Any work that is not essential should ideally be postponed to another day by the citizens. (Image Source: Twitter)

    While rains may be playing spoilsport, yet one good thing that has happened is that water scarcity chances for the city have been banished as rains have led to full supply of water in all the seven reservoirs which supply water to Mumbai city. And that applies to a full year's supply. (Image Source: Twitter)
