MUMBAI the financial capital of india or the city of Bombay-
originally consisted of seven islands, namely Colaba, Mazagaon, Old Woman's Island, Wadala, Mahim, Parel, and Matunga-Sion later merged into one city,
now for the last couple of days truely resembles a bog ,

Its like going back into history as mumbai is now breaking up into hundreds of small islands thanks to the floods and to the shear density of people, migrants, zopadpattis and specially greedy politicians and administrative officials and Builders.

a few days of rain have successfully bought this economic juggernaut of a city that runs the cogs of india this never sleeping , allways moving city to a virtual standstill .

im passionate about my city but as things stand now i have slowly bcome frustrated and just feel like leaving this city as fighting the establishment is just plain impossible as corruption and unaccountability have pervaded our system called democracy of this city , state and nation and for simple basic ammenities people have to wait for a lifetime.

i am a third generation marathi speaking (non marathi) mumbaikar living in south mumbai and occurings of late really alarm me.
