As scheduled my flight landed at sharp 8:45 p.m. on the runway, i was fascinated the moment i entered the newly constructed Terminal (T2) and was was truly mesmerized looking at the decor and the ambiance it made me go Aww! and ask.."Is this" Aamchi Mumbai?"i saw it for the first time since i am used to traveling by railways. The moment i stepped out i was greeted with the chaos of the passengers rushing towards the cabs. Of course it was peak hour and i was warned by my parents that i might get stuck up in the traffic but still i insisted them to avoid picking me up at the airport . I am a Cardiologist by profession, born and brought up in Mumbai but married and practicing in Hyderabad. I had a hectic later half year while practicing and switching my job from one hospital to another . Hence I decided to take a week long break,as it was new year's eve and i hadn't seen my parents since long and to catch up with old friends and family. Like i was told , I was stuck up at the traffic at Prabhadevi junction and since i was travelling alone i had ample time to think & analyse on how far Mumbai has changed , It wasn't surprising though i am a 90's kid. precisely a Non Tech-Savvy generation then.
Mumbai, the Financial capital of India has over the years become of the biggest cosmopolitan cities of the world. The city produces the world's top ranking richest men contributing a maximum towards the GDP. It's colonial architecture and sleek new high rise buildings are an epitome which is why its called, like Vegas, "Mumbai: A City that never sleeps".Railways are the backbone of the city which truly puts the city to a halt on its being non operational. Huge Malls, Multiplexes, Film City Foreign Brands , High Profile Restaurants, Foreign Investors, Night Life, etc and not to forget the Traumatizing Traffic has made "Mumbai a concrete Jungle"
A national newspaper had once reported a statistical data of 65% increase in the number of permissions granted for tree cutting 2019 as compared to the previous year. Hence highest number of :Bad Air days", harmful carbon emission causing more breathing diseases in the city, this further contributes towards Global Warming, more population spending maximum savings on health and ofcourse a bigger hole in the ozone layer. Although the much talked about and liked government has been efficient in cultivating awareness about cleanliness, hygiene and spreading green cover, BMC has lacked in setting a benchmark for the need to minimize the concrete jungle. Mumbaikars too lack in the ideology of running behind the money instead of health and happiness. Although every metro city is a concrete jungle today, Mumbai has become a wolf in its desire to be come "Shanghai" and losing its "Island Beauty"Last but not the least, hate it or love it, but u cannot ignore it.
