Mumbai, Meri Jaan?

Having a lousy time in Mumbai. Sigh. I hope to survive this insanity long enough to return home safe and sound. I can’t believe I am in the heart of Mumbai and can’t make an international call. I can’t believe I’m in the heart of Mumbai and can’t access a stable internet connection. I can’t believe I’m in the heart of Mumbai and am cut off from the world with no phone, no money, no internet, no nothing. I can’t believe I ate Ruffles Lays for lunch because I didn’t have money to buy myself a decent meal. I can’t belive I traveled in the handicapped compartment of a local train because I didn’t know it was reserved for the handicapped. I can’t believe I went around the whole city in sweltering heat, and didn’t feel tired because I was beyond fatigue.

I can’t believe I’m in Mumbai. I can’t believe I hate this place so much, and yet, there’s something about this city that makes me want to come back, again and again. I can’t believe I love this place.

I can’t believe I love Mumbai.

  1. Bombay is one the BEST cities in India and I love it too… I would any day prefer eating Ruffles Lays in Mumbai to eating a full lunch in Bangalore πŸ™‚

  2. I love Mumbai too and have been loving her for over a decade now. Still not bored of her. Though would never want to stay with her, just visit her and come back to good old B’lore.

    Btw, come back.

  3. Hey, even the pav-bhajji guy has a manual credit card swipe facility in Mumbai. Lost your wallet?

    I liked Vimuu’s comment. Ha Ha πŸ™‚

    Take care and keep blogging!!

  5. If it weren’t for those last two lines in your post, I’d have hated you and called you a traitor! πŸ˜›

    LOL @ Vimmuuu’s comment.

  6. Just tried calling you…the phone’s switched off! So yu ain’t lying! πŸ˜€

  9. Sounds like a story to be told on a rainy day over hot samosas…
    Like a dyslexic version of Alice in wonderland… Hmmm. I hope you enjoy every painful minute!

  10. I have never been to Mumbai and I am the only one in my family who holds the record. And did you sleepwalk to the place? Why don’t you have any money? Robbed?

  12. The first part kinda sounds depressing to me! Can’t make an international call or even have a stable connection? Mumbai seems like Hell on Heaven or vice versa, whichever way you want it! πŸ™‚
