40 really dumb things to do in Mumbai

Found these on net.

Some are really funny and true.

Some I don't get it.





40 really dumb things to do in Mumbai


  1. Get into a Virar train if you are going to Borivali
  2. Buy 100 buck windcheaters from Churchgate, they are all the ones recycled by the Bhandiwalis
  3. Eat Bhel at Kailash Parbat
  4. Call a cop ‘Pandu’
  5. Argue with a Koli Fisherwoman
  6. Get a 11 rupee massage at Girgaum Chowpatty
  7. Bet against India in a game, Australia is the safest option
  8. Buy enhancement medicines from Van – Travelling Hakims who are the desi versions of the flying doctors
  9. Call up 26407383 Beanbags thinking it’s an escort service
  10. Avoid asking the Sandwich wallah on Dalal Street for market tips
  11. Stand in front of Amitabh/Shah Rukh/Salmaan’s house -- you look stupid and it's a waste of time
  12. Go to work when a Shiv Sena bandh is on
  13. Visit sleazy video parlours and get caught in a raid
  14. Get excited and start jumping when someone offers you Paanch ka Dollar, it’s just a tiny 5 rupee coin
  15. Go for a Shiv Sena rally in hope for a Free Vada Pav and Shiv Sena Banian
  16. Call a Maharastrian guy Bhaiya, no matter how respectful you meant it
  17. While commuting, don’t tease people defecating near the tracks, they throw stones back at the train
  18. Hang outside the train, poles might hit you before the crowds will
  19. Tease a Hijra
  20. Bribe a porter to grab a seat in V.T., chances are he might run off with your money
  21. Get conned at Fountain from guys selling cheap mobiles. They mesmerize and wrap soap bars
  22. Pronounce Sandhurst correctly, Sandas Rd makes more sense
  23. Donate money to the Crying Cab driver. He has conned thousands
  24. Invite Brass Polishwalas into your house
  25. Assume that booksellers in Fountain are dumb, they know their Pulitzers and Man Booker winners more than us
  26. Give 100 bucks to a conductor and expect him to give you change, he will sadistically torment you till the last stop
  27. Have lassi outside Dadar Station (west), they add Tissue Paper while preparing it
  28. Throw stones at monkeys in Borivali National Park
  29. Loiter around in Shivaji Park on Dec 6th
  30. Ask for a bargain at the Maharastrian Cloth store in Dadar
  31. Go for midnight mass at Mahim church thinking you can pick up girls
  32. Buy fire crackers from Essabhai, Crawford Market and travel in train
  33. Go to Mondegar and ask for a Jain Pav Bhaji
  34. Look straight and walk, We have open manholes
  35. Wear Brown Khakis shirts, People will mistake you for BMC staff
  36. Ask for Warranty & Guarantee from the Mallu Electronic stalls in Fountain area
  37. Search for the Kala Ghoda in Kala Ghoda
  38. Ask why statues in Mumbai have one finger pointed like umpires
  39. Apply Rai ka Tel on your head and travel by public transport
  40. Go to Haji Ali during high tides

Kailas Parbat near Dadar station (Central Railway side) had been caught couple of times for adulterating lassi with blotting paper. He also adds excess gelatin in the yogurt to make it very thick.

I dont know what is the situation now, but I would never drink that lassi or buy dahi from that store.

I recall a Kailas Parbat near Strand cinema on main road in colaba. Could it be a branch in Dadar? They are forced to use tissues and syahi-sokh/blotting paper because clients ask for thick layer of malai on top of lassi. I used to eat there a lot cause a gfd of mine lived near this place in 3rd Pasta Lane.

Hahahaha ...Try doing it sometime when you are in Mumbai . You will face the wrath of the mighty Virar mandali and it would be like sailing vs. the opposite waves.

We had a friend from our college visiting us and I , along with roommates, was living in Borivali in late 90s. Poor guy , got into Virar train and could somehow manage to get off only in next station Dahisar and that too , after facing a volley of abuse without knowing what was wrong in boarding this train to get off in Borivali.

45. Go to Juhu beach expecting a clean beach... One must ONLY go there either for a morning jog, Ganpati visarjan or to eat Golas/Chat...

Before the BMC cleared the beach of encroachments, there was this amazing Pav Bhaji outlet there. They had made an enclosure for people to sit on the sand and eat . This time I went there and there is nothing worth mentioning.

I guess all the good eateries have moved inside the big malls. And they use gloves too .
