This year's monsoon in Mumbai not just brought relief from dry and sultry weather but also brought cheer and positivity for people who have been locked within their homes for the past three months due to Coronavirus outbreak. Unlike every year when people get stranded due to water-logging in several parts of the city or get stuck due to cancellation of local trains and massive traffic congestion, this year people were seen enjoying the rains with their family in nearby parks, open grounds and seashore.
