"Aye dil hai mushkil jeena yahaan
Zara hatke, zara bachke,
Ye hai Mumbai meri jaan!"
"Ee hai Mumbai nagariya tu dekh babua"
Mumbai. Previously known as Bombay. The Financial Capital of India. The City of Dreams.
I am one of the latest addition to the population of Mumbai amongst the millions of people who crowd the Mumbai streets in search of a mode to fulfill their dreams. Some want to be a part of the prestigious and demanding industry of film making, some want to pursue their literary fantasies, and some others in pursuit of their Financial Fairy.
I am neither of these. I was tugged here with the strings of matrimony. Not that I am complaining. Despite all its fame and defame, in my opinion, Mumbai is a highly interesting city. Lots to see and write about. Lots of people to observe.
So much so that I have finally decided to pen all my observations here. And hence the series, Chronicles of Mumbai: From the Eyes of a Mere Citizen.
I would like a post a disclaimer before I go ahead with posting more.
