This Summer Time

  • is all about laziness
  • About vacations which havent been taken
  • About seeing young boys and girls in the evening taking lazy walks and talking dime a dozen
  • About see young kids cycling really fast on an empty road early in the mornings
  • About seeing a couple of crazy folks like us keeping the chundo in the roof top of a high storey building in the morning and bringing it back in the evening
  • About bright yellow and sparkling green mangoes being sold by the ton on the streets
  • About seeing withered vegetables and leafless trees on the road
  • About gulping down bottles of water in a day.
  • About sneaking in water from the fridge so that the brat doesnt see it and then being discovered immediately by the brat who demands the cold water herself
  • About eating watermelons so that it cools the body despite not liking it much
  • About drinking buttermilk by the gallons and curd rice by the kilo
  • About looking out of decent gola walas in the neighbourhood and not finding any!
  • About wearing cotton cotton and more cotton
  • About eating totapuri keri instant achar after making it every Sunday for oneself
  • About wanting to stay inside a swimming pool only to see its overflowing with human beings
  • About rejoicing how quickly and crisply the clothes dry in the hot sun
  • About lamenting the onset of rainy season in scary Bombay soon
  • About chilling with a cool cold drink in the evenings after work

Summer is definitely here in Bombay!

    Ah, what an apt and very visual description you have painted of summer, albeit with words!
    Summer is her in Delhi too though the frequent brushes with rain has kept the watermelons away so far.
