Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is eagerly waiting for monsoon to arrive in Mumbai

"The monsoons have reached Kerala and the Lakshdweep islands... This is a good sign... A week later, traditionally, they should be over Mumbai... This is an indicator of a normal monsoon. We survive and depend on this rain phenomena and much of India's produce depends on its performance - the monsoons I mean," the actor posted on his blog.

The 70-year-old actor remembers the joyous moments of monsoons. "For some it is a much waited delight, for Mumbai and indeed the entire Maharashtra, the 'paus' is a great joy... There is a romanticism attached to it - the dark rain threatening clouds, the rain itself, the levelled temperatures, the hot eats and drinks, the special festivities...," he said.

At the same time, the 'Sholay' star also talks about the disruption caused by the heavy rains in the city. "For many that survive on the footpaths and the slun regions of the city is an unwelcome sight. Homes get destroyed and flooded, facilities are lost... Ahh... A woeful sight for the lesser advantaged!!," he added.
