Talking about life in my city, let me give you a small introduction about this ‘City of Dreams’, ‘A City that never sleeps’ - Mumbai.
The western state of India, Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra. Mumbai people are fondly called as ‘Mumbaikars’. Thousands of people come here in search of better work and life. Hence, is famous as the ‘City of Dreams’. Mumbai attracts one and all. It is densely populated. This city has a fast-paced life. Everybody is in a hurry to go from one place to another.
Mumbai locals are the lifeline of Mumbai city. Just like every other college student, I also commute to & from my college every day by the local. The 'local' is the most popular and quickest way of commuting in Mumbai. It takes me around 1.5 hours to reach college. I learned the value of each second by traveling through local. For example, if I miss the 6.24am train I have to wait for 6.43, which may get me late for 8 am the lecture. The best part was that I was just standing to get into the train and when the train stopped in front of me after 30 seconds I was in the train, the crowd pushed everyone to get into the train, it was like a natural moment. It teaches you to be punctual certainly in your life. The mostastonishing part is that in the month of June, July Mumbai faces heavy rains and in those months local trains usually run late due to which everyone faces trouble. During the rains, trains run late and if in some of the routs there is some major problem, then it feels like a major full stop to the life of travelers traveling through trains.
