my mother's pooja room always scares me a bit
full of things i do not understand
nor respect enough
(i often forget to take off my slippers)
for her, unquestionable
for me, usually, simply aesthetic pleasure
we both understand how we see it
and peacefully co-exist

handloom exhibits are such fun
lovely green and orange dhurries sold by the kilo!
and pretty little model bicycle silhouettes from the adjacent stall

p.s. good luck to everyone participating in sunday's cyclothon!

two feet

some very persuasive painting folk at kala ghoda
convinced diti and me to ditch our play watching plan
and paint this tshirt
big white plainness is very intimidating
fortunately a passing happy (but so quiet) kiddo, rudra, was happy to help
so we hitched up our skirts
placed feet on tshirt
(all very unladylike, so of course a bombay times photographer just happened to be around to take pictures)
traced around
and covered them with all the colors and things we love
cats, dogs, apples, stars, lotus flowers, and whatnot
feel free to buy it from the stall on the max mueller pavement
though we'll understand if you don't

if you're visiting delhi in the winter
try to remember to carry your toothbrush
or you'll have to sit in a cycle rickshaw and head to the market at 8 am
when the whole city looks like it's been lifted up to the mountains

inexplicably lost one of these slippers at Y's wedding in bhopal
still waiting for prince charming to come around for fittings


we have a wonderfully zigzag relationship
our fights and make-up-over-wines zig and zag quite frantically too

(outside milann's pretty new house with the big canvas world map that reminds you of how sillyfunny it all is)
