Between the Hustle and Bustle we live
Moving continuously at a fast pace,
Racing through to be somewhere
Sometimes just to be in the first place.
Cars and buses occupy the roads
Leaving not a tiny place to walk,
Such is the life of living in a city
Busy and loud round the clock.
The waves hitting around the marine drive stones
Scotching heat through half the year,
While rains fall and flood the roads
But life in Mumbai never ceases to stop.
Make your way through the crowded trains
Fight for your rights to grab a seat,
Such is a life of the general public
Always finding solutions to beat the heat.
This is the life of a Mumbai local
Working hard to make a living,
With expenses rising and touching the skies
Higher are their dreams thriving.
The city lights twinkling so bright
A view so mesmerising while soaring above,
A journey of a Mumbai Local
Is thus incomplete without their famous vada pav.
