MMumbai, formerly Bombay, is a verylarge city on the west coast of India.  Along with the neighboring cities of Navi Mumbai and Thane, it forms the world's 4th largest urban agglomeration, with more than 20 million people.  Mumbai lies on the west coast of India and has a deep natural harbor.  The seven islands that came to constitute Bombay were home to communities of fishing colonies.  For centuries, the islands came under the control of successive kingdoms and indigenous empires before being ceded to Portuguese settlers in 1535 and subsequently leased to the British East India Company in 1668.  During the mid-18th century, Bombay emerged as a significant trading town.  By 1782 large projects were instituted to combine the original 7 islands.  Economic and educational development characterized the city during the 19th century.  It became a strong base for the Indian independence movement during the early 20th century.  It was renamed Mumbai in 1996.  Mumbai is the commercial and entertainment centre of India, generating 5% of India's GDP, and accounting for 25% of industrial output, 40% of maritime trade, and 70% of capital transactions to India's economy.  Mumbai is home to important financial institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India, the Bombay Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange of India and the corporate headquarters of numerous Indian companies and multinational corporations.  The city also houses Bollywood.
