Is also your city.
It has stories and loris and magic and tears
Of dreamers and doers; of people with fear
Of vada pav and brun maska and
Bhel puri in the bylanes.
Of potters and paan wallas and
Policewallas who reign
Of its Kolis and tolis and Bollywood champagne,
This is a story city.
Twenty stories. Twenty lives. Twenty times real. Meet this Mumbai.
