Mumbai local trains - every second matters

I hop, skip and jump to get into the trains day in and day out (now you know my weight loss secret). Every single second makes so much of a difference... if I slow down a little bit, I might miss a connecting train, and then miss the next connecting train. And then get late, feel guilty the entire day and wait for another day.

Worst part is when at times to avoid any risk of missing my first train for the day, I take a rickshaw to my next halt only to get a glimpse of my second train bidding goodbye to me!

Life and Mumbai local trains have their own ways of teaching people the importance of time.

same here... we love the trains, we hate the trains, but we can't live without them... they are aptly called the lifeline of Mumbai!
