The blog annkur.com is my personal blog, and having been in Mumbai since childhood I am very much mumbaikar. Such that even MNS cannot refute.
In the last 10 years I have spent over 99.99% of my time in Mumbai. Probably more than Googles Guranteed uptime. (Plz calculate 10yrs – 7 days to get the ratio).
- So the girls I write about are Mumbaikars http://annkur.com/tag/girls/
- The police and Law and order I refer to, is as in Mumbai http://annkur.com/2008/07/maintaining-law-and-order-isnt-easy-or-is-it/
- I watch Movies in Mumbai Multiplexes http://annkur.com/2009/02/zero-1/
