Mumbai Rains

Mumbai's been in the grip of rain and flood and the city recorded the highest-ever rainfall recorded in a single day in India! My (cousin) sister's husband works in Mumbai and according to an email she sent today morning, "M couldn't go home and had to stay at the office yesterday night. Today all offices, schools etc. are closed There is no electricity, no food and no trains. He reached home at 3.30 in the evening wading through knee deep water and walking the entire stretch home." I'm glad he's OK. Hope the city gets a respite soon.
