Tweets and Mumbai rains compete against each other
While life has come to a standstill in Mumbai due to heavy rains, people are hooked on to their smartphones for updates and simply for fun. People are tweeting about their joy, happiness, sorrow and all the problems caused by Mumbai rains.

WE HAVE all heard about effect of Mumbai rains and its fluctuating moods. The city has received 185.3 mm rainfall in the last 24 hours, which is also the heaviest rainfall this season. The Mumbai police urged people not to make any unnecessary travel plans for the next few hours to avoid any untoward incidents. After a lull of three days, Mumbai has again been hit by torrential rainfall - and with a lot of time to kill and nowhere to go Tweeples are tweeting away their experiences, pictures and views under #MumbaiRains.

While most of the tweeples are angry by the clogged roads and the fact that the government cannot look into the matter and prepare the city for rains like this - there are some who are just going with the flow and having fun. Sunjay Suri, actor and producer tweeted, “Unfinished business always catches up, look at #MumbaiRains :)". while Amit Mehra campared the rains to women and tried to act funny when he wrote, “Mumbai Rains are like women, Beautiful and Scary and once they start, there's no stopping them :-).”

Preity Zinta on the other hand had a tough day yesterday that was made tougher by the Mumbai rains. When she tweeted, she sounded angry and defensive. She wrote, “Pushed n jumped on at the airport. It was raining so I slipped. Wasn't hiding my face was trying 2 recover frmthe shock of 40 camera flashes.” This was followed by a tirade of angry tweets about the fact that she twisted her ankle as well did not improve her mood.

Some also poked fun at the MNS and tweeted, “Is Raj Thakrey doing anything for the clouds which came from Bihar ??? ... #MumbaiRAINS.” Some also equated going back home to an adventure while tweeting, “The Indian Monsoon - The only season where going back home from work can make you feel like your a part of an Adventure Film. #mumbairains.” Millions of people are tweeting away and it is difficult to say whether twitter rain or the actual rain is raining down faster!
