Mumbai rains are here, and people just can’t stop joking about it
"If an Uber boat or hovercraft is ever launched in the world it’s not going to be in Venice"
If rains bring a smile on your face and you run to the balcony to take in that soothing aroma of the wet Earth with ‘Mitti di khushboo’ playing in the background, you are quite certainly not a Mumbaikar. And if you are peeping out of your office window with crinkled eyebrows, wondering if you could get back to home before it’s time brush again, well happy rains to you.
The BMC is cursed at every nook and crossroad of the city as the Mumbai dream becomes a wet dream. If an Uber boat or hovercraft is ever launched in the world it’s not going to be in Venice. Monsoon is precisely the reason why Ambani’s built a helipad at the top of their house. But could they have gone with a dock instead? The rains have just started and it has left Mumbaikars wondering about this and more. Check out some of the funniest reactions here.
You know #MumbaiRains have truly arrived when an Uber to your office starts at 400 bucks. My office is 1km from home FYI 😂— Avantika (@avantikatikmany) June 28, 2019

Depression - Look at these Uber prices!
Acceptance - *drowning* This is Fine.
As the water gently engulfs me on the roads of amchi mumbai, my final thoughts are ... water water everywhere but not a drop to drink... #MumbaiRains— Prashanth Rao Aroor (@aroorprashanth) June 28, 2019
