I have completed one week in Mumbai and along with a colleague who is working for the same start-up, have found ourselves a place to stay. It’s almost like a Service Apartment next to the NITIE Campus in the Powai. The good part about staying and working in the Hiranandani area is that you can avoid using the Mumbai Local trains – considered to be as much of a menace as a boon by most people I know!
The picture shown is the crossing bang in front of Galleria Mall – which is basically like the life-support of people living in the Hirandani / Powai area – it is what makes the place completely self-sufficient and independent. You find everything here!
Settling down in Mumbai was not too much of a problem. My friedns at work were very helpful and co-operative. Besides I was lucky to have a cousin sister living very close where I camped for a couple of days initially before I found the place we moved into. Also, Vodafone made it easier. My connection was activated in a day and since I have been a Vodafone loyalist for a couple of years, they even gave me the same last-4-digits that I had earlier. Thanks Vodafone – I’m really happy to be helped! 🙂
