Pyaavs: Drinking Water Fountains of Mumbai

Pyaav juxtaposed in the stark reality of Mumbai metropolis

This module is a holistic study of the traditional drinking water fountains of Mumbai, known as pyaavs. Right from their inception in the socio-cultural landscape of colonial Bombay to the recent conservation movement to restore pyaavs, the module revisits them through audio-visuals, interviews, literature and photo essays. It is a study of a unique architectural heritage that expresses the flavour of everyday life in Mumbai, both past and present.
