Monsoon in Mumbai unleashes an unimaginable kind of horror upon the people of the city. You can hear everyone cribbing about heavy rains and potholes, the pests and the mosquitoes, and the garbage that just lies there like a lazy man on a couch.
Red FM RJ Malishka recently went to war with BMC over this civic problem. She pointed at the potholes and blamed BMC for inefficiency. The BMC fired back at her with a notice asking to submit a fine, but Malishka has her share of supporters.
Now VJ Jose, in his own characteristic humor, dives into the mess and goes around Bandra in search of the truth. Guess what? He discovers that the BMC should not be blamed at all!
I checked on a few areas near Bandra myself. Shame on these Mumbai citizens constantly blaming our authorities for things like potholes. pic.twitter.com/RuidDTO4Lo

Wait, what? Don’t you get it? He is taking potshots at the BMC using potholes! That video is full of sarcasm, if you need to be explained things.
Jose hilariously points at the potholes but refuses to call them so. He says that they are hi-tech speed breakers or serve as tea bowls for birds and people.
“It smells nice over here. I am getting smells of vegetables, I’m getting smells of fruits, some really interesting smells over here,” he says walking by a garbage dump.
And comments are flooding on his post appreciating him for his take and using his power for exposing a sad reality. The video has collected almost 12,000 ‘likes’ and more than 9,000 retweets.
Oh! I haven’t explored these places of Heritage in Bandra! I am coming.. now.. Surely it’s better than Haji Ali or Gateway of India..

BMC can have excuse that these are just the speed breakers in case @BeingSalmanKhan gets in mood drive on his own

And meanwhile in Mumbai, people are tuning themselves to the spirit of monsoon and enjoying the part of the city even if it a trouble maker.
Enjoy the rains and the tea!
