Andheri is the largest suburb of Mumbai. It is home to a railway station on the Mumbai Suburban Railway, Western line. It is the fifth suburb among the Western suburbs. Like many other suburbs and areas of Mumbai, Andheri too is divided into an East and a West section, separated by the railway line.


Before 1945, Andheri was administered by a Collector in charge of the “Suburban District”. With the creation of Greater Bombay in 1945, the administration was merged with the rest of Bombay city.

One of the oldest residential areas in Andheri is Dhake Colony on Versova Road, Andheri West. The five buildings in the area were built around 1950, and they served as a landmark until recently. The area is now known as D.N. Nagar.

Andheri has a popular Ganesha temple, Shree Vanchasiddhi Vinayak Ganesh Mandir, which was created in 1926.

    Please do add few personalities who did wonders in the suburbans like Late Shri Chatrabhuj Narsee……

    [5.12.1924 – 1.7.1998]
    On the death anniversary of a KARAMYOGI SAINT who was not a preacher, but kindled the light of true values of service to the man-kind in many hearts by living a life which will ever remain a LIGHT HOUSE to guide many on the path of service to the society. Late Shri Chatrabhujbhai believed that Education and Health needed to be considered the items of top most priority to solve numerous problems faced by our country and human race as a whole.

    His self-less devotion and untiring efforts gave a model educational institute like JAMNABAI NARSEE SCHOOL to the Juhu Vile Parle area. He remained President of the Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal for over 25 years and devoted whole heartedly to create the world class institutes under the Mandal’s umbrella. His deep commitment and efforts gave the Society the best management institute like NARSEE MONJEE INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES(now a deemed university).

    “Never compromise on quality” because “Institution is more important than an individual”, he always reiterated. A management guru in Vedantic mould he spiced his interaction with numerous anecdotes often seasoned with satire.

    Shri Chatrabhujbhai’s philosophy of a sound mind in a sound body was the reason behind his devotion to the cause of education and health care. He believed that all basic facilities should be available in Vile Parle and therefore under his President-ship the Nanavati hospital grew into a hospital of repute with all modern state-of-the-art multidisciplinary facilities.

    Always dressed in simple white clothes, he had a simple, shining, straightforward mind and a TOTAL ABSENCE OF HYPOCRISY. ABSOLUTELY TRUTHFUL AND SIMPLE, he always remained unaffected in expressing his opinion, least influenced by the presence or absence of any person or situation. He dreamt of a society with equality of human being free from any preferences and ensured that even his own family members follow the rules.

    In his personal life, he had highest respect, regards and love for his parents. He had least interest in his personal fame and avoided his name to be highlighted for anything. He was a saintly personality with an ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE for all who helped him in his endeavour to serve the mankind. He would never forget to convey his thanks for any help given to him; and that also he preferred to personally convey to the helping individual. He attached highest importance to the punctuality, which he considered the never changing law of the Universe.

    Chapter 12 – Verse 18 & Verse 19 of Shri Bhagavad Gita describes Shri Chatrabhujbhai’s complete personality: –

    “One who is equal to friends and enemies, who is equipoised in honour and dishonour, heat and cold, happiness and distress, fame and infamy, who is always free from contaminating association, always silent and satisfied with anything, who doesn’t care for any residence, who is fixed in knowledge and who is engaged in service to mankind” – such a person was Shri Chatrabhuj Narsee.

  4. Eloy Guiliani Says:

    Termite inspection is the term most commonly used for a general determination of the presence of wood-destroying insects and organisms. Depending on local and state codes, this inspection may include all known organisms or may include only the most common culprits: termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and wood-boring beetles. –
