10.52 a.m, September 11, 2012 –Mumbai
Getting up from bed on a rainy cloudy day in Mumbai is one of the worst things in life. It takes me a lot of will power to come to terms with the fact that I have a days work at office to attend to. As I walked into the office at 9.40 a.m., the office was nearly deserted unlike other days. The obvious reason being waterlogging in Mumbai due to rains. The impact a few hours of rain can have on the city of Mumbai and the life of people is worth thinking. Areas in the city flood, trains get delayed, traffic starts moving at snails pace. The fast life in Mumbai indeed takes a back seat!
Despite all this, the irony of the fact is that Mumbaikars love rains. The traffic, the floods – nothing deters their love for rain. Probably this is true love!
