The East Indian community is one of the earliest to have inhabited Bombay (Mumbai), Salsette and Thana (Thane). Their ancestry can be traced from the first century CE onward according to their caste designations from the 11th and 12th century CE. The original East Indian villages stretched from Dahanu in the north to Chaul in the south of the north Konkan region, including those in the Bombay Metropolis. Members of this community were converted to Christianity either by St. Bartholomew or the missionaries who came in from the Persian Gulf between the first to the fourth century CE. This module attempts to document this dwindling community's past, present and plausible future.
