I had vada pav yesterday.
Drove via Aarey colony and saw the light streaming down the trees and bushes.
Bought back a huge Murmura pack to Chennai.
You guessed right, I was in Mumbai. The city of my childhood, at least a large part of it.
I do not think I will ever stop calling myself a Bombayite. Even now when someone asks me where I am from, I say Mumbai and then explain - came to Chennai a few years back, post marriage. Whom am I kidding! Bombay no longer exists- I should be a Mumbaikar if at all.
I came to Chennai almost 8 yrs ago.
About time I called myself a Chennaiite. And I belong here don't I ? Being a Tamilian at that? Maybe my Chennaisation is not complete.
This Republic Day when Chennai gets metered autos, I think I will also salute that event by calling myself a Chennaiite henceforth.
