When we think of Mumbai… chronologically three things pops out in our mind. The Hindi Film Industry a.k.a. Bollywood followed by Bombay Stock Exchange and lastly the suppurating sore of terrorism and mafia war. Well… the picture is clear. Most of you are aware of the nitty-gritty of Mumbai’s mass spectrum. In spite of such sporadic-drama, life in Mumbai runs wild chords. If you were in the city, surely you have the idea but one who is still roving Mumbai over the gossip… let’s give them a swarm-o-graphic picture.
Life in Mumbai for some is a dream and for some it turns to dust but for both the city offers huge traffic. The life of a common man starts here outside a shared “Sandas”, moves on an overcrowded local train that cuts and runs to an overloaded schedule and winds up in an overanxious office state. And then comes the monsoon… life in Mumbai goes miserable. Waterlogged road delaying the traffic, yet the drenching life of a common man goes on… the stock market still bells at 9.30 and knells at 3.30, blockbusters still score crores and hooliganism finds a shelter under the dark clouds. Let’s have a look at the life line of the common people of Mumbai. Be it in a sarcastic way… but as a traveller if you are not experiencing the LIFE LINE of Mumbai then the city is not a part of your travel diary.Mumbai Local Train – The Life Line of Common People
