Mumbai, fondly referred to as ?Bombay? by many, is not only the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra but is also the financial and commercial capital of the country. It lies on the Konkan coast, along the western border of India. It is probably the most populous city in India and serves as a home to the wealthiest Indians. Mumbai hosts the highest number of billionaires and millionaires amongst all the prime Indian cities. Being an economic hub, the city promises a plethora of opportunities in terms of employment, and thus it is a much-coveted destination for job-seekers from all over the nation. The Indian film industry, popularly known as ?Bollywood?, operates out of Mumbai. Mumbai also serves as a popular tourist destination as its outskirts provide all travelers with a magnificent combination of serene beaches, exotic hill stations on the Western Ghats. The tropical climate of Mumbai has a harmonious blend of warm, chilly and rainy days. The infamous Mumbai rain floods the city every year but doesn?t dampen the quintessential energetic spirit of the city. This Indian city nurtures the passion of dedicated learners and workers; it is often considered as the city that never sleeps.
