With Ganesh Chaturthi being right around the corner, it’s time for all the devotees to get into the prepping up mode, isn’t it? Whether you bring in the Lord home for 2 days or 11 days, we at TaskMitra know exactly how taxing things can get!

Right from choosing a Ganpati idol until the Visarjan ceremony, there’s a lot of hustle and bustle that one goes through to please the Lord of Wisdom and Prosperity.

But this Ganesh Chaturthi − TaskMitra makes your life a lot simpler, as you can outsource your Tasks (anything you need) in under a minute and receive offers from skilled and verified people to help you complete them at friendly prices.

Here are some of the things you can get done.

  1. Cleaning Services: This is where all the preparations kickstart from..But hey!! When it comes to cleaning, isn’t it a BIG no-no for most of us? Don’t waste your time and energy dusting and mopping. Connect with efficient people who’ll leave your homes spick and span.
  2. Makar/Pandal Decoration: No more hunting for thermocol stands, garlands,ornaments and streamers on the busy and crowded streets of Dadar. How about hiring a Mitra who’ll do the running and pick the prettiest pandal decorations for you. There’s nothing better than someone whatsapping multiple image options for you to pick, while you’re comfortably chilling on your couch, Sounds good huh?!
  3. Car Decorator: Transform your car into a grand chariot for the Lord’s welcome. Find the best car decorators to make an outstanding entrance.
  4. Florist: No need to stroll through Dadar market for the freshest flowers early in the morning. Connect with a florist who’ll pick the most beautiful blooms for your décor.
  5. Pandit for a Puja: Don’t let the scarcity of pandits during this busy week affect your auspicious puja. Make a prior appointment and we’ll make sure nothing hampers your devotional day.
  6. Catering Service: With the many guests pouring in at your home to seek blessings we help you get the right hospitality and serve your guest best. Good food, sweets and prasad, get the the best quality F&B services by connecting with the right caterers.
  7. Photographer: Make your memories for these blessed days special. Look for a photographer that fits in your budget for the occasion.
  8. Rangoli Artist: Beautiful and colourful rangolis add a touch of traditional glam to your entrance. We’ll help you find pro rangoli artists so that you have nothing but the best.
  9. Local Band or DJ: You’re in mood to do the lazim on Nasik dhol or do the bollywood thumkas on the streets… hire local bands or Djs and enjoy the agaman or Visarjan ceremony with great gusto!

12 annoying types of Bombay cabbies that make us want to carpool!

T̶A̶X̶I̶ strike = Carpool!

carpool mumbai

1. The “Mata ka bhakt” cabbie

Pictures of at least five different Gods, Bhajan playing in the background, lemon-chilly and brain-killing agarbatti (incense sticks) that is strong enough to faint the Hulk. You know what we’re talking about, right?

2. The “kachua chap” cabbie

When your cab moves slower than a turtle…Bail Gaadi Alert!!

3. The “Naya in Mumbai” cabbie:

This is a new kid in town who says “Bata dena kaise jaana hai AFTER he says he knows the way”.

4. The “Paan Connoisseur” cabbie:

You’re going to have to speak his language which consists of just mumbles because his mouth is full of paan gak… They hunt for panwadis and take regular pan halts which can be annoying. You might not find a first aid box but you’ll definitely find a pan box in the glove compartment and when he’s done, he can paint the road red while he drives cause the entire world is his spittoon.

5. The “Racer” cabbie:

You better be insured! These guys are far more skilled than the Schumachers & Hamiltons when it comes to swinging and swerving their cabs around Bombay.

6. The “Tharki” cabbie:

Sneaking glances from the rearview mirror every 5 seconds until he realises you know what he was doing.

7. The “Gyaan Giver” cabbie :

He thinks he’s the jack of all trades but really just the master of his taxi.

8. The “Serial Abuser” cabbie:

Whether it’s a cycle a truck or anything in between, come too close and all kinds of abuses fly out of his mouth because he thinks he owns the roads. Need be he is ready to street fight too.

9. The “psychedelic neon lover” cabbie:

Bright red, blue, green LEDs and all other types of blinking lights everywhere. He’s probably driving around in his own 90’s disco.

10. The “trampoline seater” cabbie:

You’ll know it when you feel like you’re sitting on a trampoline.

11. The “OCD” (Obsessive Cab Driver) cabbie:

Won’t allow you to enter from the right side. Wet umbrellas, windcheater, drenched customers, Food, Smoking, etc are a big no no! He has more rules about his cab than our constitution!

12. The “Nay Sayer” cabbie:

These are the ones who do not want to take you nowhere! Whether you want to go 1 km or 100, he is not gonna take you! He’s probably waiting for an Interstellar trip.

We know that Mumbai is a city which is always on the move and with the unexpected Taxi strike in the city today, we want you to keep moving.

We thought of mitigating this problem by bringing in a spirit of collaborative consumption amongst the TaskMitra community. And so we’ve come up with a trending category called #TaxiStrike=CARPOOLING” where it’s easy for you to broadcast your pick up and drop location and connect with someone who will be a true Mitra in your need.
