From Goregaon to Ghansoli, from Saki Naka to Santa Cruz, from Bhiwandi to Borivali. No matter how much townies make fun of the suburbs, it will always been home to you. Here are 10 signs that you call the Mumbai suburbs home.

1. This has been your noble steed for as long as you can remember.

You only take taxis if you’re going to the airport.

2. You totally recognise this guy…

…and wave at him every time you pass by Juhu Circle.

3. You have regretfully accepted that for three months of the year…

…you’re just going to have to swim to get places.

4. You cross this bridge mainly for 3 reasons –

  1. To go to Cafe Mondegar/ Leopold
  2. To take the ferry to go to Alibaug
  3. To go to the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival

5. These are your only two bargaining chips when you’re trying to convince friends from town to come to ‘this side’.

And you’ve resigned to the fact that, more often than not, it doesn’t work.

6. You find yourself here after a night of excessive drinking…

…and you probably won’t remember gorging on the greasiest, butter-iest pav bhaji on the planet the next morning.

7. You can pull this circus act off in your sleep.

You have also perfected the act of:

  1. Jumping into/out of a moving train
  2. Standing on one foot in a train
  3. Holding your breath for more than 60 seconds

8. You look out of your window and see this guy…

…just chillin’ out on your building wall. No big deal.

9.  Your idea of a long drive…

…is heading to town at 1am on a Saturday to eat kheema baida roti at Bade Miya and strawberries & cream at Bachelorrs’.

10. And jokes like these don’t seem to bother you at all…
