Saab, Delhi se aye ho kya?

Living in the city other than your native, is totally amazing experience. One should try once in a lifetime to live in different city, out of the comfort zone. For me Living in Mumbai is not that tough, it depends on what decisions you take, whether it is choosing a place to stay, or choosing a mode of transport from office to home. I generally prefer Auto rather than bus, it saves time and energy. If Auto is not available, I prefer taxi rather than waiting for Auto. So, it all depends on how you manage little things in life. But yes, it is tough to live away from your family. I miss the tasty home made food.

So, on that other day, I was going towards metro station. I asked the banana seller how much for a dozen. It was some 30 bucks for a dozen. I chose to have 4 bananas for Rs. 10, and started eating there. While I was eating, I asked him don’t you keep Masaala? (a mixture of salt and spices). First he looked at me totally surprised like I asked his kidney, then he asked “Saab, Delhi se aaye ho kya?”. Me without being offended of being a Delhiite asked: “Haan, kyu masaala kya sirf delhi wale hi khaate hein?
Aur kya saab, yahan agar Masaala laga ke bechunga, to mujhe maarenge aur

Hmm, then I concluded, it is like selling Milk with mixing water in it. But anyways, I completed my last banana, and went off.

Mumbai or Bombay?

So, finally I'm in Bombay. I still call it Bombay, it reminds me the old time when I was so attracted to this city. Whenever I heard about this city, Indian film industry, tall buildings, city of richest people, it's night life, beaches, created the zest for coming to Bombay, my eagerness and my attraction towards this city was growing since childhood. I used to see it in movies, serials and other media. And finally in 2016 I'm here. Liking to so much, easy life, everything is up to date. I've met good people so far, they are really helpful, soft spoken, and they respect your decisions. I've met number of people while searching for a good accommodation, So many stories for each of the broker :) they are funny enough to mention in blog posts. So, I've decided to share the experience I had with them, not in this post but very often.
