Abstract:

"This short, elegantly written book questions the myth that Mumbai is a paradise for women in public. The authors show that women of different class and cultrural backgrounds in Mumbai operate under serious social, political and infrastructural constraints, and that the right to loiter is no more and no less than the right to everyday life in the global city. This book will appeal to social scientists, ubranists, gender scholars and, more generally, to all those who want to take fun more seriously." --
