13 Photos That Prove No One Should Live In Mumbai. EVER.

I’ve been living in Mumbai for 7 years. And it’s not been an easy 7 years. It’s mostly been me getting lost in local trains and struggling to get myself heard in crowds. It’s also been me finding myself, falling in love with the life around me, and discovering that maybe, just maybe, this city is more than too much pollution and too many people. LOL, that’s until I came across these photos and learnt otherwise.


In the interest of full disclosure, I sometimes cannot see properly cause my glasses get all dirty and blurred up. That may or may not have happened while I was writing this piece.

It’s not like Mumbai, for all its crowds, dirt and pollution, has moments of true beauty or anything.

All those lights, that architecture, the people HURT YOUR EYES, I SWEAR.

The people here HATE animals. Seriously, I heard that people actually take time out to plan a war against random animals.

And it’s not like there’s actual beauty, even when the city is at its most chaotic

DO THE PEOPLE HERE EVEN KNOW WHAT FUN IS? DO THEY?!!!

SOMEONE PLEASE TELL THESE MUMBAIKARS TO LOOK UP THE DEFINITION OF FUN IN THE DICTIONARY OR SOMETHING!!!

The people here are CONSTANTLY fighting with each other. Argh.

I mean, WITH ALL THE CROWDS, HOW DO YOU EVEN FIND THE SPACE TO RELAX? Someone please give these Mumbaikars a lesson in adjusting for each other.

Honestly, the people here are SO sad.

Love for each other = 0. Clearly.

No place for the kids to play or anything. Argh, what a fucking abomination!

Is this supposed to be food? *tries to stop mouth from watering enough to insult Mumbai*

K dudes, I can’t pretend to hate this city anymore. Not with this beautiful waffle, at least.

EVERYONE, CAN WE JUST ACCEPT THAT MUMBAI IS ACTUALLY A KINDA AMAZING CITY TO LIVE IN? THNX.
