About the Bombay Pirate

The Name “Bombay Pirate”

What does the name mean?

Pirate is largely a word that reflects how I felt trapped and wanted to do something different from the beaten path. I wanted to break out, do one thing that was different from what others were doing. That is when this blog and my writing journey started. Hence the emotive name “Pirate”

Bombay is where I grew up. I largely refer to it as Mumbai (especially in Marathi) but to copy a line from Chennai-Madras “Mumbai is a name, Bombay is an emotion.

Hence Bombay Pirate!
