Yeh Hey Mumbai Meri Jaan

  1. If you are a real Mumbaikar and away from Mumbai, you get sentimental
    even if you hear words like Chembur; Dadar; Andheri, Bandra.

  4. Mumbaikars – we will stand in empty trains and will fight for seat in
    crowded ones.
  5. Mumbai – A city where people come to make their career and end up
    making their life.

    ‘agla station’, and ‘next station’
  7. Slow local trains – the one which halts at all stations Fast trains – the one
    which halts in between stations.

    party to banti hai, kat le, jhol, ek number.
  12. Local trains are the only place in Mumbai where men are more civilized
    than women.
  13. In India we drive on the left of the road. In Mumbai we drive on what is
    left of the road.
  14. That awesome moment when in local trains you don’t have to move
    towards the exit, you are simply pushed towards it by the crowd.
  15. While giving directions you say right / left maaro aur waahan pe ek
    bridge girega.
  16. If Borivali passenger gets into a Virar fast train, that’s a serious crime
  17. Once you survive in a Mumbai local during journey from VT to Kalyan or
    vice versa during peak hours, you can survive anywhere in the world.
  18. Train timings (7.27, 8.49 etc) are really important events of life.
  19. In every local train journey you will find at least one person asking “arey
    yeh platform kis taraf aayega?”

    ticket Rs 110. No difference. You can’t sit
    in either.
  27. Getting a Virar fast train from Andheri/
    Borivali during peak hours is more
    difficult than getting into IIT and IIM.
  28. Aur yahan Mumbai mein ghadi sab ke
    pas hai, lekin time kisi ke pas nahi hai.

Yeh hai Mumbai Meri Mumbai, Meri
Jaan… And am proud to be a Mumbaikar…

Ankin bolaaichcha kya.
