When the monsoon finally arrives, it is a welcome and grand spectacle.
If you are near the sea, you can watch the monsoons approach over the ocean.
First, a ferocious wind blows up. The sky and the sea turn different shades of blue and gray. Clouds roll rapidly across the skies. An expectant hush falls.
Then the storm bursts. People can be seen dancing in the streets, faces turned towards the sky, hands outstretched, enacting their own personal Bollywood rain scene.
The monsoon in Mumbai is believed to cleanse the earth and its people. It is also key to India's agriculture economy, boosting the growth of crops and driving stock markets.
Apart from bringing down temperatures, the monsoon also lowers room rates for travelers, turning Mumbai into a great off-season destination.
This year, however, the onset of Monsoon in Mumbai had been ferocious, relentless and continuous for days together. How Mumbai is coping up? Crumbling? Or bravely fighting it out?
Here are some of the pictures how gallant citizens of Mumbai are facing the fury!
