Narrow streets around Crawford market....

are fun to walk through, if you have enough stamina to walk through these streets for hours because, once you are stuck inside those lanes, you have no options but to walk, you cannot take any vehicle inside these streets .

In one of those streets, there is a beautiful mosque. There is cloth market near this mosque, on the right of this mosque is a wholesale market for selling stationary, jewellery and handicrafted stuff and on the left of this market are the streets selling house-hold items like plastic wares, electricity and bathroom assessories.

We went to Crawford market to buy stationary for my school. This is the narrow street where you will find stationary.. This is one of the biggest wholesale bazaars of Mumbai that has narrow streets, so narrow that it is difficult to walk comfortably. Every street specializes in particular item. There are separate streets for clothes, jewelry, books and stationary, plastic wares, toys.

If you were to just browse, it would take you more than five hours to go through all these streets.

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
