MUMBAI LESSONS - 4

Q: How do you make yourself feel terribly out of place at a rock concert attended almost wholly by dopey schoolkids with Opeth tee shirts?

A: Come straight from work, with a huge laptop bag and crummy formals.

Moral of the story: When you know you're going to attend a rock show in the evening, carry a change of clothes in the aforementioned huge laptop bag. Headbaning in a Peter England and Raymonds is not exactly becoming.

MUMBAI LESSONS - 3

02:53 PM: Hey, that sounds like Sabbath! There's someone in this building who likes Sabbath! (goes near window). Hmm, guess I was just hearing things.

02:56 PM: Hey hey that is definitely Led Zeppelin! Who's playing... Oh well I must be imagining it.

03:05 PM: Surely, that's Metallica! Those rhythms, the drumming, the bass... Ah crap, why does the music keep stopping?

03:25 PM: Wow, he's playing guitar and it sounds AMAZING! Superb riffs! Maybe I could form a band with him and... It's coming out of this window... Oh...

It's construction machinery.

Moral of the story : Maybe going back to Boyzone and 'NSync once in a while is not all that bad an idea...

MUMBAI LESSONS - 1

Q: Why did our hero travel from Andheri to Fort today?
A: To buy a couple of Duracell batteries and a Thums-Up.

Moral of the story: Before traversing half the city to get your repaired canera back, call the goddamn store to see if they will be open. :/

MORE THAN JUST A SHITTERY

Who said a loo doesn't inspire poetry in even the most stoic of us? This is my going away present to the amazing throne on the right wing of the Amaltas first floor.
