Home Delivery

Us Mumbaikars have to be the most pampered people on earth(not that I am complaining). The extent to which the "home delivery" concept has pervaded the city's lifestyle is unparalleled. You can have any and everything home delivered. Everything is literally a phone call away.

I haven't seen this degree of deliveraciousness(sorry Amit) in any other city. I think it has to do with the fact that Mumbaikars already have such a tough time commuting, that they don't want to step out of the house again until the next day. Where there is a need, there is a shopkeeper. Hence free home delivery of everything from food to groceries to appliances to laundry to even elephants.
