This is life

The circumstances: Rain from Friday night till Sunday afternoon. A chill sweeping through the region. No sunshine for the past two days. Frustrated with sitting at home, twiddling our thumbs, doing virtually nothing.

The lit-bulb-in-a-speech-bubble-over-the-head idea: Chai, its never tea, and piping hot samosas at a stall in Patparganj, a nearby Colony.

The transport: Nitai's Alto, our transport vehicle of choice and frequent chariot of duty at odd hours.

The passengers: Self, Nitai, driver and sponsor, and Ashish, my bro.

The drive: Serene, uneventful, excrutiatingly slow due to Nitai's whim, accomplished with minimal fuss.

The unforeseen complication: Cannot sit on the chairs outside the stall due to the rain. Must be seated to be able to do justice to the samosas and chai.

The solution: Restaurant-in-a-Car !

And so it was that all three of us sat in the car with my seat back pushed all the way down to act as a table. I held the samosas in a paper bag in my lap and the green chutney in a plastic bowl in one hand. Ashish held the red chutney in his hand. I spread a few tissues from Nitai
s car dispenser and we were off, enjoying some mouth-wateringly delicious samosas with totally heavenly adrak-waali chai under an overcast sky with a steady wind blowing across and the constant patter of tiny raindrops falling around us. Pure bliss !
