मिलता है यहाँ सब कुछ इक मिलता नहीं दिल. इंसान का नहीं यहाँ नामो निशान. ज़रा हटके ज़रा बचके, ये है बॉम्बे मेरी जान।
“You get everything here but a heart, you cannot find humanness here. Be careful, be aware this is Mumbai”.
This song from an old Bollywood Mumbai is exactly what Mumbai is. Mumbai a city of many different experiences, millions of people, many moods, and different flavors. A city where rich and poor live side by side, where time and man stop for no one. A city where everyone is jostling for a space to sit, breathe and eat. A city that embraces everyone that reaches it shores and then pushes them to extremes. A city of many dreams and as many heartbreaks. A city that has become my identity, a city I call my own. Because whatever you say, how much ever you moan, when you are in Mumbai you are truly at home.
