Monsoon in Mumbai is like winter is to Delhi and Durga Pujo is to Bengal. There is no denying the daunting aspect of the season that causes a mess given the wonderful drainage of Mumbai. Nonetheless, this particular season is cherished by all. Cutting chai and onion fritters paint an appetizing image of this season that makes life beautiful for all Mumbaikars.

Whether you’re a part of the city or far away from it, truth is that Mumbaikars have courageously navigated through it, and the brotherhood and understanding come to the fore at events like this. The chaos in the workspaces, wonder in the eyes of children and the flashing colours of umbrellas that are exhibited on the lanes is what makes this season a memorable one for all Mumbaikars.

Rainy season in Mumbai is true love, as the sea seems fresher as the city that never sleeps seems to slow down while experiencing a continuous snag in their daily activities. This is the only season which affects people’s lives enough to actually become a part of their daily conversations.

And also in this much-stuffed city, it is easier to walk to your destination than getting caught up in the traffic jams. Don’t forget to pack a pair of water-proof shoes as it is a must, while you even think of visiting at this time of the year. Mumbai weather is quite predictable except for the rains here, which makes you realise to take things slow. Mother nature and the soothing aroma of clay heightens this encounter.

This is the most beautiful time to visit the city of dreams, to stroll on Juhu Beach and enjoy the rains. Don’t try to cover yourself, let the rain soak through your shirt and clothes, have a cutting chai, the only solution for all problems in the world. The city becomes cleaner, appears greener and feels fresher with each shower. Mumbai is madness and it definitely needs its darling rains to create wonder. The city becomes cleaner, appears greener and feels fresher with each shower.

The drool-worthy Kanda-Bhaji, Dabeli and Vada-Pav make this season much more appetizing, a true pleasure inspired with the culture of Maharashtra. As is always said, Mumbai has its layers, it would never give you completely on the face, you need to wait and seek through the rain. There must be so many instances when you see a smile appearing as the cloud gathers while bystanders come out to feel the first rains. That is the culture of Mumbai, they adapt and move ahead without a care. Make sure that a late-night walk on the Marine Drive is one of the best things to do in Mumbai monsoon.
