Mulund is a bustling suburb of Greater Mumbai city, India, located in the northeast part of the megapolis, very close to the district of Thane. Till the mid to late 80's, 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 Gujaratis, Maharashtrians, Tamil speakers, Malayalis, Kannadigas, Sindhis and Punjabis who lived in perfect harmony with each other. Testimony to this fact is the presence of various religious structures located close to each other with absolutely no communal or religious tension in the air. Prominent religious structures in Mulund are 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.
Towards the late 90's 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 attractions like Shoppers Stop Superstore, Nirmal Lifestyles Mall, Sachins, R-Mall and Big Bazaar. Skyscrapers have lined the landscape replacing old factories. Old tailors and garment cut piece stores have given way to readymade fashion boutiques.
The mulund resident has slowly responded to the onset of the 'global village'.
