Munsoooooooooon in Mumbai

Rains are here unfortunately.....vat to do?!

Rains in the countryside may be sweet, but in Mumbai, all the smells (all of 'em yucky) are just magnified and we have to suffer worse roads (how can it be any worse, you ask?) than during the rest of the year. Not only to travel on but also walk on....slush slush slush and i ent talkin bout the one u can sip on.

Moderate "showers" for a couple of hours and you better start a couple of hours early if u wanna reach your destination on time.

A break from work/school/college for a day here & there due to heavy rains & floods in the city is understandable. But remember a few years back when noboby could step out the house for a whole week? Haha!! We got so bored we ended up playing boardgames all the time!

And not to forget the day it rained cats n dogs (highest ever), 26/7 was it, i'm not too good with dates, when everyone was stranded! Actually there were two such days.....the first time, i stuck it out in an overcrowded bus (full of pervs), standing on one toe for hours on end as the bus crawled along. The other time i took a train halfway to my destination and walked the rest of the way in waist deep water. But some ppl had to wade in chest deep water & stuff, and all the leetle kids must have been so frightened ~but think of the children! sniff sniff~. Well i'll bet everyone came across atleast one dead rat & its feces & of course the good citizens' feces+urine+paan spits....i even saw a dead dog floating by.

I can't think of even one nice thing to say about the rains in Mumbai, forget the cliched cuppa & hot pakodas. You wanna go out somewhere, and the rains will literally rain on your parade. It's always happenin to me! So i've decided this season round that i'm not gonna let it affect me. A lil rain aint gonna ruin my fudge u!!
