"Though children here no longer grow up listening to underworld tales, they somehow imbibe daring qualities peculiar to Mumbai-9, the pin-code now synonymous with the neighbourhood. We are known to respect our women.
Women can walk down the streets of Dongri at 2am and no one will dare touch them. That’s something we do not tolerate,”

"I can walk around Pydhonie wearing 100 tolas of gold at 2am and I know that I’ll be perfectly safe. If one man touches me, 10 others will pounce on him,"
 

"You can never go hungry in this area, as eateries are open till 4am,"

Industrial Internet?

Big Data?

Internet of Things?

Analytic?

Machine to machine communication?

Tool Talk?

Real time analytic?

Or how else you explain that a huge Boeing 777 going missing from the face of earth?

Either technology has failed us or it’s a part of some plan?

Conspiracy theories? May be.
