Mumbai is not just a city but it’s a feeling and many people from different parts of the country visit the city to enjoy this feeling called Mumbai! While we know that India’s financial capital is one of the coolest cities to live, there are also a few things which one finds surprising or different from other states. Just like Siraj from Baarish Aur Chowmein, you will relate to these things if you have moved to the city recently…
Finding a quiet place for yourself
No matter how many times you might have heard this but finding a silent place in this city is just like finding a needle in a haystack!
Local trains: Boon or a bane?
The most reliable source of transport in this city are trains which are also called the ‘Lifeline of Mumbai’. It isn’t as easy as it looks because you need great skills to board a train in the crucial hours. Hats off to those who commute daily by trains.
‘Jugaad’ is the magic word!
You share your problem with any Mumbaikar and they will get you a quick-fix solution within no time. The best part of the city is, you’ll always find a person who can do a jugaad for you!
Rains: Love it or hate it, you can’t escape it!
While some people enjoy monsoons, most of them when they move to Mumbai change their mind as the city comes to a standstill! On the flip side, what fun it is to have garam pakoras & cutting chai!
Every aspiring actor has a dream to come to Mumbai, and be a part of Bollywood. But even if you don’t make it, you’ll get plenty chances to spot the stars eating at your favourite restaurant or working out at an upscale gym.
Director Tigmanshu Dhulia has come up with the most common yet a unique love story which takes place in the city of dreams, have a look:
Vada Pav And Chai
The way locals are a lifeline for Mumbaikars, the staple food is the combination of vada pav and a cup of chai to satisfy their hunger. The combination is easily available at every nook and corner of the city. If you haven’t had the combo after moving to the city, you haven’t done anything!
Just like time, Mumbai doesn’t stop for anyone! You have to pick the pace & keep moving with it.
