Long read alert!!!Being an Indian, its hard to miss out on Mumbai, synonymous with glamorous dreams. Its hot, humid, polluted and corrupt; but it is marvelous, humble, a commoners abode and land of new rising. There is no city in India that can portray the true diversity of Indianess like Mumbai. Blending together different cultures, religions and classes to paint a unique picture, just as vegetables in Pav Bhaji yet unfailingly maintaining a thin divide that goes unnoticed if you don't look deep enough.I chose to fly to Mumbai from Mangalore International Airport. If you have the time for it, I highly recommend travelling by train because the Konkan rail path is visually stimulating and a travel treat in itself. If you are like me who has a boss to report to, then take a flight. Mumbai is well connected International and nationally, so getting there is the least of your worries.
