    Like how you still call the place Bombay.. Mumbai just doesn't hold that feeling of cosmopolitanism and vibrancy that Bombay does.. :-)

    I hope Colombo or any other city in the island wouldn't mindlessly change the names that people cant relate to just for the sake of blind nationalism

    Call me a snob or whatever, but as far as my family & friends are concerned, it will always be Bombay to us. :)

    Thanks, but not many here see it that way. In fact, some would wish me great harm. :)

    Back to the topic, Mumbai is a rapidly growing city indeed.

    I gave the the car to my son. He is enjoying it immensely. It is running fine, just over 12k miles now, and needs a new set of tires already. :D

    On topic, has Mumbai recovered from the recent record flooding?

    That's great to hear!
    I just hit 14k dot. New set of tires at 12k means you guys are driving it the way it should be driven!
    Cheers man.

    LOL. It is hard to resist the temptation, and you would know exactly what I mean. The summer tires are wearing fast, despite using a separate set for the winter. Post some snaps of your car in the correct topic, lest somebody's undergarments get bunched up. :D

    Baaaack on topic, what is the annual rate of growth for Mumbai?
