It all started with the weekend getting bored in a mega-city Mumbai. What do you think in a big city people do in weekends? watch a movie, do lots of shopping, whatever the rush.. eat in a restaurant. Being born and bought up in a village and small towns its freakishly fast paced living to adjust with. I was feeling amazed at the people's run-around when stayed at my uncle's home for sometime (5-6 months in 2009) in Bengaluru. But as soon as I landed in deputed city, Mumbai (May 2010) for the job, 6 months of Bengaluru experience of a city life felt nothing !!!

Oh God.. !! help me to get adjust with 'the city that never sleeps' !!! Yeah its true, even at night after 12 am you can see people traveling around for work or home or 'just like that' ?!! Can u imagine a crowded bus at around 1 am? Of course I don't blame the people here; after all day/night work they too deserve their own time or enjoyment. As sun sets across the horizon from marine drive, night life start getting its own color. Stressed mind seek some pleasure with the money earned, but to what extent? Mumbai has everything you wish for.. still I don't see the point in enjoying by spoiling our own body. And it depends on their own maturity level, principles (some are so stupid that they think they are heroes by trying 'things' out, not their mistake but Indian Cinemas to be blamed here, my advance condolences to them).
