Updates from Maximum City!


The red buses and the cemented roads are so much entrenched into brand Mumbai. Took this while shifting my place last week.
My mother has been with me for a week, so I was lucky about the neat packing and the moving in, didnt have any problems

The IPL frenzy seems to have got to every one. I see a bunch of people gazing into a shop at Hill Road in Bandra West, where I went for some shopping of basic household implements.

When I saw this painting on a wall, the font reminded of me of the colours painted in Taare Zameen Par. Its a nice getsture by the school to allow their students paint on the wall, rather than commercialising the wall for advertising, or sticking- STICK NO BILLS all over.

Thats my mother watching the Aarushi Talwar murder case on NDTV, as if she were watching a soap opera-totally involved and glued to the television. My mother left last sunday night, so this week, its all about practising how one can make the stomach not-so-empty with the combination of bread, milk and sugar. My mother has suggested quite a few do-it-yourself recipes, but I guess lazy me would still prefer to buy at a hotel. Also to add to my woes, I'd have to wash clothes and fill water, things that I havent been exposed to at my home in Chennai. Mumbai's teaching me quite a few things :-)

By the way, I am leaving on an office trip to Goa, Divar Island tommorow. Should be fun in my 5th visit to this wonderful state in the last 27 months.
