“It was my first night out on Marine Drive. The rainy days were about to start. I sat on the rocks with my friend. And suddenly it started raining. Ohh, I can’t even start to tell you how much people love the first rain here. It was 3 a.m. I saw a group of 3 girls, all dressed up in their short LBDs, probably coming back after party. They got out of their car. And started drenching and dancing in the rain. And no, not a single guy catcalled them.
This is why I love Mumbai.!”
