The city of Bombay has been caught unawares by an unprecedented phenomenon. Since yesterday, the metropolis has been deluged by a colourless liquid falling from the sky. Drops of the liquid were first reported at 3 AM yesterday and were still falling at the time of writing. Such is the volume of the liquid that roads and rail tracks have been submerged, throwing normal life in the city out of gear. Alarmingly, this liquid has a corroding action on roads built using cheap material. As a result, the city has seen road quality deteriorate precipitously as large potholes have surfaced throughout the city.
Caught unawares by this extraordinary phenomenon, the authorities remained silent for most of yesterday. Sources tell us that the liquid was first sent for testing by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation and was found to be Dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO). A statement was released later on that the liquid was mostly harmless to humans, however studies were still ongoing.

This did little to help the city though as panic stricken residents, alarmed by this “rain” of DHMO fled for home, throwing the city into chaos.
The BMC requested for calm and advised citizens to stay at home. “This is an unprecedented situation and we appeal to the people of Bombay to help us understand what the fuck is going on,” said the Mayor whose name no one seemed to know. “We are doing our best against the DHMO deluge, but given that this is the first time it’s ever happened, our hands are tied. We assure the city that we are doing all we can to battle this and promise to prepare the city in case it ever occurs again.”
