Ammu is Des-bound

Dilli Diaries - Day Zero

It's time to go home...

It's time for a little romance with the wind over the Aravalis,
The same questions ("Do you cook there?"; "Do you have friends? Are they Indians?") ,

The same once-overs ("You've become so dark/fair"; "You've lost/gained so much weight") ,
Feeling the familiar rush of patriotism as I cruise down Rajpath and Shantipath,
Ducking behind my mother as she expertly plays the bargain game in Janpath,
Wrapping myself in a shawl on a foggy winter morning, sipping coffee and chatting with dad,
Eating peanuts on the terrace on a sunny Sunday afternoon in the winter,
All this; while my stomach transforms into a bottomless pit as I gorge on Idlis - Bathure Chole - Sambaar - Koottu - Kachoris - Gaajar ka halwa - Tharatipaal - Filter coffee - Nirula's Hot Chocolate Fuge - Adai - ... ,

And just like that; for a few beatific days; my soul is at peace.


As Ozzy would say - "Mama I'm coming home!"

Gotta love Today's Horoscope

I love the amNewYork newspaper. Why?
- Perfect for the subway ride to work.
- Good summary of everything I need to know to start the day
- It's Free
- Good horoscopes!

The newspaper is my daily staple now. Now I generally dont believe in horoscopes...but it's hard to not want to believe in something which reads as: -

"Leo (July 23 - Aug 22): A wonderful feeling gets more wonderful when it's shared. Falling in love now is easy, and practically required."

Will do!! ;-)

Cheers cheers! And a happy Friday!
