Fruit Flies Like Banana

A trip it was and what a trip it was.

India was one revelation after another. No, I don't mean all those fancy malls in Bombay or the new money or the 400-dollar cellphones in people's hands. These were revelations - mostly minor ones - of a personal kind. Like how travel is so much more fun after the camcorder breaks down. Or that after being blogging-free for more than 3 weeks, it just loses some of its, uh, sheen. I mean, what exactly are we doing here? (All right, no more meta-blogging. It's just not cool.) Or that being in a boat in a river with 5 crocodiles floating around you is exciting for exactly six seconds. (After which time a question exploded in everyone's minds: do crocodiles attack singly or do they attack in groups?)

Ah, there's just too much to write about in one post. But as we all know, that is really another way of saying I don't quite know what to write, so let's do this another time, shall we?

TR: Awwww. Now weren't we hatching some plans involving egg-nog in Dec/Jan?

K: I remember reading something about a Sufi festival in Bombay - I was pretty sure if anyone on my blogroll would attend it, it would be you :) So, didja?

Singly. Crocs aren't group animals.

I hope you don't think of the malls as something bad. What new money? They switch to plastic and no one thinks to tell me?

Anang: Nah, I am not a "malls are killing Indian culture" kind of a guy.

And plastic is the new money? I was talking about that pink-colored thousand-rupee note!
