There was a time when I used to travel by the western line every day. Malad to Charni Road and back because my college was in South Bombay. The pushing, the shouting, the shoving, the pulling - I've been there, done that. Even though all of that happened a long time ago, the memory still remains fresh in my mind today. It's embarrassing to admit that all those videos on Youtube where people are pushing each other to get into the train are actually true. In fact, millions of people use these trains daily in Mumbai. It's their lifelines and one of the fastest ways to get around the city on a budget. I don't know about your experience, but I can tell you my thoughts when I travelled in a Mumbai local that I'm sure anyone would agree with.
And then has the nerve to chuck the waste out the window. SHAME ON YOU GUYS!
Well, hello there! Welcome to the Mumbai locals - where the impossible becomes possible!
My muscles tense up whenever the next stop is Dadar station!
And a razor too. Sorry, not sorry.
On second thought, never mind.
I was confused at first, but then I got to know she wanted my seat. Heck, that!
Take your big peach somewhere else, woman!
Just a moment, mentioning that on my resume.
Honestly, why does it even exist?
If you think women are fragile, I'd like you to board the 5:45-6 pm Andheri local in the evening. We'll talk after *Wink*
- Scratching, biting, pushing, name calling, hair-pulling - yeh hai asli entertainment!
- Where did that middlefinger emoji go now, hmm?
- There are indeed things that money can't buy - like my PEACE of mind. Thank you.
- Sachh bolo? Major turnoff hai yaar!
- Mumbai Local: Wait... Hold my beer - I got this!
