Looking for Love?

October 26, 2010

Ghar aaya yeh pardesi.....

Time flies, it feels like just yesterday i was sitting with my bags packed to start MBA journey to Brisbane and here again... i am all set to go back. Nostalgia is gradually setting in regarding small nuggets of life here in Australia - those frustrations of living alone, those anxious moments of exams, those Gold Coast trips to the beaches, those AFL and cricket matches at the Gabba, those BBQ parties with friends...there is so much more to explore and so little time left in the end.

However, it's only when you start living away, you realise the real value of small things you inadvertently take granted in life. This time around, I wanna relive the Delhi i grow up watching - the rides in Lutyens Delhi, drive for the aloo paranthas to Murthal, paneer kulchas@Moolchand, lasagne@Big Chills,falluda kulfi@Def-Col, 20rs thali@kakke da dhabba, Aloo ki tikki@Parnthe wal Galii; play the luddo games @Costa, CP; Hukkah@mochas, GK; window shopping in GIP, Noida; the innumerable rounds of Central Park; the divine feel of Bangla Sahib; the calmness of Cathedral church; the silence of Lotus Temple.....phew!!! post-CWG DELHI still has lots to offer :) :)

And yes, always remember...from the rides of City CAT in Brisbane to the Metro rides in Delhi; from Tuesday's cheap Domino pizzas in Brisbane to Thursday's Pino pasta in Delhi; from burning midnight oil for studies in Brisbane to party neon lights of Annabelle's in Delhi; from the rustic shorts in Brisbane to the glittery Sherwani in Delhi...among all these lanes of love and life; there exists an ever internal, the majestic, the incorrigible, the one and only - you know who :D

@Aparna Di

I think that's a result of the globalised world we live in these days...it's always good to be exposed to different cultures, countries and customs!
