We had a discussion during lunch and a couple of us concluded that India’s economy and inflation can be determined by a very simple test. Whats the price of vada pav in Mumbai? As the prices of vada pav go up, the Indian inflation goes up. (well the prices havent come down, so we havent really seen that effect eh?) Vada pav was 3 rs in kisi zamana, and now its 10 Rs. In the next 5 years we forecast the vada pav to cost at least Rs.20 (thats the base rate) and then we test if our theory is correct or not? After 5 years come and check the inflation rate, okay?
There is a collegue who shares sweets at work. How nice can someone get? If I had got that kopra pak, I would have gobbled all four pieces by myself.
Arey, even I dont want to share, but my mom asks me if I gave you (RM) a piece,and I cant lie to her eh? Wish you had taken the day off 😉
There is a major arguement during lunch on the definition of a local train. You know, within city, within 100 kms of city, yaada yaada..
I solve the problem
The one with the loos are NOT local trains, all without the loos are local trains? Any one against this definition?

The bhindi fry I make for R for her lunch box is a big hit in office. I didnt make it during R’s vacations since she didnt have to take dabba.

I am missing the R bhindi. I so want to eat it..my mom cant make it as nice as you..
Ahem! I should tell RD this one 🙂
Mr. Raj Babber says you can get a meal in Mumbai for Rs. 12. We are discussing this at work. Yaa, says one of the guys, my grandfather used to get a complete meal for that much in 1955! Guess, Mr. Babber needs to use the calender more regularly eh?
Mumbai rains and mumbai traffic are likely those lovers they show in movies. Always always together. Barish gira nahi, ke traffic has to come up to embrace the darn rain!
