This post is dedicated to my best friends in Mumbai,the ones who helped me stay sane despite the fact that I'm miles away from my family and loved ones!


Zoobi: My first friend in the city, who instantly made me feel at home in the area I had found my new home in! Her infectious enthusiasm and energy have turned around quite a few terrible days of homesickness!! In one and half years she has grown from a fiesty firecracker of a puppy to a fine young lady, surprising me and making me fall in love with her all over again!!

Lalu: My boisterous possessive local boyfriend! Whenever we met, he demanded undivided attention, finding his way onto my lap and ensuring that he was all I saw! And what could I do other than feebly accept defeat! I was a sucker for those big brown eyes!!

Lalu after a hearty meal!!

Captain Jack Sparrow: My dear one eyed darling! He would wait patiently for my possessive Lalu to get distracted and make his move! Come for a quick hug and a kiss, fill my heart with joy and walk away! I love him more for his subtlety and poise!

Caramel: The little fluffy little creature who warmed me towards my new house after the shift! In just two days we developed a bond so strong, we would run towards each other like estranged lovers everyday for a warm embrace! I hear that these days she is chilling in a plush Colaba home! What can I say, u deserve it darling!!

Bujji: I don't know if she has a name, but that's what I call her and that's what she is! A tiny little jack in the box! She adores me and I adore her even more! On days when I have felt like i have no loved ones in this crazy city she has laid down at my feet, not letting me go home, smothered me with love, knowing that's exactly what I need!!

 This is a heartfelt thanks to each one of you and I hope that I will always be there if u guys ever need me!
