The Local trains are the lifeline of Mumbai. But close to 10 people die everyday in train accidents.

On an average a Mumbaikar spends 4hours to... 6hours
traveling to work everyday. And if you have to travel in local during peak hours, hell might feel better.

Horrible over crowded local trains with regular accident deaths happening daily.

Cost of living is very high and for those living on rent, it is too high. And it is a vicious cycle. Cost of house that many can't afford and you have no choice but to pay high rents.

Over hyped city due to celebrities, businessmen and all...
The so called spirit of mumbai i feel is a very rosy glossy picture created by the media & authorities to cover up for the everyday hardships faced by the common man.

life in Mumbai is good, if you have constant source of income and engagement.

Life maybe easy for the corporate class, but ask the working class and you’ll know the ‘real’ Mumbai.

if you think of taking your own car, traffic will blow you, and the horns will kill you! And two things will burn, you and your petrol.
Is there much Bollywood dancing activity in Mumbai? Have you seen any?

Can you invite Elon Musk over to fix the cris-cross of
insufficient public transport? He knows a bit about tubes n stuff.

Spending 4 hours or more commuting...hmm...
can folk not just move to a smaller town or something??

A serious question: during covid, did more folk work from home?

Good blog, you put a lot of work into it. wine
My impression of the whole of India is mass poverty and over populated. Plus monsoons and diseases. the bulk of what anyone ever sees of different countries is either the worst or the best.
When I was a kid, dad talked to the consulate of Mexico. He had the notion to sell the farm,retire and we move to Mexico. The consulate said dad was correct in thinking his money would allow us to live like royalty in Mexico. We could have a huge home, servants and all the comforts. But, we would be scared to walk the streets as rich Norte Americanos. We would not trust our servants who would take whatever they thought their right. Yes, we could have a lovely house..surrounded with a fence to protect us from kidknapping or robbery. Dad decided maybe not.
It is easy to look at the conversion value of money and think wow. But, then, what is the costs of things. Like California. One can make $20,30 or more for wages. But, gas is $6 or more. Apartments are $3000 for a dump and a house costs half a million or more. It is all relative.
Move with a wad of cash to India and enjoy. Live there and work and hope to survive.
"India. With a GDP of $2171 per Capita, India comes towards the bottom of our list of poorest countries. A mind-boggling one-fifth of the country's 1.3 billion people live below the national poverty line. For comparison, that's roughly 320 million people or the entire population of the US."

From Google.

I have some friends from India and they're very hard working people but opportunities in that country, much like the third world including the Philippines is limited to the rich people who has the ability to bribe those in power to climb ip the economic ladder.

India is one of the bottof the list of the poorest countries according to Wiki and Google.

you are welcom... misscheers
I know it's not a q and a, and you have to answer to noone.

My point of asking if people worked from home as folk did here,
was to figure out if some of the commuting could be replaced by home-work.
I think the ideal is 3 days HOME OFFICE AND 2 DAYS AT WORK.
This comment was in response to Orrz my friend.
yes lot of people are doing
but.... not... all works can
be done from home.. for
eg.. manual
