Kindredsouls  |Conversations b/w two friends across continents | He prefers espresso in Delhi; she gulps down chai ☕️ in London | 🌎 🛫

Dear P, Yesterday, when I woke up, there was shaft of sunlight coming through the window. Quickly got up, and peeked outside to catch the auburn leaves dancing in the breeze under the autumnal sunshine. I couldn’t wait to step out of the house 🏠 .
.
Today I’d rather be in, its back to being rainy, wet and what not. Thanks for sparing one day of the weekend, dearest London! I shall return soon to get my share of sunshine and rain.
.

Love, I

{Postcard from Amsterdam}
Dear P, The trip to Amsterdam last weekend felt like a dream. Met a friend after a year. We took turns to exchange stories. Ambled around the city, taking breaks at canals and parks. Laughed our hearts out and drank umpteen cups of chai lattes & lattes . .
.
Well, caffeine was necessary as the two of us were sleep deprived for the most part. .
.
But things went down south soon enough. Still, retrospectively, Amsterdam, you were a dream my darling! ..
Will share more over the next few posts.
Tada!

Dear I,
Here is carrying on with the surreal image series! I was sitting in a cafe that overlooks the Kathmandu city. I reckon I was in a fairly good mood. The weather was so good that I wanted to jump out the window and paraglide into the city. On a different note, congrats on crossing the 500 post mark. What a feat! We, you in particular, have shown tremendous consistency. You, my friend, have really grown as a photographer and storyteller. So proud of you!
Love, P.

Dear I,
Food pictures are never my forte, but I accept your challenge. Here is a picture of dal bhat, the staple food of Nepal. It is served as part of a thali set. Nepalese claim this is what drives them. I saw t-shirts in Kathmandu’s busy Thamel market with slogans such as “DAL BHAT POWER, 24 HOUR.” Dal (soup made from black lentil or beans), curry, vegetables, pickle and curd are served in beautiful metal bowls. Exactly the same as in India, the dishes are pored on to the plate and eaten together with rice. In terms of popularity, momo, a dish native to Tibet, was a close second.
Love, P.

{Vicariously in Mumbai}
Dear P, We complete 500 days of summer...(autumn, winter, spring et al) with the 500th post. I couldn’t let you take this. So here it is, a look at the Gateway of India from Taj, Mumbai. I felt the urge to put a filter to change the colour of that water, but didn’t do it eventually.
.
.
PS: At 500, We re doing brilliantly well, we have more posts than the people we follow or get followed by! What a success story 😅 .
.

Love, I

{Vicariously in Mumbai, India}
Dear P,
I am living vicariously through a loved one these days. This involves sitting in my pajamas here in London, not going through the hassle of taking flights or depriving myself of sleep yet getting to see Mumbai. Here are some pics from the famous Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.
.
My only trouble is: I can’t smell the aroma of food, nor get a sense of its taste when I see it. How far behind is this technology! .
.
Love, I .

Dear P,
Needless to say, every single morsel was demolished 😈This is what weekend looked like: sumptuous food, happy tummies and loads of reading & cleaning.
.
We went to this restaurant @littlekolkatauk that opened a month ago. Plenty of vegetarian options for me, so I was happy. A lot of supper clubs are turning into restaurants after testing the waters in pop ups and supper club gatherings. First it was @thedarjeeljngexpress, which we absolutely love and now this. My recommendation, try the ‘khichuri’, it’s basic, soulful and mild (for the ones who can’t take on the heat!)
.
.
.
I won’t let you off easy P, since you threw me a challenge, here’s one your way. Show me some meal pics from Nepal or anywhere rustic you have been to lately. .
Love, I.

Dear P, This is a throwback to a nearly dystopian London— just a small window of time after a parade when the central streets looked like a wreck. On that, the rickshaw-puller decided to blare out his Arabic tunes full throttle on these then deserted and rubbish-laden lanes.
.
You wanted surreal, I trawled through my pictures and found this little nightmare. Close enough? .
Love, I

Dear I,
I went to a monastery which is away from the crowded city of Kathmandu. It felt like a strangely muted place. People went about their day-to-day lives, quietly. I tried my best not to disturb monks who looked absorbed in their meditation even while walking. I photographed them discreetly, from a distance. What intrigued me the most at the monastery were the children who were training to be monks.
Love, P.
