With a long career in the banking field spanning over 36 years, Sunil Kumar Vohra has stayed in around 14 to 15 places across the country. He was posted in Mumbai as the Deputy General Manager of Bank of India on February 29 this year, and is in the city of dreams for the first time. Vohra, who used to live in Bhopal before this, says that he had an idea about the city before coming and his “expectations were not different from reality”.

What he likes:

What Vohra finds most appealing about the city is the discipline among the people. “People here are more disciplined than in other cities,” he says. He is also happy with the cleanliness here. The law and order situation is another one of the features that he finds praiseworthy. “Law and order in Mumbai is good. People follow rules and regulations,” he says. The two places he loves to visit and relax are the Marine Drive and the Priyadarshini Park of Napeansea Road, both giving a serene view of the sea.

What he doesn’t like:

The humid weather in summer doesn’t agree well with Mr Vohra. However, what he sees as the biggest inconvenience is the traffic. The commute from his home at Napeansea Road to his office at Bandra-Kurla Complex takes just 45 minutes, but going anywhere else is a hassle. Jovially narrating one such incident of unending travel, he says, “Once I went to Borivli for some work. From there, I started at 6:40 pm and reached home only at 11:20 pm in the night.”
