Yes you’re right the whole Country considers Mumbai as the heart of India, Even the world does. Such was the excitement I had for the Global Citizen India Festival where Coldplay was Playing Little did we Realize we had forgotten the main aim of the festival which clearly stated Sanitation, Education, and Gender Equality. Which I found in scarce during my Journey all around Mumbai. Well, then I met this new friend in Mumbai and then we got talking about how amazing Coldplay was and how she was never allowed to go to a concert.
This got me thinking what else hasn’t yet changed and made me think more deeply which made me ask her how her family was and I was disgusted as to know girls were still treated so horribly. where they still follow untouchability when she gets her period gives her separate clothes, our utensils, and even a place. it couldn’t get horrible than this and we talk about gender equality when such things still exist. But this made me think we should have more integration into our education systems for us to participate in social schemes and actually bring a change into the Society.
Mumbai did get me a sense of bringing a change into myself and be someone but not without forgetting that in someone else’s happiness ours.
I’d like to end with a Quote.
