These are exciting times. As I type this, I’m sitting on a couch amidst half-filled suitcases and Fedex boxes. Yes, the India stint is nearly over and I’ll be back in London very soon. I’m saying goodbyes, getting just a touch emotional, and also slowly but steadily getting better
. Thank you, for all your good wishes in the comments and through email! I was really touched.As you can imagine, amidst all this happening, posting here will be a bit slow (but only for a week or so more, I promise you!). But then here comes some good news to counter that:You can now also follow my work on an all-new blog called Metrotwin Mumbai
on which I was invited to be a Contributing Editor. It’s no secret that I’m in love with London, but Mumbai too, is one of the cities that holds a special place in my heart (although I still like to call it by its old colonial name ‘Bombay’). And that is why I jumped at this. Launched by British Airways
just last week, it is based on the innovative concept of “twinning
” London and Mumbai – two of the most vibrant and exciting cities on the planet, and which, despite being a world apart, have a lot in common! What’s that, you ask? Go read the blog
and find out for yourself. You can read all my posts there on one page by clicking on this link
Don’t go away just yet! Urban Legends is going to be back with lots of untold stories from India and with the regular programming from London, in a week’s time. Meanwhile, I’ll leave you with some pictures from these last three months in India that never made it to this blog (and probably won’t make an appearance in the stories yet to be told) but I like them anyway and I hope you will, too.
I know these pictures are all very disconnected – they don’t weave a web like those spiders up there. But I like the pictures and they all have little anecdotes if not full stories linked to them. Would love to tell you those sometime… do tell me if you’d like to know.
