In the Maximum city of Mumbai there is a space for everyone.

In the Maximum city of Mumbai there is a space for everyone.

I have only been here for a little over a month. I was shocked for most of it and wanted to go back and leave this all behind several times. I felt there would not be a true purpose for me in such e mega-city where everyone was just doing what they wanted.

But, I am starting to realize I was wrong.

In the Maximum city of Mumbai there is a space for everyone.

You just have to find it and keep moving with it. Don’t stop; never stop. Keep the vortex always turning.

There is a way for every means here. A slot for any creed, idea, job type, family and social extractions. It is a city that with its largeness does not dive, but it strangely unifies.

It is incredible that even though the city is over-crowded, filthy and perpetually in chaos, everyone finds a way of being and existing that fits them.

And everyone is close in proximity. You cannot avoid being smacked in the face by Dharavi or seeing the most expensive real estate in Asia while driving south. It is all there, close, undivided, unsolicited, just there for you to see and accept, because Mumbai is not to be controlled, or planned or directed.

Mumbai leads you where it wants, and it does so ruthlessly and unapologetically so and at a pace it gives New York City a kick in the rear.

In the Maximum city of Mumbai there is a space for everyone.

You just have to claim it and hang on it until the flow takes you somewhere else.
