Walk me Through your City ..

What if I were to take you on a walking tour around my city, or you to take me on a walk of your city, not the entire of it, but a few of your favourite places what would they be……. So I drew this up like a comic strip, to mark the places where we’ll go, what say, wanna join me …

Recognize my first city from the pic?Β I don’t know why I always go back to thinking of Hyderabad as my own city, is exactly what my happiness quotient remarked when I shared this scribble with her. I don’t call it my second home for nothing.. πŸ™‚ and I feel it is my own place, though I haven’t stayed there for long, but long enough.. I know most of its nooks and corners, so much so that a taxi driver once told me, I could easily take up cab service as a business in here, even without the gps πŸ™‚ Shilarya has shared her version of Hyd at her place. I miss Hyd even more reading her post, especially the chats at Gokul, biscuits at Karachi, the Sun at Tank Bund, food @ Fusion 9 Β and a small outlet of Belgium chocolates on Rd #1 Banjara Hills, Golconda Fort….

City comicIn that case, I’ll take you to the Hiranandani Gardens in Powai.. A place I walk to almost every day from campus to feel the air, wading through the shades of the trees, weeding it out through bus-stops, people and vehicles beside the Powai plaza which holds our any time go to restaurant, Mantra! .. I could just tell you let’s get into Haiko and be inside if the day has already begun πŸ˜‰ for it will hot outside during the day, and the supermarket will be cooler πŸ˜€

If you were coming to Bombay, I would take you down this HN street to the market to a store called Lucky where any kind of stationery is made available for anybody who loves craft. With that in hand, we’ll go straight to Krispy Kreme.. they open around 7:30 in the morning, we can sit at a table, feast on a doughnut, drink a cup of their coffee and look out through their glass windows at a rare view of an empty street on a Sunday morning and a few morning breakfastiers.. open our Lucky parcel and make some thing with the papers and pins. In addition, we can see the doughnuts being made through the see through kitchen. I visit this place in the mornings to gaze at that machine moving doughnuts from one rack to the next. If you are still hungry, we can make a stop at Theo, grab a slice of the walnut cake! if you are hungrier, we get into Meluha for a breakfast buffet, among everything on their menu, I love their bacon omelettes.

  1. I never knew you were actually from my city. I’ll take you to my favourite parts- walking through the leafy lanes of Gamdevi, the hurlyburly mess of Bhaji Gulley, the wind blowing through your hair walk down Marine Drive, the quaint museum and gorgeous parkland at Bhau Daji Lad, the bye lanes of Kalbadevi and Pydhonie , the boats bobbing at the Gateway – my romantic old Gothic Mumbai …. All in a day. Are you up for it?

    1. You make my heart skip a beat, woman.. I’d like love to walk with you seeing the city through your eyes.

      One of the best walks I did was the lanes of Nariman Point, around 7 in the morning on a rainy day in June. Was accompanying a friend to the consulate, and boy, I had the time of my life walking the lanes, looking up to the buildings, “the wind blowing through my hair down Marine Drive” πŸ˜€ the breakfast vendors around that corner.. it was a lovely morning, a walk in the drizzle.. and breathing in bombay air πŸ™‚

    I want you to take me to Bandra Festival and enjoy performances at Bandra Fort and Bandstand, To Prithvi theatre so that I could enjoy watching a play again, to roam around Hiranandani Market, Early morning and late night walk at Marine Drive, to relish Dahi and Sev Puris at local vendors, to Khao gali…I can go on like this. I wish I could. I love MUMBAI.
    Thanks for sharing this.
