Asha Bhosle, who recently returned to Mumbai from a short vacation, got nostalgic on Twitter.

'Always enjoyed watching a city wake up. Mumbai is a late riser but the energy in this city is commendable. In the 50's I used to live in Borivali. Used to catch early morning local & go to work. It was fun talking to commuters,' she tweeted.

'Today's youth may not know that there were trams in Mumbai. I used to commute in trains & trams before I could afford a car,' she added.

'I got paid Rs100 for my first song. My husband & I celebrated with roadside batatavada. Mumbai is the city of dreams. Some dreams come true,' she added.
