Rains have been alluding Mumbai for a long time, 7th June onwards has been the period for monsoon to break in but this year’s extended, summer has been very tough, during this dry monsoon, it rained only through eyes of farmers. My brother Sohail Khan has made a film on problems of farmers. His “KISAN” is a dramatic entertainer with strong social message. The forces of bazaar want farmers to sell their land for industrialization. The entire conspiracy is so carefully hatched that brothers are divided so that they sell the land. Its new face of slavery. However rains lend mystique beauty to Mumbai. Sea rises to salute rain soaked Mumbai. Monsoon is added tourist attraction to the city.It would be an experience to drive on newly inaugurated sea link during rains. Marine Drive – the queen’s necklace becomes divinely beautiful during this season. The other side of monsoon is rather troublesome for the poor people whose homes are flooded. Daily wages earners go without food. Shoe shine boys go out of job.Memories of 26/7 are deeply itched in the psyche of Mumbai. This year they have predicted wave rising to dangerous height on 24th July 09. I am sure that the spirit of Mumbai rises above all calamities man made or created by nature.The long term solution to most of our problems is planting of trees in huge numbers.
