Ramblings-Rave & Rant


The curious incident of the dogs

Every morning, I drive for 6 km from home to office. Mumbai’s population is 20 million(2001 census). It is spread over 468 sq. km. The population density is estimated to be about 29,000 persons per square kilomete. This morning, I counted 61 dogs on my way to office..this roughly translates to half-a-dog every square km. The ratio of homo sapiens to a dog is 58000. Dogs sure have a better life in Mumbai!
