Premier Padmini taxis, first introduced to the streets of Mumbai in the 1960s, have now all but disappeared following the introduction of laws to reduce pollution in the city. Locally known as 'Kaali-Peeli', there were once more than 60,000 of these iconic black and yellow cabs struggling through the chaos of Mumbai's streets. Over a four year period Dougie Wallace documented these elaborate Bollywood disco bars on wheels. The crowded streets of Mumbai and the assortment of passengers provide a dynamic and intense backdrop, as do the cabs themselves. Many are pimped with large speakers in the boot that blast out Bollywood hits, or are colourfully decorated inside with posters of Bollywood actresses, upholstered in loud hypnotic patterns, or feature Hindu gods and goddess on the dashboard.

Asha seeks to steal government antipoverty funds to turn herself into a 'first-class person,' while her daughter Manju intends to become the slum's first female graduate. But their schemes are fragile; global recession threatens the garbage trade, and another slum dweller is about to make an accusation that will destroy herself and shatter the neighborhood.

From her uncompromising book, David Hare has fashioned a tumultuous play on an epic scale.

A Brit Abroad - When cultures collide they provide opportunities for misunderstanding, embarrassment and humour. This book is a collection of just such stories. Andrew Scowcroft writes with genuine humour, and a real love of the people and culture of India. His anecdotes take you behind the apparent chaos and mayhem that the first-time visitor often experiences in the vast, bustling city that is Mumbai. He views the disturbing poverty and stunning wealth of India with the eyes of a Westerner, but at the same time has been careful not to impose his values on their way of life. He sometimes struggles with this conflict, and in so doing we get a fresh perspective on this fascinating, vibrant and ancient culture. This book is a celebration of the people of Mumbai, their fortitude, and their sheer joy of life. If you like Bill Bryson, we think you'll like this!
