The Mumbai chapter

Well, the bye byes have started.. all of a sudden actually.. it was about 2.5 mths ago that i came to know that we would be going to Bangalore.. and we were like.. "2.5 mths!!!!!!!!! So much time we have!!!!!!!!!!!" etc etc...

But now suddenly time is running out here in Bombay.. we still have so many places to go , so many people to meet!!!!!! But i guess its not happening.. we have finally booked our tickets to Bangalore.. for saturday.. such an air of finality to it.. till now i was quite relaxed as i felt there is so much time.. but now we have only 3 more days to go !!

Last weekend met up with my husband's colleagues.. was still ok... went out for many lunches with my colleagues.. had a party at my place on Thursday, another party at a colleague's place on friday... met another old friend of mine for breakfast on saturday.. went to marine drive.. took lots of pictures.. my husband is carrying his camera these days to work.. he is clicking all kinds of snaps of the city!! Went to Madras cafe on sunday, clicked pictures with the owner... went to starcity and caught Bachna Ae Haseeno (the first time we watched a movie post marriage was here .. though this time i saw it with my mom)..

We so wanted to go to Gallops (one of our favourite places).. and i wanted to go to Haji Ali.. never been Matheran, Ganapatiphule and all.. i also wanted to have the noorani chicken biriyani.. wanted to eat a roll at bade miyan, have another heavenly breakfast at mondy's.. so much to do!! Just wish i had more time.. But then i guess everytime it would have been the same!!!! So right now we are trying to cram as much as we can to our day!!

2 great , fantastic , deadly years in Bombay.. wonder what Bangalore will be like!

Its difficult to Bombay. Enjoy yourself at Bglr. And come back and do Vernadah in the Forest at Matheran for an anniversay or something. you guys will love it. And stop to have the prawn Newberg at Gallops on the way.

Oh God, I'm having such a sense of deja vu. I too knew for about a month & a half before I left Bombay that I would be leaving. Tried to do as much as I could during that month & a half - eat at my favorite restaurants (which there were too many of!), watch movies at the theaters I used to frequently go to, do as much Bombay shopping as I could - but the time you have never seems enough to be able to fit everything in! That's the way life goes, I guess. No matter how much you like Bangalore, you'll miss Bombay, I can vouch for that!!

I know i will... there are certain associations, certain memories attached with every spot in the city!!!!! First movie, first date, hang out place with frds etc!!!! Moving into a new city is painful!!

let me share about how I landed up in Bombay. I had come here for a six month training when I joined my first job. Then I returned to resume my duties in Calcutta. Then I began to miss Bombay - the freedome, the friends I made - and asked for a transfer back to Bombay 9 yrs back. And have been here since
