Since Monday, the persistent rain in the city has created havoc for Mumbai residents. The constant downpour in the metropolis caused disrupted traffic movement due to waterlogging and other rain-related incidents. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a red alert for Mumbai and several adjoining areas and advised people to not venture into the sea. Amid this, a video of a man chilling on a waterlogged road has created ripples in the digital media.

Initially, Vikrant Joshi posted this video on Facebook with the caption, "Thank you, BMC, for making this man feel Maldives in Malad." The 12-second video shows a resident lying on the waterlogged busy road while vehicles like two-wheelers, buses and cars pass by and splash water on him in Mumbai. However, the man was lying peacefully on the wet road, enjoying the splashed water as vehicles passed him.
