Publication: Taxi Times,
The legendary black-and-yellow cabs, locally known as the ‘Kaali Peeli’ have been around for more than one hundred years in Mumbai. While we can still see the roads swarmed with these, the pride of the Kaali-Peeli has now been reduced to a lot of once-upon-a-time stories. They ruled the roads, lanes and bylanes of Mumbai once but are being replaced rather steadily by an unhindered surge of private cabs. But of course, as Amitabh Bachchan put in a film called ‘Cheeni Kum’, saying ‘cab’ is not as much fun as saying ‘taxi’ is.
