Unfazed by the flooded streets, this boy has come out to take advantage of the situation and play water polo! In his hands is a coconut that he found floating in the waters! Mumbai is typified by this opportunistic never say die behaviour.


  1. I noticed that about most inhabitants of India. When life hands them lemons, they make lemonade ;-)

  2. I guess when you live in a monsoon region you worry more if the rains DON'T come.

  3. nice flooded street shot, looks like a disaster!

  4. No chance that's the same autorickshaw driver we caught taking a nap a couple days ago is it?

    Thought we were going to have streets like this yesterday -- there was a big front coming our way but it slowed down and eventually just fell apart before it got here.

  5. that is a lot of water. So in Mumbai, kids can take a boat to school while in Northern Ontario, some kids have been known to use their snowmobiles to get to school (but that's just during the winter time).

    Thanks for visiting my North Bay Blog.
