Can’t help falling etc. etc. with you etc. etc

I have moved to Hiranandani, Powai, this Sunday. So far, it’s been only one day, and it’s been supremely good.

A quick list of why my bed, by books, my view from the window feels like a groovy kind of love:

I share a beautiful little house with two other people. There are two comfy, slouchy cane chairs hanging in the living room; there’s also a nice black leather couch on an endless, endless marble floor


A roomy kitchen, two fridges, and a really charming area outside the kitchen to have dinners and breakfasts and afternoon tea in


A reasonably big bath


Twin-beds in the room with a sweet little ledge to sit and read on


A terrace


A garden that offers that the most heavenly bouquet of redolent fragrances at night; that and pretty sights of the moon and clouds…all those traces that went into the writing of ‘She walks in beauty’


A marvellous walk in and around the fountains and garden spotted roads of Hiranandani


A quick distance from the place I worked in earlier – the place that filled my life with such innocent, excellent joy for three whole, nectared years


The most poetic detail of all borrows one of Kazuo Ishigoro’s title - ‘A pale view of the mountains’…from everywhere you look

It’s a beautiful dream…this place.

when/if you go and sit on one of those benches in front of crossword, tell me how you feel thinking that a few years back J and Cy used to spend entire evenings sitting there, watching people pass by, running up and down the path with groceries bags from haiku or d-mart. :)

Wow! Heavenly! When can I come visit? Can I come and crash out sometimes?

Mukta said...

Hi Anumita,

Sure you can come and visit. We don't have an arrangement for another bed, but thats okay. I could sleep on the couch. You may not find my bed comfortable though.

Come some time after work. Whenever, re...u're always welcome!
