Social media is abuzz with woes of Mumbaikars dealing with heavy rains, failing infrastructure of the city, and bosses who just won't budge and give them a leave instead. While Mumbai police has done commendable work in helping out the citizens in need, Mumbai administration has failed to provide substantial relief. In this exasperating farrago of events, Mumbaikars turn to humour for even the little consolation it gives.
It's a possibility.
There is a strong possibility that Mumbai infrastructure will be ready and prepared for monsoons in the future. There is also a possibility that climate change may have elliminated rainfall altogether by then.— Vir Das (@thevirdas) July 9, 2018
When Mumbai gets creative with critique of their predicament.
In Mumbai earlier rain was measured as ‘train chalu hai k bandh hai’ nowadays it is measured as ‘bridge hai k gir gaya’ #MumbaiRains— [email protected] (@meckoni) July 10, 2018
I think #MumbaiRains can be listed under government achievements under the category of "Providing irrigation to farmers in close collaboration with gods"— Madhavan Narayanan (@madversity) July 10, 2018
Is it too much to ask, han? Bolo na.
What Mumbai desperately requires today is a romantic CM, who will open his window, check the weather outside, look at his bed inside,check the weather outside, look at his bed inside and then declare a state holiday...#MumbaiRains— Atul Khatri (@one_by_two) July 9, 2018
Never leaving home ever again.
Nadiya ke paar, office humaar.

2 eyes, 4 things to look out for, kese how?
Mumbaikars are very confused.While walking, do they look:1. To the sky for falling overbridges and planes2. Down for potholes and collapsing roads3. Sideways for falling trees and burning buildings4. Or straight for policemen looking for plastic bags. #MumbaiRain— Sandiip Bhardwaj (@srajb) July 5, 2018
