Jai Mata Di

June 26, 2011.

Descended from among  the rain clouds into the humid embrace of Delhi. And onto dusty Noida.

Since then...

Crossed quite a few meditating holy cows on the streets, dabbled in couple of colour-festivals; appreciated autumn and spring, and of course the Himalayan winter.. and er.. summer too. Ditched the long journeys for more  wider and wilder wanderings;  learned  to drive wrong side in 6 lane highways .. and throw expletives at the near miss collisions;  like fish to water, took to panneer. (fish??  ये क्या है ? );  met the Lodhis, Tuqlaqs, Khans;  conversed with the unmarked sepoys from across the centuries ; ate  paranthas and kababs  tinged with history; inhaled the dust and greed  of the sin cities ; cruised the green lined tarmacs ; dug deep into the graveyards of time;  climbed the rocky forts stretching from infinity to infinity; lost a few friends... and lot more hair; made new friends.. and .. that's it.

Still struggling with  the 'hain's and 'hoon's,  at the bottom of the unfathomable Hindi curve.
