Heavy showers in Mumbai has brought daily life almost to a halt. The continuous rainfall in the city over the weekend has left most places flooded and with rain continuing on a busy Monday, citizens are striving hard to get through the day. So, beating Monday Blues along with the gloomy weather outside, Mumbaikars are finding relief in humour. The Internet is buzzing with punny jokes and sarcastic tweets. From massive road cave-ins to bridge collapse and other accidents have left most citizens fuming, but one look through the social media sites, particularly on Twitter — the people are trying to stay afloat and keep their hopes alive with a dash of humour.
Not just that, Twitter has been flooded with videos of the water-logged streets and railway stations and many found their own ‘waterfall’ in the heart of the city at a station stairway.
Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorological Department issued warnings of heavy to very heavy rain over the Konkan region and Goa for the next 48 hours. Traffic has been diverted in many places and the education department of the state also announced holiday for schools, colleges.
As rain continues in the city, here's what buzzing online around the Mumbai rains.
When you hv to leave for the airport at 6 am, but call for the cab at 545am, cos it’s raining . But the cab driver reaches your place at 445 am cos he doesn’t want to be late, (again cos it’s raining). That’s the dedication to work a Mumbaikar brings. #MumbaiRains pic.twitter.com/pJxqYmggRI— Vandana Trivedi (@Vandana_Trivedi) July 10, 2018
It would be easier to ask the rain Gods to change their direction than expect the government to provide the city of #Mumbai with better infrastructure. Every year it gets worse during #MumbaiRains. The city comes to a complete standstill with the slightest of rains.— Amena (@Fashionopolis) July 9, 2018

Many are asking will the infrastructure of the city improve anytime soon?
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

This is how Mumbaikars measure rainfall
The rain is not measured in 'cm' or 'mm' ...
It's measured in 'Train chalu hai ya band hai'...😅 'Mumbai Metropolitan Region'
