Don't Know What Anyone Sees In Anyone Else...But You :)

I feel vaguely uncomfortable writing about sentiments of the mushy variety in a public domain. It feels so typical of a reality show contestant. But I'm going to write this post anyway, because it has become quite an integral part of my life, and my blog should be in the know. After all, this is where we began.

*****

Situation One - In A Bus

"Y'know what? We really should travel more. Go out for little weekend trips. I'm getting sick of the city."

"You're right. Maharashtra has all these beautiful holiday spots near Bombay. We should go to Janjira Fort at Murud."

"What's the place like?"

"It's a fort on a cliff with a sheer drop to the sea. You remember that song in Bombay where Arvind Swamy was wailing away? That song was shot at Janjira."

"Really? That place is GORGEOUS! I always thought it was somewhere down south."

"And on the way there, the road winds around the cliff so that the sea is visible from there."

"Oh, like in Italy?"

(smiling indulgently) "Yes, like in Italy."

"OOOOH, Y'KNOW WHAT? WE HAVE TO GO TO ITALY!!!"

"Let's get to Murud first."

*****

Situation Two - In A Vegetable Market

"How much for the tomatoes...hey, wait!"

"How much for the tomatoes?"

*Huff Puff* "Mr. Market Research, do you have to know how much the tomatoes cost in every single shop? It's getting late and if we finish this quickly, we'll have more time to sit and talk. Getting cheated out of a few rupees is not a problem, ok?"

"Ok."

(On the way out) "How much for the crabs?"

"SIGH."

*****

"You've stopped drinking lots of water everyday, haven't you?"

(Burning in righteous indignation) "What makes you say so?"

"Well, we no longer have to race through town finding a place for you to pee."

"Oh."

*****

On second thoughts, that was not too bad. Not even as cloying as I'd expected. It's ok to be just a girl sometimes, I suppose.

The Janjira fort is located in the middle of the sea. But i'll still take you to Italy. Someday :)

I want to save money, you want to save time. Two rupees and two seconds respectively. Always told you, match made in heaven.

And hmmm.. i'll save the rest of the mush for my "private" blog. Write you another poem. Maybe :)

Well, Murud Zanzira is an absolutely awesome place. The most enjoyable part ( a personal opinion) is going to the zanzira on a boat. Tad scary but worth the fun :D But when you go there, also do check out Kashid beach and the bird sanctuary which are pretty close to murud

PS: I am dispensing this 'gyaan' assuming that you might not be knowing everything about these places :)

@ doubletake, doublethink

@ nin

hee hee. this post makes me feel all girly and giggly. I think you should finish what you started, namely the mills and boon called aag ka gola.

heh? ok said...

@ new age scheherazade
you know, it's actually quite a good idea. writing a bad book because it's meant to be awful. i think i'll take it up.
