Assault on Street Food

As anyone worth their palate will attest, some of the most amazing food in Bombay is the cheap roadside kind that a lot of people shun. Yes it can have sometimes questionable hygeine, sourcing etc, but come on, tell me your mouth dosent water at the thought of a vada pav, sheekh boti or bhel and ganna juice.

However it seems that as per a Supreme Court Directive, cooking on roadside pavements will be banned in the coming days.

Initially only three wards are going to be afftected, but if its a success, then the whole city will be engulfed.

Damn the powers that be. Why cant they come up with a working viable solution instead of just banning stuff.

Areas that are going to be test cases include Abdul Rehman Street, Zhaveri Bazaar, Ardeshir Dadi Street, Lokmanya Tilak Road, Matunga, Mahim Causeway and Bandra.
