Mumbai monsoons have finally arrived! Now now, I’m from Delhi and I won’t lie – I’ve had a love-hate relationship with the rains in the city. Delhi has four seasons, Bombay seemingly has one – sweat. However, the rains are a welcome change. I mean, I was unsolicitedly drenched on my first day here some years ago; but that’s another story. The baarish here, like most other things in the city, grows on you and before you know it, you’re in love.

Here’a what no one tells you about the best season in the city:

1. It’s a breath of fresh air…
