While the masses are struggling, there are few Mumbaiites who are trying to keep the rest informed
While several areas in and around Mumbai are inundated, the railway tracks are flooded, trains have come to a halt and road traffic is struggling to move an inch, there are Mumbaiites who are going online to inform people of the scenario and caution them. There are some who are also joking about it since neither Mumbai nor its dwellers are new to this yearly event, which almost seems planned.
Scores of people are tweeting to ensure those cooped up inside their homes or planning to step out, know what’s going on outside. Here are a few:
