As someone who is based in this maddening place called Mumbai, I feel it is my duty to give some practical tips for all of you when you are here and that is in my next message. The aim is not to scare you but to make sure that you do not encounter difficulties while in Mumbai. Welcome to Mumbai and I am sure that you would have fruitful time in this chaotic town !
