Strong reminders of home…

  • The red double decker buses.
  • The cathedrals and buildings in London that remind me of VT and the Fort area
  • Salwar-kameezes on every second woman here. (Mostly Pakistani.)
  • Hindi and Urdu spoken on the street. Occasional snatches of Tamil and amchi Marathi.
  • The plethora of curry and tandoori restaurants. (No pani-puri on the street, though.)
  • The insecure swagger of South Asian men, full of bravado and nothing else.
  • The sudden appearance of kurti’s on women everywhere as fashionable ‘summer wear’
  • The more-than-occasional-all-year-round blustery rain.
