Cloud No.9

I am on clound  9.

I like it there. I think I’ll move there permanently!

Evidence suggests, the blog-o-sphere loves me! Just when I was getting used to my very first blog award,a second one came my way! This time it was the result of the generosity of Lakshmi of theyumblog and qtol fame. I suggest you guys go over to visit her food blog. Its a joint venture of Lakshmi and her mum along with a few relatives and has the nicest looking food. If the whole family cooks like this, I wonder how they maintain their weight!! The pics put up on the blog is motivating me to move to Channai!Even for a self-proclaimed non-foodie, resisting food that looks so good, is hard! The other blog maintained by the lady is good as well. Unfortunately, I think she has been neglecting it lately. Its going to wither away into oblivion one day, Lakshmi!! I warn ya! Do something quick! On a more serious note, the posts have been slow there, but what is archeived is pretty darn good.

Talking of clouds, the skies over Mumbai have turned into a canvas of late. With the monsoons approaching, its cloudy off and on.  As if the sun is playing hide and seek with the clouds…now you see it, now you dont. To me the sky looks this huge background painted in a smoothing colour of blue, with the white and grey clouds moving fluidly, forming shapes. Cloud gazing is a joy, I have discovered. Not only is it fun to figure out faces, animals and other shapes in the clounds, it is also very calming to watch the big blue expanse. I am waiting for the rains to arrive now. Cant wait to get out the umbrella and floaters and gorge on pakoras and chai. Rain, coffee and a good book is as close to heaven as it gets.  

PS: Those living in Delhi, I cant believe you guys have rains and we dont!!!
PPS:May be I should move back….um…naaah.. I’ll be patient.. our rains are anyday better than your’s!

    the status of having the largest slum in asia – thank Lord, you/they have that status 😉

  8. Congrats for your award:)
    I enjoy reading these Bombay-Delhi comparisons:) I have lived in both, love both. What I dislike about Delhi is the crime and aggressive public attitude. What I love is the weather from November to Feb. And the gulmohar and amaltas (laburnum) on the road side trees in May.

  9. @IH- both the cities are special in their own way.. i surely miss the greenery of delhi…n the wide roads..and the space in general…but i dont missed getting eve teased at all!:P in that particular context b’bay is sooo much btr!!
