9 Things Mumbaikars Want, Need, And Deserve

Peace, love, cutting chai.

Starting Friday morning, @WeAreMumbai (curated this week by Aditi) began tweeting under the hashtag #WhatMumbaiWants.

Thanks to the support of several Mumbaikars, the hashtag became India’s #1 trending topic, and even briefly trended worldwide.

Mumbai’s desires ranged from necessarily serious…

… to laugh-out-loud funny.

And a few themes emerged as Mumbai’s most popular demands. Here’s #WhatMumbaiWants:

2. 1. RAIN! Real, heavy, cool rain!
