Its still the same :)

February 22, 2008 § 2 Comments

The heat & humidity is the same…

The Vada Pav tastes the same…

The Bus Conductor still scowls at a 50 rupee note…

The rickshaw-wallahs still ply in the dead of the night…

The fast train still takes 40 minutes to reach Vasai from Andheri….

Vasai still is as easy going as it was when I left…and the College stands..still…

The FM stations still blare out nonsense by the dozen…how I missed them 😀 (arre o deva, bohla na devi prasad naiee hai, woh apni bhiwi ko leke manoranjan shopping ko gaya…wahaan saaree, kurta, dress material sab milta hai…. 😛 )

I had gone to Mumbai last weekend. Its a city I’ve called home for the past 22 years. I now live in Hyderabad. Its been around 5 months since I left Mumbai…and returning back, even for a brief period, was relief. One always believes that things change when you’re not around. Thankfully, it wasn’t so here. Its all still the same. Much to my immense pleasure.

ps : forgot to add one more thing, Mumbai Mirror, I don’t think their style of reporting will ever change…I don’t know if I should be glad for it or not 😛 Here’s a sample

    Kinda relieved na, that somethings DONT change..no matter how much they get on ur nerves (ex: the stupid Radio Ad ! or Himesh music 😛 )

    I truly believe once u call Mumbai home …… nothing else, not even Hyderabadi Biryani (hope u enjoyed it) can beat the feeling!!

    So u back to doing ballet??

    ya, i enjoyed the biryani…for a whole week…then sorta grew bored of it…relieved toh i am, but i realise that things will change when i am not around to change alongwith them…its just a matter of time really…

    just thinking of ballet brings weird images to my head…eeks
