Mumbai turns into a new and beautiful leaf each monsoon with dark clouds bringing much joy to the busy city that claims to never sleep. With it though, comes the daily struggles of commuting with water-logged roads and ocverflowing drains threatening both man and machine.

This year has been no different with very heavy and continuous rain from late Sunday night wrecking havoc in the city. The roads have gone under and where they haven't, potholes dictate terms. While the indomintable spirit of Mumbaikars is saluted each year, the local civic authorities and their claims too are lambasted every single year.

And with more rain forecast in the coming days, things are unlikely to get any better.
