It was not easy to say adieu to a city where I lived for more than a dozen of years (November 2015 to March 2018). But finally the day had come and I had to say Goodbye to Mumbai. Mumbai has many names like Maximum city, City of dreams, The City that never sleeps… and so on. Mumbai is a city where citizens really prove the line "Ghar bada nahi hai toh kya hua? Dil toh bada hai." true.
Mumbai is not a city but an institution which teaches you the never say die spirit, the meaning of hard work, acceptance, fight for survival, coexistence, to provide helping hand….. and so on; Mumbai you are my teacher and you taught me a lot.
At the time of crisis whether it is flood, bomb explosion, accident I found everyone in Mumbai as human being, I never found Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian or Parsi.
I made many friends in Mumbai, both at personal and professional level. Through this post, I would like to thank all of them for supporting and helping me whenever I needed; whatever I am today is only because of your support friends.
Cher Mumbai, I am feeling sad to say goodbye and feeling the pain of leaving you behind, but this is life and I have to accept it and move ahead.
Mumbai, I thank you for giving me those beautiful moments of joy, pleasure and happiness in past 12 years.
Like Salman Rushdie said “You can take the boy out of Bombay; you can't take Bombay out of the boy, you know.”; Mumbai you will be always with me in my heart.
