From The City of Joy

(The post was typed on MS Word on Feb 16 however being posted today due to lack of a lot of things, one of which is TIME!)

The Fussy Eater seems to have landed at the right place, it seems.

Last 5 days have been great, work wise. I lost track and was back on track before it was too late. But the stay has been even greater because of the kind of Food. Not that I have developed taste for Bengali Food, but I have loadsa options so I don’t miss dear Delhi. The only thing that I am missing about Food is Cooking it myself! The cook at this guesthouse told us stories how some Punjabi guests made great Rajma Chawal during their stay… pitching us to do the same too…

Had a great dinner Valentine’s night. Tried veg sushi too, though didn’t like it much. Would definitely go for other variations sometime.  Chicken Hakka Noodles is the new staple diet these days. Had a great time with boiled egg sandwiches, cheese balls and coffee the other night (Read 4 AM).

Catching up on some bangla too… words like “tada-tadi” (quickly) and “lebu” (orange fruit) have some funny stories attached to them.

Though I am carrying lots of Mills and Boon Romance, but have hardly had a chance to flip a page.

The FM stations here seem better than the ones in capital. They play all Bangla, Hindi & English! Most Bangla songs that I’ve heard seem to have same tunes as the Hindi ones, so nothing sounds Greek and I start humming the Hindi song. :D

Got this PJ SMS this morning from A:

Handle this PJ…

Who is the leader of ducks?

Ans.: Frog


Because, he is MainDuck!!!

You know what that means?

To me it means, the Frog back home is waiting to be kissed ;)

Homesick but Hopeful,

:(( I missed Delhi a lot during my latest office trip and most important reason was the fooding habits in Mumbai.

My Valentine's Day and night both were awesome. Was at India Gate in evening, had awesome dinner and awake upto 6 next morning. :))

Courtesy my room-mate, I can understand Bangla a bit. Also, during the Mumbai trip ppl were amazed by my fluent Hindi. :))

Couldn't get any chance to tune-into FM during my trip.

Now +1 point to me, I'm miles away from the 'Homesickness' thing.

I hope you'll finish your work(trip) asap and get back to Dilli soon.

Stop teasing me with your +1...

trying to get back home before holi...but might have to come back again :(

get back before Holi. Holi without family and loved ones is meaningless.

The only day when I miss my family and friends.
