This past weekend went to Poona (new school: Pune) to visit the family, one of my uncles was having his 50th b-day party and managed to meet 95% of my Poona relatives in 1.5 hours, perfect. Having been here for only 1 week, I’ve heard the song “Kajra Re” for the next 6 lifetimes. The song is from the movie Bunty Aur Babli – haven’t seen the movie but i’m sure it follows one of the typical story lines:
1. love story – rich girl and poor guy
2. love story – poor girl and rich girl
3. love story – rich girl and rich guy, but rich guy loves a poor girl
4. love story – poor girl and poor guy, but poor guy loves a rich girl – Welcome to the club.
Came back to Bombay (new school: Mumbai) and went to a coffee/hookah joint at night called Mocha, a hip cafÃ© packed with young Mumbaikars talking on their “mobile” phones and smoking hookah water pipes. Relaxed environment but no Wi-Fi, so in my book this place sucks from an internet connectivity point of view.
