Rude Mumbai

Published in The Asian Age, 28 June, 2006

Sir, I am not surprised that Mumbai has been found to be the rudest city in India. I came to Mumbai three years ago and found that while the people were in general generous and kind, at the same time they lacked “etiquette.” One observed this especially while talking to rickshaw-wallas, bus conductors and even shopkeepers. Most of them use “tu” instead of “aap.” The rudeness of Mumbai is in its “language.”
