Without a return ticket

After a whole 1 year, I purchased another one-way ticket. The date: August 7th, 2011. Whereto? To peace, I hope. Okay, I wish.

A lot of people don't like that city. It has gali's in the name of main roads, and instead of trees, it is a concrete jungle.

But, that city has something that none of the other cities that I have come across has- A spirit. A pulse. And to feel that pulse of the city, you have to let go.
Go and sit at the nariman point and look out at the sea.. and look at the world pass by you.. and surprisingly you find peace in midst of all the hoo hoopla!

That is Bombay, meri Jaan!

@ sakshi
I haven't felt the 2nd part of ur comment, about mumbai n that might be the reason I don't like the city much ... But I would love to feel that Bombay ...
@ Anon!
I was born in Bombay, I grew up calling it Bombay, I still call it Bombay and I will do so to my very last breath!
Any problems with that?
We are all citizens of a free country aren't we?

@ All,
I don't like Bombay because it's crowded, messy and the air is horrible. However, I do get Sakshi's point that there are locales where there's a certain peace amidst all the madness.
So bottom line, I really do not like cities and metros, just because of the above stated reasons.
That being said, Bombay will always hold a close place in my heart!
Philadelphia is catching up to Bombay as my favourite city and may soon cross it- it's a city without the crowds!

UPDATE (August 22, 2007) : Just found out that our worst thoughts have come true. Abhishek Singh, referred to the article below, is indeed the one we'd known as "Scientist" in our college. Just came across this article on Tribune India. There is also a photo published alongside.

And while contemplating what to really write, the world just change.

The Indian/Modi Government decided that the cash in your pocket is useless, and worthless, and that for the next 50 odd days, there will be major hiccups, and what not while running your households. Minor expenses such as vegetables (from the thela wala vendors), will become a task, as you search for change under the mattresses and the sofas!

While, Shayon disagrees with me, there will be major ripple effects that our maglomaniac PM forgot to take into consideration. Though, I must appluad him for taking this bold step.

And, while, we were reeling under the shock of our worthless money, a bankrupt, misygyonist, racist, tax evader, capitalist maglomaniac won the elections in the most powerful country in the World! He did Trump us all.

And amongst all of this, do you all even remember what were you guys upto on July 11, 2013, when the last post went up.
