Very sad reminder indeed.

I cherish my memories of Bombay so much that the negative aspects are forgotten in the nostalgia.

I am not too sure if I'll put the question the same way
" Toronto OR Mumbai"

thats our homeland ... it comes with its share of baggages, but thats where we came from.... it cannot be changed...whereas we are in toronto today could be new york or Vancouver tomorrow..who knows...but our origin will never change ...Mumbai

but when we got a chance we moved to Toronto.Why ?
because of so many things which are so much better, those "things" are different for everyone.

it is a paradoxical situation
I think i can best put my thoughts by saying
"My heart takes me to Mumbai....my mind brings me to Toronto."

Mera bharat mahaan ....vive la Canada :D

Mishtar & Tuk Tuk

In spite of all those bomb blasts and other stuff, Mumbai has a charm no other city has ! Toronto is big, very big indeed..but it doesnt have that charm (unless you are on Gerard street :D)
I am not from Mumbai but..I dont think
the Pav-bhaaji near CST rly station can be found anywhere else ! I tried some Pav-bhaji at Bombay sweet house in TO...nothing like that Pav
Bhel-puri from Chowpatty beach ! and that Maalish ! dream on guys.. you cant get that in TO :)
So Mishtar
Viva La Canada for Education and hogging all benefits and then going back..
but
Jai Mumbai all the way ;) ( in my case it would be Jai Bangalore ! ):cheers:

Well said ! Mishtar India, I like your thoughts.


but when we got a chance we moved to Toronto.Why ?
because of so many things which are so much better, those \"things\" are different for everyone


Like you & many other Canadiandesi's I have got a chance rather an opportunity to move to Toronto & Yes, I also wish to have so many things which are so much better there. But Only time will tell how different & how better it works for me. So, Why not experience it ?

I learnt it from somewhere that :

" We are not Human beings having a spiritual experience but

We are spiritual beings having a Human experience"

So, why not Experience it (I mean, Toronto )

;)

Oh no, not Delhi. I lived there and it is nothing like Mumbai. Mumbai has a charm of its own unlike other places i lived or visited. Having lived in 5 countries, my heart goes to Mumbai. If not Toronot then it is Mumbai for me.
Mumbai mere jaan !!

Had been to Dubai, stayed there for 2 yrs ... didn't like the place. Came back to Mumbai.

Have seen many other cities ... Metro Cities, nothing comes close to Mumbai.

Yes Pollution, Population & Corruption are few of the problems (But that holds true for India, not just for Mumbai) ...

Mumbai Bole to Zakaas !!!
