What do I write or say about this city which is not written or said yet? Well that's difficult, because Mumbai is such a place about which a lot is said. But I can surely say what is Mumbai for me.
Today when I left the city, I realized all that I dislike about it is actually what I think I will miss the most about it. The crowded local train, the traffic, the irregular constructions and the loud talks of the people. These are the things that Mumbai is imfamously famous for. From past few days whenever the old train came, the Best bus was late, the horns were loud on the road, I didn't get irritated but actually smiled. Smiled thinking that these things will be missed.
I think what Mumbai teaches us is how to adjust, hurry yet be good at your task. The life is fast, the day passes quickly. But in this busy life, we each and everyday learn a lot. The adjustment for that fourth seat in trains, the rejection of the auto rickshaw drivers, the argeement with the road side hawkers, the argument with the rash drivers, all these things make us learn.
Each day many people come to this city of dreams with a lot of expectations. And the city whole heartedly absorbs them.
My life, my dreams, my world, my people, my experiences, my city is my Mumbai.
There are countless number of things which I will miss. I don't know yet how this new city will be. But I will always be a proud Mumbaikar by heart.
