Since 2006, the UDRI has been publishing the ‘Mumbai Reader’, a collection of articles on Mumbai. The Reader undertakes a representation of the city that enables innumerable readings through a simultaneous and non-linear compilation of multiple voices. The contents of the reader include some of the most recent perspectives on culture, economy, geography and history of the city. Mumbai Reader has attempted to closely archive changes as well as provide a contemporary understanding of the city in order to be able to reflect both on the present and future of the city.
