In 2014, when Karishma Mehta started Humans of Bombay as a simple Facebook page, the intention was simple: to tell stories, to connect strangers with the emotion of, ‘You’re not alone.’ She hoped to reach out a hand to those who believed that no one would understand their pain, to envelop those in a warm hug who wanted to share their happiness, to walk shoulder to shoulder with those rebels with a cause, and to just… listen. To your story.
But what began as a simple effort to lend a voice to the voiceless, became much more. What began as strangers coming together, is now a community of over 3.2 million people. What began as 1 story, is now 6000 stories and counting. And it made me realise that this is what we all are– a collection of stories just waiting to be told. No matter where we come from, or who we are, or where we’re going; stories are all we hear, and stories will be the only legacy we leave behind.
The last 8 years have catapulted us into stories beyond our imagination. And as we have grown, we’ve crossed borders, oceans, and hundreds of miles. Today, Humans of Bombay catalogues the beat of humanity, one story at a time. It is India’s largest and only storytelling platform that showcases unique, inspirational and relatable stories of individuals from all walks of life. So let us walk you through them, one story at a time…
