13 Hilarious Alternative Names Twitter Has Suggested For "Winter" In Mumbai

"Winterlet? Winterish? Diet Garmi? Chhota Summer?"

Posted on

Comedian Rohan Joshi went on a bit of rant about Mumbai winters on Twitter earlier today:

Nothing is wet, it's slightly cool early in the mornings and also whenever one is in the shade. Congratulations Mumbai, "winter" is here.

He proposed that the city needs a new name for the season, since "winter" is definitely not an accurate description for it:

Bombay needs a new, unique name for the final season of the year because it isn't really winter. If winter is a dump, what we get is a fart

1. And, thus, the hashtag #AlternativeBombayWinterNames was born.

Winterlet, Winterish, Diet Garmi, Chhota Summer #AlternativeBombayWinterNames

2. It turns out that people have a lot of thoughts about Mumbai's questionable climate, because the suggestions came thick and fast:
