Even when a thought of the destruction that happened when the Mumbai rains caused havoc in the year 2005, sends a shiver down the spine. Doesn't it? Just imagine what would happen when the Mumbai rains again hit the city with the year '2005-like' intensity. The extent of destruction of the city and Mumbaikars will shake the entire city if it happens so.

This is really sad that the city is again facing the fury of Monsoon and we can't stop praying for Mumbai and Mumbaikars, who are the victims of a natural calamity at the moment. Mumbai is on high alert, and the normal life of the people has gone for a toss.

Local trains, the lifeline of Mumbai, is on the receiving end majorly and the entire railway system which includes Central Line, Western Line and Harbour Line are not working and the public is left with less rather zero options to commute from a place to another, because even the roads have turned into rivers and lakes.

OMG! Here are some pictures which show how Mumbai Rains are devastating the city and its people.

These pictures got me thinking about safety and security of the public.
