Spaces evoke narratives much with the same sense of authenticity as narratives make notions of the spaces. They seamlessly move between the lived-in experiences, secondary memories and represented narratives. Sometimes spaces are marked by the narratives that are imposed on them and sometimes the narratives are remembered because of the locations where they have been anchored – Amitabh Bachchan’s Vijay running through the Colaba Causeway or Bunty and Babli arriving at VT station or Salim Langda striding through Bhendi Bazar or Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro under Byculla bridge.

In this section we mapped certain key spaces / neighbourhood - sometimes to scale, sometimes by the logic of cinematic memories, sometimes by highlighting the marks of erasures and exclusions, and yet other times through the instances of the spaces masquerading as someplace else.
