Settling down in Mumbai

Settling down in Mumbai was not a matter of choice for me. It was a matter of compulsion. After my father's death, I moved to Mumbai as my brother and sister are settled here. This city has a lot to offer in terms of jobs, lifestyle and one of the best things about this city is people are friendly and helpful.
I have suddenly found friends beyond Facebook and I'm enjoying this. One thing that I miss about Pune is its cleanliness. Mumbai is full of trash. Even in the posh areas there is a pile of garbage.
If you can overlook the garbage and the endless struggle of people trying to make two ends meet, you can enjoy this city.
This city is compared to New York, I have never been to New York so I can't comment on it. Recently I visited Dubai and can honestly say that Mumbai doesn't come close to Dubai in comparison. The wide roads, the cleanliness and the superb infrastructure welcomes you to the city.
This post is  however about Mumbai and not Dubai so let me not digress. I have settled down in a small suburb in Mumbai and am very happy and at peace. Today I had fever so I didn't go to office so I have written two posts in one day.
This city has given me jobs that I love doing. I also like my lifestyle and the interesting conversations I have with my friends. Our group comprises of five people and each one is unique in their own way. This group of friends and the work I'm doing at office is the reason why I'm so happy and at peace. Very soon I shall write my book and the support I get from my friends and readers will see me through the process. Time to wind up the post more about Mumbai and my life in Mumbai later...
