Prakash Pathe Marg (Opp. Badhwar park)





Like all Indian cities, Mumbai too is dotted with villages that it gobbled up or ones that sprung up to cater to the needs of the city. Like Phule Nagar, a Fisherfolks Colony opposite Badhwar Park. It was also one of the landing spots for the terrorists who came in by boat from Pakistan in November 2008.

Phule Nagar is an extremely congested version of villages hugging the Kokan Coast, with very little drinking water, lack of toilets, the Bombil being dried, and the man repairing the boat is actually sitting on the footpath leading towards Cuffe Parade. This must also be the only fishing village where the youngsters are forced to play volleyball away from the seashore. Because Phule Nagar is a 'beachless' fishing village.
