Brief of the East Indian Community –
East Indians are the original residents of BOMBAY (Mumbai). These Original inhabitants used to call the Island of Bombay in their dialect as Mobai and not Mumbai. The area constituting the villages of the East Indian Community are the former seven islands of Bombay given to the British as a dowry by the Portuguese. It included the former island of Salsette (ruled by the Portuguese, till the Marathas defeated them and gifted this to the British), Thana, Bassein (Vasai), Chaul and parts of Raigad.
East Indians were originally Marathi speaking local Fisherman and Farmers. The community adopted the name East Indian on the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria, to distinguish themselves as North Konkan Catholics and British subjects, as opposed to immigrants such as Goan Catholics who were Portuguese subjects.
