You forgot to mention Badshah Faloodas which is pretty close to Crawford Market. Yummiest faloodas in the world! I so miss it!!

Dear Karan and Premjit, Thank you for a superb little gem on Crawford Market. I am relieved to learn that it is still called Crawford Market by the Bombayites. The Alphonso mangos brought back sweet memories of baskets of fragrant alphonsos that my mother used to buy from street vendors. Believe me,what goes by the name of mangos in the West aren't mangos at all to those who grew up eating Alphonsos! I was a bit disappointed to see how sanitised and western supermarket style have become the fruit and vegetable displays at Crawford Market. Also,why did you leave out the meat and fish sections?Maybe a little too much for squeamish first world stomachs,but rich in nostalgia for the rest of us. I also wish you had shown us more of the merchants' faces,like the subliminal gimpse of the fruitseller whose mango you were enjoying:-) Thank you for including Mangaldas Market. I used to buy my saris,dress pieces and curtain materials from here.What beauty! What opulence! At affordable prices! Our tailor used to stitch and blouses and curtains on my mother's Singer sewing machine in the servants' quarters at the back of our aprtment. Nobody was ever lonely.There was life both inside and outside the home. Today,even if I can buy a blouse piece,where is the darzi who will stitch into a perfectly fitting blouse for me? Farah Rustom. brahms.schubert21@yahoo.com p.s.: please include my email address so that I may here from other Bombay lovers -perhaps even long-lost friends.

I am pleased to see this video of Crawford Market. I am from Lahore, Pakistan. I have visited this market several times. My Grand Father had a bakery shop there. And i really miss the food stuff of Badshah especially its falooda and pav bhaji. The city of Bombay is my dream place to visit for its rich culture and its food

I love to watch the video, but I didn't catch some words said by the host, even if I have viewed the video "Crawford Market Mumbai". So, hope send me the host's broadcasting manuscript.
