Raj. Portuguese used to call the town - Bombaim (meaning 'good bay'), still common in Portuguese use.

3. MYTH - Maharashtrians alone have played a key role in the development of what is today's mega city Mumbai

TRUTH - Bombay's economic growth and development mainly can be credited to Parsis and Gujaratis before Marathis. The original residents were Kolis but they can't primarily be credited with the economical development of the islands which went on to be known as Bombay.

4. MYTH - Mumbai is a part of Maharashtra even since it's birth

TRUTH - Till 1960, Bombay city was a part of the erstwhile Bombay state and there was no Maharashtra into existence. Bombay state included the Western Gujarat (including Ahmadabad, Surat, Baroda) and Bombay city. Maharashtra state was formed after a violent movement lead by Samyukta Maharashtra Movement in 1960 and the Bombay state was partitioned into two parts - the Gujarati speaking parts were merged into the state of Gujarat and the Bombay city and some surrounding area including Thane were merged into the newly found state of Maharashtra. 5 districts from Hyderabad State (Now Andhra Pradesh) were also merged into the newly found Maharashtra state and one city from Madhyra Pradesh, Nagpur, was also merged into the new state of Maharashtra. Bombay Citizens' Committee, an advocacy group comprising of leading Gujarati industrialists lobbied for Bombay's independent status.

On May 1, 1960, after a movement for a separate Marathi state turned violent (105 people were killed by police at Flora Fountain which itself got renamed later on at Hutatma Chowk), the State of Bombay was partitioned into the States of Gujarat and Maharashtra.

5. MYTH - Mumbai is a Maharashtrian name and hence we should call the city Mumbai and not Bombay

TRUTH - Bombay city was a part of the erstwhile Bombay state which included Western Gujarat and Gujaratis used to call the city Mumbai and not Bombay.

6. MYTH - Mumbai has the highest number of migrants in entire India

TRUTH - Delhi has the highest number of migrants in India. 4 out of every 10 residents in Delhi are migrants - the highest in the country.

7. MYTH - The majority of migrants coming to Mumbai city are from North India

TRUTH - The majority of migrants coming to Mumbai city everyday are from Maharashtra's other parts itself. Maharashtra accounts for 37.5% of the city's migrant poopulation whereas Uttar Pradesh acounts for 24.3%.

8. MYTH - Marathis do not live outside of Maharashtra in a vast number

TRUTH - Surat and Baroda (Vadodara) have approx. 30-40% Marathi residents.

9. MYTH - Majority of Indians migrate only to Mumbai

TRUTH - 42 million Indians live in a state different from where they were born. 100 million Indians have left home over the last 15 years. 40% of India's migrants come to West Bengal, Delhi and Mumbai.

10. MYTH - Majority of people living in Mumbai are Marathis

TRUTH - Approx. 60% of Mumbai residents are non-Marathis including about 20% Gujaratis.

11. MYTH - Marathis are the sons-of-the-soil of Mumbai

TRUTH - The original residents of this place were Koli fishermen and the East Indians. [updated]

Dear Ratnesh,

You have contradicted yourself on one occassion atleast.

Maharashtra accounts for 37.5% of the city's migrant poopulation whereas Uttar Pradesh acounts for 24.3%. That is what you say. So your opinion is that 37.5 % is majority.

I am a Gujarati but I have lived in Maharashtra for 25 years, travelled extensively and I can tell you that Marathis outside Mumbai are not poor as you try to portray. A lot of people are earning a lot and they are getting more and more entrepreneurial. Your praise of UP clearly exposes your... more

Thank you Hiren and Dave..
I think i dont need to explain shit to this half mad guy Kiranpal. I think he is already frustreted in life and fucked up by some marathi guy..This is how some people make maharashtrians angry over social issues otherwise Gujarati and Bengali ,punjabi know how loving and peaceful marathi people are.. Such people encourages parties like MNS and Shivsena

Kudos to Hiren, Dave, Swapnil.

We know that the North India is fucked by UP/Bihar Upper castes resulting in brutal reactions from UP/Bihar Muslims and Dalits.

Dalits and Muslims are punishing these UP/Bihar Upper castes by voting Lalu and Mulayam still this morons have not come to terms.

Because of these fuckers SC/ST acts, Reservation, Dowry Acts, Girl Child acts, com... more

Hiren Vyas,
Bro, first of all u come out of the walls of Maharashtra. I am not portraying marathis as poor. You can check the facts because facts don't lie. Kindly, go through my earlier comments again and you can check their authenticity. Every state has a mixure of poor and rich people. My comments were in response to a Marathi chap swapnil who was claiming we marathis are very properous wit... more

You should also understand the news channels that u r watching are "Hindi News Channels" which most of the time cover only Hindi belt of this country i.e Delhi and UP which might have helped you in creating a negative image of Delhi and UP. Also, Hindi media doesn't have any interest in ur Maharashtra. UP being the largest state So definitely it has some administrative problems, which is quite nor... more

Swapnil,

Poor Marathi Chap, I think you must have got some solace from Hiren views. It is quite normal :-D but facts don't lie.Please don't get concerned about me whether I am frustrated in life or not. Again your views like "Gujarati, Bengali , Punjabi knows how peaceful and loving we marathis are...." shows your immaturity and lack of exposure to the outside world. Your parties like S... more

Dear black Marathi Dog,

I feel Sorry for you. There is a perfect term in Hindi called 'Chutiya' and it best suits you. Have you done any Phd in Castism ? From your comments, it appears your views are irrational and biased as you are associating everything with castism in UP/Bihar. As I said earlier are you a political pandit to decide how muslims and dalits o... more

You BC, whatever happened in Dadri is a shame for d country.and u still trying to associate it with UP this shows your narrow thinking. Secondly, do u expect d news of Maharashtra, Bengal or TamilNadu to come in Hindi media. Y... more

I think marathis should know the fact that they cannot do anything to stop immigrants from UP and Bihar . It is their constitutional right . Maharastrian cant stop it . Moreover marathis did nothing for freedom of country ..all was done by bhaiyas and biharis . Lakshmi bai fought for her territory only that too in Up. bal gagadhar fought only for maharastra .

To all the marathis out there,

Marathis are NOT peace loving. Show me one other state where there has been a party like shiv sena who's only agenda is to attack non marathis. Marathis dont like biharis because they compete with local people for jobs. Have you wondered why the jobs go to non-marathis? because they are more hard working. The fact is Marathis are a LAZY lot. Also in 2000 yea... more
