Mumbai Meri Jaan

This is from an SMS forward. Drawings are mine.


Bombay has no bombs and is a harbour not a bay.

Churchgate has neither a church  nor a gate. It is a railway station.

There is no darkness in Andheri.
… Lalbaag is neither red nor a garden.

No king ever stayed at Kings Circle.
Nor did Queen Victoria stay at Victoria Terminus.

Nor is there any princess at Princess Street .
Lower Parel is at the same level as Parel.

There are no marines or sailors at Marine Lines.
The Mahalaxmi temple  is at Haji Ali not at Mahalaxmi.

Teen bati is a junction of 3 roads, not three lamps.
Trams used to terminate at Kings circle not Dadar*TramTerminus. (Dadar T.T..).

Breach Candy is not a sweetmeat market, but there is a Hospital.

There are no Iron smiths at Lohar chawl.
There are no pot makers at Kumbhar wada.

Lokhandwala complex is not an Iron and steel market.
Null bazaar does not sell taps.
You will not find ladyfingers at Bheendi Bazar.

Funny Mumbai… zara hatke zara bachke yeh hai Mumbai meri jaan
