This is the scene at Mumbai’s “world-famous” Juhu Beach. It was low tide and raining but there were still some waves coming in. Scores of people were walking on the sand along the coast while several scores of others were playing football.
That is the good part! But one look at all the litter and trash and I literally wanted to run away from the place. My first ever visit to the area was unpleasant, smelly and a huge disappointment!
I was surprised to see how so many youngsters could be running and prancing around in all that garbage.
But that, they say, is Mumbai – the city that “carries on” despite the huge odds residents face day in and day out. And that is why, they say, Mumbai is a city that keeps moving – never mind the hiccups!
