Mumbai is one of the greatest cities in the world. That doesn’t mean stupid people don’t live here. Plenty of them do. Today, we have two examples of stupidity from the City.

Two Men Move in with Transgenders After Being Humiliated by Family

You have to hunt for kindness in Mumbai. People who you think will support you don’t, while you get love and warmth from unexpected sources.

The harassment got so much that they moved in with Malwani’s hijra community who welcomed them with open arms.

From idiots in the city to idiots in university, you won’t believe what’s going on in the Nation.

The Pakistani pigeon that was captured by Indian authorities has managed to escape after a constable lifted the cage and the bird just…. flew away.  Weirdly, the bird didn’t care about the fact that it was being held on espionage charges and decided that it won’t respect the law of the land. Funny how animals are like that sometimes.

With all the depressing news coming in from the country, we tried to look out into the World to see if we could find something a little more positive.
