10 Reasons why the Mumbai Metro shouldn't be built

I need a break. I can't always be blogging about why the Metro should be built. So I have come up with a new list of 10 reasons why the Metro shouldn't be built

  1. I just love thriller novels. I kinda need 5-7 hours to complete this book, but invariably I haven't completed by the time I leave for office. Delays give just enough time to read the climax before reaching office
  2. I want to quarrel. I can't beat the fact that the crowded buses and the traffic jams give enough opportunity to pick up a fight. Where will I get such an opportunity when the Mumbai Metro starts
  3. I need an excuse to reach home late. Travellers on the Andheri Kurla road know that it doesn't matter when you leave office if you are leaving between 7 and 9, you reach home at 10
  4. I go to office with my GF/BF
  5. I favor Mukesh Ambani and since it is REL and not RIL executing the project, we should just dump it. It is not going to work
  6. It will not affect me as I won't work in this company till 2011
  7. This and other metros will be a drag on the Govt's finances as we don't have enough money
  8. Such a project is likely to bring more prosperity to Mumbai and we don't want people from other regions / countries to migrate here "Aamchi mati aamchi manoos"
  9. Constuction will cause more traffic - Can't thing of a more genuine reason Well I would request that the readers also add to this list by putting on their creative hats...

Metro Ads

During the last visit, I took a lot of pictures of the ads of Mumbai Metro. The ads are simple enough and I like them. You can see most of them here
