RE: A letter

Dear friend,

Thanks for replying back. Deep down, I knew you would. Thats what friends are for, to stand beside you at the testing times. It definitely did loads to me than mere feeling-good. And you see that now I am writing more about my life here.

1. Well I am yet to discover the Bombay you are very fond of, except for the sea mist- which i daily enjoy. Yeah thats the best part of my entire day-sitting around the sea. I am yet to discover watever you mentioned in the letter-the fish stink in Colaba, Muchhad’s paan,the tonga ride which you loved, strawberries and cream at “Batchelors”(though I am not at all a strawberry lover)..

2. Yeah I have downloaded the movie Big Fish. I will definitely watch it and tell you my reviews after I have watched it in the next letter.

3. I did not understand why you quoted Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City)at the end of your letter. "I'm looking for love," gushes Carrie, "real love, ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love. And I don't think that love is here in this expensive suite in this lovely hotel in Paris." You always did that in your previous letters, is it like your permanent signature??

4. You know last night I drank alone. 2 kingfisher strongs. Played 'chingadi koi bhadke'-kishore kumar in the play-again mode. And slept to it. Also woke up to it!!Living alone is awesome. But sometimes it scares me like what if I suffer a heart-attack, no one around.

5. Ever since I am in Mumbai, my arms must have increased in length. When you hang in local train twice for about 45 minutes, the arm length is gonna increase. And yeah I have one video of our first dwelling in Mumbai. Its one of the most motivational video of the shit we lived in. Next tym u r in Mumbai we can sit and watch it together.

6.Well I will end the letter now. Oh yes, I was going thru some old photographs and I still possess the one where u are twirling in that hippie skirt of yours.
