You curse the traffic, snub hawkers, bear the local cabbie, dodge pedestrians, spend more hrs traveling than at home, pay toll to enter the city, wade through knee high water, battle for parking everywhere, have had atleast one encounter with the traffic police (albeit you worked you’re way out of it). Despite all this, you know with all your heart there isn’t a better city to live in. If all this & more applies to you, then my dear friend you are bitten by the bug I like to call “MUMBAI”
If you eat, sleep, breathe Mumbai, then you deserve to be called a true-blue ‘Mumbaikar’. And, in order to celebrate all things that characterize ‘Mumbai’, Dubai based digital advertising agency ‘Flip Media’ launched the website “www.mumbaikar.com”. The idea was to encourage people to voice out opinions, suggestions and share experiences. Another USP is that Mumbaikar.com quite literally puts you on the map of Mumbai, as all their data is geotaged.
The site is bliss for Mumbaites & people who would like to get acquainted with the city. It gives extensive data on places, events, incidents, happenings & is a one-stop shop for all you want to know about the city. Since its launch around 2 yrs back, the site has seen tremendous growth & response. Like Amit who has been working on the portal admits, “Although I was born & brought up in Mumbai, I hardly knew the city. Working with Mumbaikar.com has given me good exposure and there is always something new that I come across. I am sure no-one can say “I know Mumbai in & out”.
True that! Being a guest blogger myself, I can vouch that the site helps create awareness and surprises you by how little you know about the place you call home. So don’t wait further, join Mumbaikar.com today.
Like the site’s mantra goes “It's all about people, place and things that matters to you”.
And for the fun of it, you are a Mumbaikar when (my random 5)-
