Mumbai, Meri Jaan! But well if you ask me, I'd say Mumbai is not the city I would want to settle in. It's amazing exposure, crazy learning and career opportunities, food and business hub, but I wouldn't want to live in a place full of pollution and chaos.

Here are 20 things I hate about Mumbai despite falling in love with its vibe:

1. TRAFFIC.

There is nothing nice about Mumbai traffic except the one-liners on every traffic for people to read. If you're a first time visitor, it will drive you crazy. Trust me, it's not worth it.

2. EVERYTHING IS BLOODY FAR.

Mumbai is HUGE! People commute every day from one end to another for work and it is just painful and tiresome to see them. You literally have to plan beforehand because it's all too far.

3. SO NOT CONVENIENT.

As most everything is far, it doesn't matter if its public transport or your own vehicle, it is extremely inconvenient.

4. WEATHER IS ALWAYS IN EXTREMES.

It's so humid and breeze-less all the time as if there is no weather type you can dedicate to the city.

5. THERE IS NO WINTER.

Surprise! There is nothing like winter here, a few cool breezes and done.

6. THE POLICEWALA UNCLE WON'T HEAR ME OUT BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW MARATHI.

If you don't know how to speak Marathi, you can't work your ways out, That simple.

7. THERE IS NO FEELING OF BELONGING.

Despite being so crowded, this city will always make you feel alone as if you belong nowhere. When you look out of the window and see these concrete skyscrapers, you don't feel in awe of them.

8. IT'S EXPENSIVE TO LIVE IN THE CITY OF DREAMS.

Well, everything is so expensive from transportation to food to property. Unless you're Ambani, you have to get used to being broke time and again.

9. REJECTION FROM AUTOWALAS.

You have to get used to everyday rejections from autowalas because their command is higher than us, I mean come on.

10. CROWDED BEYOND BELIEF.

It's annoying when you have to deal with people 24*7 at work/college and it gets worse when you want to get home and be in your calm zone, but it's so full of people and everybody's in a rush that you just can't.

11. IT IS NOT AT ALL SPACIOUS.

The houses are small, the roads are narrow and don't fit into the ongoing traffic and it's just too congested.

12. YOU NEVER SEE EMPTY ROADS.

Try being outside at 2 am in midnight and you will know. Mumbai = forever traffic.

13. THERE IS NO SPOT TO SIT AND RELAX WITH NO HUMANS AROUND.

Because you're surrounded by people everywhere and the population is more than what it can suffice, there is no spot where you can just cut off from the world and relax.

14. BEACHES? LOL.

Whatever Beaches we have here are full of dirt and unkempt where you see unpleasant sights and they are just simply there. Nobody really goes there.

15. HARDLY ANY GREENERY.

A city without greenery is what? I wouldn't want to live in a concrete man-made jungle in crowded areas. No fresh air and cool breeze, wow!

16. EVERYONE WANTS TO SHOW OFF.

Everyone wants to show off and they think they are something. There is so much competition, it's like a survival game altogether!

17. MUMBAI IN RAINS IS THE WORST.

Messy and disgusting sums up what Mumbai is in rainy seasons. There are frequent floods which force you to be at home and avoid all the important work you have to do.

18. FORGET PRIVACY.

Lol, what is privacy in Mumbai?

19. MUMBAI LOCALS IS ONE BIG MESS.

You need willpower and bravery to travel with locals because you literally have to fight your way through all the people rushing in. Plus, it's so dirty and ill-maintained.

20. THERE IS NO CONCEPT OF LONG DRIVES.

If you feel like driving, taking your bae on a long drive, think again because first, the roads suck and second, you will be stuck in traffic majority of the time.

These little things somehow also make the city stand out, but it's high time we stop loving them and start looking them like actual problems.
