Mumbai is known as the city that never sleeps. Once you lived in Mumbai and made it your home, no other place is good enough for you.
I looovvvveee living in Mumbai no matter what. I was born and brought up in Mumbai and that is why the city runs in my blood.
When I read about TATA Motors Zonal war competition about your favourite city, the first thing that popped up in my head was Mumbai.
Mumbai, hands down, is the best city in the world. Yeah, we don’t have those super fantastic clean roads or perfect transport like that in other cities in the world, but we have got something so special that you won’t find anywhere else.
Mumbai helps you to learn about yourself. It helps you to discover yourself. Every day in Mumbai is like an adventure. Many have written stories on Mumbai. Many have made movies! Certainly there is something about this city that drive us to praise its beauty.
Let’s look at Mumbai from three different angles: – Drive, Design and Connect.
Mumbai is a city that never sleeps. Being the Financial capital it is the richest city of India with the Highest GDP.
Mumbai is among the world’s top 10 centres of commerce if we talk about the financial Flow. Mumbai houses important financial institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India, the Bombay Stock Exchange, Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and the corporate headquarters of many Indian companies. Owing to the immense business opportunities available in Mumbai and the relatively high standard of living, it has attracted migrants from all over India and South Asia, making the city a potpourri of various communities and cultures.
Within Mumbai is located Bollywood, the epicentre of the country’s Hindi film and television industry, producing the world’s highest number of films annually.
Moreover almost all Big and Small banks are headquartered here. When we talk about money and Finance, Business is the point which comes to our mind, So Mumbai is also a big business hub.
Sea ports give a major boost to the city trade and money. So more and less every factor stated above is revolving around money, which are enough to establish Mumbai as a financial capital.
There are a number of career opportunities in this city. Whether you are a freshly graduated youth or an uneducated adult looking for some way to earn your daily bread, you will surely find a way to earn in Mumbai.
Mumbai is like “The New York of India.”
Previously known as Bombay, Mumbai has a wonderful number of historic monuments. With the wonderful and beautiful ancient buildings in Churchgate to the national park, Mumbai has a beautiful design.
Located on the west coast of India, it is having a great natural harbour. Mumbai is also one of the rare cities to accommodate a National Park within its municipal limits.
Most of Mumbai’s sculptures are from the colonial area. There are various famous tourist attractions in Mumbai. We have the Gateway of India (built in 1924), Taj Hotel (which still stands strong after all the attacks), the Elephanta Caves, etc. There are a various religious places built during the British times. Besides this we also have various museums, amusement parks, caves and forts. The list is long. If I go on and on this post will never end because Mumbai offers such a wide variety of design in its culture.
The street food like paani puri and vada pav are some of the classic mouth watering most wanted things in Mumbai. Besides we have the typical Maharashtrian missal pav and pav bhaji and various other classic and traditional dishes too.
The Mumbai local trains are always there to connect the city. The Mumbai’s Dabbawalla’s are our pride. Besides the local trains, Mumbai has buses, rickshaws, metro, mono rails, taxi’s, ferry too.
The roadways are always full with people and the trains crowded. In the Mumbai local you meet a many new people and make friends.
Besides the people in Mumbai are very helpful. They are always there for you in times of trouble. The street food and the fast food joints are another place which helps connect people.
When the 3 different terrorist attacks and the floods took place in Mumbai, people were there reaching out to each other for help. The Mumbai police are always there 24/7 for the safety of the citizens.
The celebration of festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali, Dahi Handi celebrations, etc. is another place were people connect with each other.
Besides this, there are various events and concerts held at Mumbai. The late night life of the city is another great example of how the city is connected.
For most of the city youngsters a day starts at around 9pm.
I love the spirit and the pace of Mumbai. Mumbai is a place where you learn so many things. But most of all in Mumbai you learn to live life to the fullest.
I would like to end this with Mohammed Rafi’s song:
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Jeena Yahan,
Zara Hat Ke, Zara Bach Ke,
Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan
