Reel life and real life are enmeshed beyond distinction here, the latter may bite an average Mumbai inhabitant occasionally, though. Especially when it rains and the roads are clogged with water, bringing to fore the shortcomings of the drainage system underneath. Mumbai is overcrowded, resembling a balloon about to burst; the island nature of the city limits further expansion, thankfully.

Originally called by the British colonizers as "Bombay", much of Mumbai's architecture is reminiscent of Victorian age. Though the financial and commercial hub of India - one of the fastest growing economies in the world, Mumbai trails far behind many other cities when it comes to the question of proper roads and housing facilities. Widening income gap between different sections of people, increasing crime rates among women and unholy gangster-terrorist nexuses do not augur well with a city of incomparable natural gifts and centuries long heritage.
