Taxis, Mahalaxmi and Gandhi

As I gazed out the window over the waters of Goa ignoring the jerky brake technique of my driver – trying to find some semblance of my inner flow I lost at exactly 11:11 am this morning and not get whiplash – I realized something. Mumbai has no cows. And that is what is wrong … Read more

SIM Cards, Colonial Architecture and Cuisine

I will never criticize someone who is cartographically of directionally challenged again. Mumbai put me in my place, or out of place, more than once today. Actually like four or five times.

Krishna, Akbar a Sari and Sauvignon Blanc

Bright eyed I jumped out of bed to get ready for my ride to Agra. I then spent an hour trying to get into my orange sari and not so bright eyed anymore – rather frustrated now- I gave up and put on my brown shalwar kameez and ordered breakfast. At 9 am sharp I … Read more
