Global WarNing

A shade of Mama Nature or her expression of fury?! In her tongue she warns... "Stop messing with me." Fireworks and roaring thunder, winds and whipping rain; two weeks into October, the season of harvest. Mutiny and mayhem of life, property and food. But monsoon isn't ready to take its leave just yet. Mumbai hasn't... Continue Reading →

Eid Milad-un-Nabi Mubarak

Eid Mubarak to all our dear Muslim friends... Yesterday was Eid Milad-un-Nabi, also the night of Sharad Poornima. What a beautiful coincidence! To be honest, I had never heard of this Eid until yesterday. Until I witnessed this... hundreds and hundreds of people on trucks, in beautifully decorated autos, on bikes, pedestrians waving the Islamic... Continue Reading →

Vasudev

Who the devil is singing this loud! Are they praying for themselves or the whole complex?', I snapped at the sound that entered my house cutting through the sound-proof French windows to ruffle my quite morning. I rushed out to find the source so I could rain more curses on whoever that was. As I... Continue Reading →

Powai Sarvajanin Durgotsav

Heart filled with anticipation, we manoeuvre towards the entrance. Cars jostle for parking space, dhoti-clad men and alluring women draped in Devdas-style sarees sashay gracefully in and out, halogens radiating their perfectly decorated faces. It's the ninth and last night of Navratri, the night before Dussehra and my last chance to experience the much revered Sarvajanik Durgotsav - Public Celebration... Continue Reading →

Sbarro, R-City Mall, Ghatkopar West

Sbarro was just another pizzta (that's my version of pizza+pasta) haunt for me, until I got a peek of it in one of the daily sitcoms. Intrigued and a bit of RnD later, I learnt that it's a franchise of the quick-service Italian food joint Sbarro, NYC. Here, in Mumbai, Sbarro is one of the crowded joints on the...
