A lot of things set Mumbai apart from the thousands of metropolitan cities all over the world! Whether it’s our supreme tolerance for civic negligence, unbearable heat and incessant rainfall, or our share of indigenous activities such as ‘adjusting’, these truly are just Mumbai things.
And we are all proud of them whether or not they make sense to others. Hell, not even people from other parts of our country understand why Mumbaikars say or do the things we do! It’s not for everyone, I mean who else can handle the daily rejection at the hands of volatile autowallahs, or being compressed into a local train like a win.rar file? No one can handle these just Mumbai things as well as we do.
It did not take me a lot of trouble to find these rare just Mumbai things on Twitter, shared by like-minded Mumbaikars, and equally baffled ‘outsiders’ who just cannot wrap their heads around why we are like this!
