My family has never owned a car, & for the longest time it hasn’t bothered me much. Mumbai is a well connected city with a lot of public transport options. But lately I’ve begun to really feel the need for one, for a variety of reasons. Firstly, my mom has taught me to be independent in every way & having to depend on cabs can be a real hassle especially when public transport is on strike. Plus, I miss out on the pleasure of taking long drives through the city, especially late at night or early morning, when the roads are empty, Mumbai looks so much more beautiful then!
Then with your own vehicle comes the potential for spontaneous weekend getaways too, you can throw in your luggage, pile up & go without a second thought. And finally, my family has also grown in the last year, we now have cats in our life & we’d love to explore pet friendly locations but of course you can travel with your own pets in flights or buses, hence the need for our own vehicle.
