Shot by Ashwin Nagpal, this time-lapse video captures the lifeline of the megalopolis that is the Mumbai local system, also known as the suburban train network. The most reliable mode of transport in Mumbai, the local trains speed by, connecting the north of the city to the south. With an astounding average daily ridership of 7.24 million passengers, you can count on the next local train to arrive within five minutes. Matching the maddening pace of the city and almost always egging it on, the local system is Mumbai’s marvel and, rightly, Mumbai’s soul.
