The sacred mantras of Mumbai Monsoon


If anyone has lived in Mumbai during Monsoons, there is no place like this. The rains come without any warning and it just pours and pours. The city has such a strong momentum that it never stops, but it surely slows down during the rain. I have always loved vada-pao's  and recently I have started cherishing them more as I live my life in the West. During the rain, the mumbai-ites line up for a cup of chai (recipe follows) and vada paos (recipe follows). I am surely one of the people who likes the simplicity of street foods, but there is nothing like eating on the streets of Mumbai. Watching the energy and the natives and the tourists and smelling the divine aroma of dry earth absorbing the rain. The sight across the sea and the greenery are awesome. I just love to go out for a long drive while it’s raining.  The clean smell of rain-washed air and the washed trees is my favourite sight during monsoon. Hope I can visit Mumbai soon, hope it will pour while I am there and hope vada-paos taste as great as they are in my memory.
