Change again!!

Last 3 months were like a roller coaster ride for Mumbai. Rains were so bad on some days that we kept on getting messages from BMC (Bombay Municipal Corporation) Commissioner that heavy to very heavy rainfall is expected in next 48 hours and all the news channels kept on flashing "Milan subway dooba" & "Khar subway main paani bhara". These incessant rains made Milan and Khar subway household names along with Kurla, Kaleena and Sakinaka!

Quite predictably though, every time after the BMC Commissioner's message, rains stopped and a dry patch followed.

During one such dry patch, I read this on,"Monsoon not likely to revive in next 8-10 days". Predictably again, it rained non-stop for next 5 days and again Milan and Khar subway managed to come into limelight on TV although the lion's share of the limelight was taken by Rakhi Sawant-Mika kisses. On India TV, it was (Lion's +Tiger's + Elephant's) share.

Then there was a sudden Shiv Sena band for one day. The effect of the band was severe. Cruel guys announced band in such a short span that this poor soul had to spent the entire day on 2 cups of tea as all the hotels and restaurants were affected.

Two days later, bomb blasts took place in 7 local trains. I was fortunate enough not to be on one of those trains as I was supposed to take one of the same trains and on the same route. Many innocent souls lost their lives that day.

Then one fine day, sea water in Mahim creek turned sweet and as this was the effect of one mazaar of one of the Muslim saint near to that place, Hindu gods didn't lag far behind. They started drinking milk! Look, even Gods have healthy competition going between them! ( For more sexclusiveand exclusives on Rakhi Sawant's day to day life, pls watch Rajat Sharma's India TV..Non Stop)

Amidst all this, I switched my job..Yes,again! And with this I left my beloved Mumbai. Am no more a Mumbaikar. Am a Puneite now!

To be continued...

Moonie: look, I kept my promise!
