This Instagram Account is an Accurate Reflection of Mumbai!

Because Bombay isn't ALL Bollywood.



Chirag Wakaskar, an independent photographer from Mumbai, started an Instagram account by the name—Everday Mumbai in July, 2014. Chirag, at first, thought of Instagram as a "platform for celebrities and models to share their selfies, and for other people to share food pictures." But the incredible reach of this application, especially amongst the youth, pushed him to explore it as a medium to share photos of the city of dreams and its people, the dreamers. Each post has a story to tell. Everyday Mumbai is a project inspired by other projects like Everyday Asia and Everyday Africa.

"​The emphasis is on exploring the social structure of the city through photography. I've also consciously tried to weave in certain topics to create awareness amongst the people such as pollution in the city, LGBT rights, female education and so on. I've shared work of around 500 photographers on the page ranging from amateurs to some of the finest photographers in the world. The project has gathered a lot of media attention and has been featured by CNN, Mashable, Guardian, Huffington Post, Homegrown etc and also been well received by the public, helping to create a culture of new storytellers in the city." -Chirag Wakaskar told Cosmopolitan, India.

Mumbai is SO much more than just  Bollywood or the BSE. And this Instagram account is a perfect reflection of Mumbai.
