I am sure most of you know about the unprecedented torrent in Mumbai that happened recently (and has hopefully stopped by now). Amit Verma has a posting about it that he made right after the rains which gives better insight about the situation there for all the non-mumbaiite visitors here. Read it here.
One of my friends also got stuck in his office close to Dadar. He walked home (close to IITB, in Powai) next morning after the rain stopped. Waded his way through flooded roads from Dadar to Vikroli. Took him 4 hours!!
