I like Mumbai. The hustle and bustle and everything else that it is associated with. I like the crowds. And the cacophony of noises that accompany them. It is a city unlike any other. Probably the only one in the world where I can eat from a roadside stall without the feeling of having being stared at. I like the apparent indifference and apathy. The fact that everyone here is so busy. I like the disorder and chaos and the challenges that they pose.
But most importantly, I like the fact that I can inadvertently bump into someone and not hear the sympathetic apologies. The fact that I can hide my handicap behind a pair of dark trendy shades and no one would be any wiser.
