I looked at my shoes; and decided against taking the next step… I instantly regretted my decision of wearing my new Puma shoes instead of beach sandals, but then I never knew I would sneak out to the seaside after dropping Ali to the birthday party!
Sandals or no sandals; today, thanks to my son’s scheduled party invitation at Dolmen, Clifton I got to spend some good time all by myself. Although I wandered a bit with a mental stop watch of 15 mins in the Mall vicinity, the shops and the bustle failed to attract me. I paced quickly out of the lustrous world of the mall and went straight towards the real, pleasure of the sea-view.
The crowd there and their idea of fun as usual was so whole and real. Everybody; containing children, families, couples and friends just a few meters ahead of me seemed to wholeheartedly enjoy every moment spent there. With small vendors selling delicious chaats and the famous flamed corn cobs Aka ‘Bhutta’, the seaside was bustling with life.
I knew in normal circumstances I wouldn’t be allowed standing there alone all by myself looking greedily towards the never ending continuous movement of the tides, therefore I made sure my dear driver stood around me while I tried to bribe him with tea and a bhutta
So the two apparently like minded people made a pact with a mouthful of raw burnt corn in the absolutely amazing weather today; to not to reveal our little sneak out secret
So much for the secret !
