When you talk about Mumbai weather, winter is definitely not a season that comes to mind. It has to be monsoon, which just doesn’t seem to ever end in the city. Okay, that maybe exaggeration but Mumbai is not exactly blessed with winter like Dilliwalas. All the city experiences is a few weeks, when nights and early mornings feel slightly cold and people are not sweating through the day.

Comedian and Mumbaikar Rohan Joshi felt a slight dip in the temperature and congratulated Mumbaikars on the arrival of what he calls ‘winters’. “Nothing is wet, it’s slightly cool early in the mornings and also whenever one is in the shade. Congratulations Mumbai, “winter” is here,” he tweeted (we’re not sure of the GOT reference, but sure!). But he also knows that THIS cannot exactly be called winters, a season that has started to hit parts of north India. “Bombay needs a new, unique name for the final season of the year because it isn’t really winter. If winter is a dump, what we get is a far,” he tweeted again.

He himself came up with a few names. “Winterlet, Winterish, Diet Garmi, Chhota Summer #AlternativeBombayWinterNames” he wrote and gave birth to the hashtag. In no time, people suggested new names winters in Mumbai and some of them are hilarious.
