Mulund

 Mulund East-West BridgeMulund is a prosperous suburb located in the northeast of Mumbai popularly nick-named “Prince Of The Suburbs”. It is accessible by rail on the Central Railway line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway It is nestled alongside the foothills of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park with easy access to the Eastern Express Highway and Navi Mumbai through the Mulund-Airoli bridge.

History

Till the mid 50’s to late 80s, this suburb was an idyllic sleepy hamlet. It was home to a large number of educated middle class residents. As a typical microcosm of mumbai, it had a cosmopolitan mix of Hindis, Gujaratis, Marathis, Tamilians, Malayalis, Kannadigas, Sindhis and Punjabis who lived in harmony with each other. Testimony to this fact is the presence of various religious structures located close to each other with no communal or religious tension.

Evidence of this is the various prominent religious structures like The Jain Temple in Zaver Road, The Bhakta Sangham Temple in P.K.Road. St.Pius Church on Madan Mohan Malviya Road, Balrajeshwar Temple on L.B.S.Road, Sarvodaya Parshwanath Temple in Sarvodaya Nagar and the Hanuman Temple in Mulund East.

Mulund was home to several prominent manufacturing establishments. Notable among them are the pharmaceutical companies – Hoechst, Wellcome (Glaxo), Merind and Johnson & Johnson. Engineering companies like Richardson Cruddas, ACC, Agfa & Gabriel are also around. As production shifts out of Mumbai, many of these establishments are making way for modern shopping malls and luxurious apartment complexes altering the landscape and skyline. Johnson and Johnson however continues to remain a landmark in Mulund.

Towards the late 90s this suburb acquired a new hue with winds of globalisation slowly reaching the people here. Old buildings and structures gave way to big bright new malls and cineplexes. This change is most apparent along the L.B.S.Road which today is lined with two major shopping malls Nirmal Lifestyle (one of India’s largest malls)and R-Mall has attractions like Shopper’s Stop, Shoprite (South African Hypermarket), Big Bazaar, Pantaloons, Lifestyle, eateries like McDonalds, Sachins, Pizza Hut, Subway, Cafe Coffee Day, Mocha, the Grill among others. Skyscrapers have lined the landscape replacing old factories. Old tailors and garment cut piece stores have given way to fashion boutiques.

Mulund has also seen breakthrough in the area of web presence with Mulund’s own website’s like http://www.mulundonline.com, http://www.mulundmall.com, etc.

Though Mulund today has become much more crowded than what it used to be, it is still considered to one of the safest places in bombay, this can be especially said for Mulund East.

    SMPR school is the worst school I have ever seen I am English teacher of that school. I humiliate students of that school as much as possible coz I enjoy humiliating students.

  2. padmini Says:

    Dear Maushmi,
    I really pity the students of that school, for having you as their teacher. Being a teacher, instead of encouraging the students and helping them to come ahead in life, although the school doesn’t have a standard, how dare you humiliate the students. I feel you must be psychic…mad….. Get yourself treated properly before you teach them anything further.

  6. Dominic Says:

    Your favourite malls : DMART
    I would like to warn all Mulund and Bhandupites that DMART is only a vegetarian Mall. They expect that the world is vegetarians only which is why there is no indication that it is vegetarian only.
    Only after visiting a number of times I realized this.

    SO all be FOREWARNED.

    Regards
