Some Tips

Bombay, or anywhere else... being prepared, and keeping your wits about you will make all the difference.

  1. Memorise a few phone numbers: Friends, relatives, colleagues - anyone will help most gladly.
  2. Try to plough on, but be reasonable: If you're wading through waist-high water (or more!) for a long time, check with people around if there's an alternate route.
  3. If you find a vehicle, ask around if someone else wants to go with you - even part of the way. The strangest irony is to see thousands walking on roads, while vehicles go by with one occupant.
  4. If you take any medicines, carry atleast an additional day's dose on your person, always.
  5. Carry food, water, money, your phone (in a ziplock bag, if it is raining), medicines (if any). And nothing else. Travel light.
  6. If you're in an unfamiliar city, keep emergency numbers with you.
