The race isn't ova..cuz I haven't won yet..!!

The city of dreams,
The city of screams.
The city of riches and poor,
The city of accidents and cure.

The lifestyle you can die to live,
Hotels, malls and night clubs give.
Tall buildings is the view you'll see here,
But taller are the dreams of people who live there.

Everyone in the city wants to touch the sky,
As they feel it is not too high.
Work is the only thing they've time to give,
They've truly forgot they have a life to live.

The city never stops,
Whether it is calamities or blasts.
It's not because they don't fear,
It's because they need food to eat and clothes to wear.

The city of glamour and fashion,
The city of love and attraction.
The city has got its own style,
And it changes from mile to mile.

The city dreams to be like Shanghai,
It is very popularly known as

I just wrote this poetry for a city which never really stops..Mumbai.!
It goes on and on, no matter what..!!
It is one of the world's top 10 expensive locations.
This poetry is my salute to all the Mumbaikars and Mumbai.
