Let me tell you some more about my city: Mumbai used to be known as Bombay, but changed its name in 1995. Mumbai is also the Capital city of Maharashtra state. Mumbai is the most populated city in India with more than 18 million people living here. It has a wonderful port area and a deep natural harbour that allows many ships and tankers to pick up and drop off cargo. In the harbour area is a fabulous stone archway, famous throughout the world, it is called the Gateway to India.
