Modi Narendra was trying to convince Trump about over 800,000 India citizens have waited some up to 10 years to live in the United States but that's not going to happen. During Trumps visit to India he said India is a sht hole and Trump was right.

Jatt. I'm a mayonnaise and I couldn't agree more. I'm checking this for a friend, but I'll move from the US to Chile soon. Same issues there, Spanish pushes the indigenous out and not there is a huge conflict to get some of their land back.

Mumbai like all of India is a dump like its people are. Everyone worldwide already knows that though. It's rat infested among many other downsides.

To all those mayonnaise people commenting bad things , only if your imperialist colonizing ancestors had the same thought as of you , it would be a better place to live.

As a world traveler I cannot recommend Mumbai or anywhere else in India. Infrastructure is severely lacking undrinkable water very high utility costs and insufficient undependable transportation.A note on safety security is insufficient.

If you give me 1 milion USD to live there for a year i would refuse.
Zwerg on Jun 17, 2020:
someone can explain how a single person can need 364.25USD without rent. looking at these prices it not looks like it could add up that high?

Mumbai is a very good place to live, eat and enjoy life.

Lot of intelligent people study and work in Mumbai.

But many leave for abroad due to corrupt system and reservation policies of this backward country.

Yes; India needs to do away with reservations - no reservations based on religion or on economic status.

Corruption needs to be removed.

Government cannot even take care of the city in rains - just make a good sewage control system.

People should keep their homes and neighbourhoods clean. Come on. Wake yourselves and your neighbours now. Its been more than 60 years.

It’s ridiculous how we brag about the private success of others just because we share the same passport, all the great achievements in tech and industry and we’ve the least attractive country in the world.
Just a few facts:
- we and Pakistan have the cheapest peones in the world, cheaper than Somalia
- tech, rising GDP, ... and still no expat would dare to make a move to India, they would even prefer to go to places like Thailand or Ecuador as it happens indeed
- our labors (and Pakistani even more) go literally everywhere just to escape the country. Hell I met them even in Somalia as labor migrants!
