I have always believed that if you love Mumbai, Mumbai will love you back. If you hate it, it will still love you. For me Mumbai is not just a place it’s a person, very flamboyant, bold but shy. And what makes it the way it is for me? The dotted line that connects you to this alluring place. For me this dotted line is the zillions of dreamers and charmers- the people of Mumbai.
One such man is Chachaji; he stands outside Lower Parel station and makes bhel in a blink of your eyes. His eyes are intriguing and his khaki shirt has a stitched pocket in which he keeps his money. The stitches are very prominent. Whether its early morning or late evening, Chachaji is always there relentlessly making bhel. He told me that he goes home by the last local train at 1.46 am.
|bhelwale chacha jo 1.40 ki last local se ghar jate hai!|
This dotted line extends every time I meet people in Mumbai, and like the place the people too are flamboyant, at times warm but on their toes all the time.
More later, very soon. Have a flamboyant weekend!
