The vicinity around magnificent Bungalow of popular film star and heart throb of millions Amitabh Bachchan is fully submerged in water and the star is out for shooting in one of the studios in Mumbai.

There are reports that a high tide likely to arrive anytime in Mumbai may create havoc in the life of the citizens after this metropolis already witnessing heavy traffic snarls and the majority of its areas fully submerged in water. Due to the excessive rains and the sea having been overfilled with excessive high tide water Mumbai has literally turned into a flooded city with water has come to the level of half of the human body.

The Mumbai’s local trains have been badly affected as almost all the railway’s lines have been fully submerged in water. Hundreds and thousands of local commuters have been stranded and held up in their respective offices. The life line of the nation and the economic capital of the country Mumbai usually witnesses such huge bottlenecks during the rainy seasons as the BMC despite having the maximum budget in thousands of crores compared to the other municipalities of the country never comes to the permanent rescue of the citizens with its majority of roads full of potholes and no arrangements of the exit of water cloggings on a vast scale.

Though Mumbai is considered to be the glamorous city housing Bollywood making the maximum numbers of films and being the economic capital running the economy of the country, the civic condition of this metropolis is too poor and worrisome as compared to the metropolises of other states of the country. Mumbai houses the biggest slums in Dharavi and is also the main hub of the glamour world. The pitiable and worrisome situation due to the possible high tide in the offing and majority of the Mumbai having been filled with water to the human knee and waist its seems that the traditional Ganesh Chathurti idol emerging process will also come to the halt. It may be recalled that Maharashtra and in particular Mumbai celebrates Ganesh Chathurthi to the fullest with hundreds of thousands of households emerging the idols in the sea till 31st of August or 3rd September.

Let’s hope that Mumbai comes out of this danger and there is no loss to life. The government authorities in Mumbai have announced the alert of 24 hours and Mumbaites have been directed to stay put in their respective houses for another next 24 hours. CHUTTI has been declared in all the offices of MUMBAI for two days. There have been 77 to 100 milliliters of rain till now which is considered to be a dangerous rain. Brake shave been applied to the life line of Mumbai. AAMCHI MUMBAI has become a DOOBTI MUMBAI.
