Maximum City!

I was thinking of calling this post ‘Leaving on a jet plane’ but then, you people already know that I don’t believe in using clichés, right? I mean, one does need to use some imagination, sometimes!

Anyhow, after another prolonged absence, I’d like to tell you guys that I’m leaving to Mumbai tomorrow, for my first post-MBA job at RPG Enterprises, and well I’m EXCITED!!:D

It will be first trip to Mumbai in nearly 15 years, and this time it will be a trip that lasts many months. The Mumbai wishlist goes like:

a) Do well at work

b) Visit some/all of the awesome places in and around the city

c) Explore a bit of Madh Island. (That might be scary though, coz most of the dead bodies found in C.I.D. by ACP Pradyuman and Co. are found there. )

Of course, if anyone can make me waterproof so that I can bear the Mumbai monsoon, I’ll be glad. And yes, a jetpack to commute, instead of the Mumbai locals would be much appreciated.

Santa, are you listening? All my 831 FB friends, are you? All the zillions of bloggy admirers, are you?

P.S. For the uninitiated, ‘Maximum City’ is the title of a superbly fantastic book about Mumbai by Suketu Mehta. If you haven’t done so already, I strongly suggest reading it.

And when you get sick of the sucky humidity, JUST HEAD OUT! Maharashtra is beautiful during monsoons (yes, the kind that monsoon humidity haters can also enjoy). Even otherwise, from now on till about Jan, even the beaches are brilliant. So just explore! And tell me if you need some guidance. :P

Personally, I love Mumbai though I haven't got to stay there for more than a week. There is something very magical yet real and warm about Mumbai. Hope you have a good time there. Btw, this is my first time on your blog and I liked it.

Interesting write and welcome to Mumbai. I am sure once you are here, you wouldn't want to leave. Being the rainy season you have to visit the Worli Seaface and let the waves splash at you. Its an awesome experience. :)

Congratulations.

New here and loved it :)

Mumbai is certainly some place to be! I have always wanted to visit the city.
Will try to catch that book somewhere. :)
