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.

Yes, Mumbai it is but the old name comes up when talking amongst friends, while in conversation with a new person, Mumbai is the name that is the pointer..

Btw Mr Anonymous, your name please?

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!

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut)
