Mumbai’s Traffic Is Faster Than Quickest Snail: Andy Mukherjee

An excerpt,

‘Archie, the garden mollusk that won the 1995 World Snail Racing Championship at the Congham Church’s annual fete in Norfolk, U.K., covered a 13-inch circular course in 2 minutes.

That record, which remains unbroken, gave the plodding slug a speed of almost 10 meters per hour.

Cars and taxis in Mumbai, by comparison, are 1,500 times faster. Motorists are now zipping through town at a breakneck speed of 15 kilometers (9 miles) per hour, according to Bombay First, an advocacy group that still uses the city’s old name.’

For the record, the flight from Chennai to mumbai takes about 1.5 hours while it took me about 2.5 hours to travel from Mumbai airport to Mulund.
