With the onset of July, Mumbai saw itself drowning in the heaviest downpour of the season yet. To make things worse, traffic is at its most annoying, cars remain submerged in thigh-deep waters and the city is in a state of complete chaos. Heavy rainfall in Mumbai crippled the financial capital for the last couple of days. The severe flooding irked people who vented their anger online. And while the spirit of the city is worth commending, we are literally a few months away from 2020. It is really high time that the financial capital of the country got equipped to deal with the monsoon in a better manner. Many Mumbaikars took to Twitter to post updates about the situation in their locality and also trolled the BMC with hilarious memes, especially since the civic body claimed they were fully prepared. The rains left many places in the city and its suburbs waterlogged and many took it to social media to complain in forms of memes.

As Mumbai battles torrential rain, Amitabh Bachchan has used a reference from his 1979 film The Great Gambler in a post to incite humour on Twitter. Do Lafzon Ki Hai is a memorable song featuring Big B and Zeenat Aman and was filmed on a Gondola in Venice’s Grand Canal. The situation in Mumbai is pretty much similar to that of the scenario in Big B’s meme at the moment as the Maharashtra capital witnessed the heaviest rain over a 24-hour period in a decade today.

The rainfall in the 24-hour period before 8.30 am Tuesday was the highest since the July 26, 2005 deluge in Mumbai, officials said. Lakhs of commuters were stranded on Monday at railway stations across the city’s suburban railway network after about 200 local train services were cancelled due to the rains. Mumbai airport’s main runway was also shut due to the heavy rainfall and several flights were diverted to other airports.
