That Sunset in Lonavla…..
We settled in New Delhi, India post wedding while my parents continued to stay in Mumbai. For me visiting my parents has always been an overwhelming experience. (Anyways In India, a girl’s visit to her parents home after marriage is more of a ceremonial event).
I’m emotionally extremely attached to ma & pa, after all have been sharing every little event and issues with them since childhood & they have been such staunch supporters throughout. I remember how I used to sob when I first started staying at the hostel.
This story is from those days when I had a small vacation in Mumbai after my wedding. I have stayed in Mumbai for over 8 years; I could never develop fondness for the city as it’s over crowded and rough on eyes, I mean everywhere you go, you will only find people, chawls, filth barring few areas (remember the movie – Slumdog Millionaire!!!) .
This was really a brief visit & hence we had to zero in on a location that had to be covered within a day. After extremely involving discussion spanning over at least an hour we decided to go for a long drive to Lonavla.
Lonavla is insanely popular hill-station on the Mumbai-Pune expressway.
