you know I hate mumbai. I say it often and i say it everywhere. the city takes too many liberties with itself. it strips off innocence easily. fast. and
In the four months I stayed there… I spent most of my time in the sand pit/slide/ swings in one play
area in goregaon, and another in Powai.
I was almost always the solitary parent minding my firstborn. I saw teenaged girls perching babies on their
non-existent hips and pushing prams for the evening park haunt.
It was bloody everywhere. A little girl ‘looking after’ a littler kid.
(I’ve lived in Bangalore and haunted the parks there.
I’ve lived in chennai and haunted (what little) parks
they have… and it is not THE NORM in those cities)
But for Mumbai. everything is chalta hai.
Why are such a great majority of mothers in Mumbai so
Cruel mumbai and cruel cruel Urvashi.
Don’t you remember the time when you were a little
girl? What were you doing when you were 10 or 12 ?
Why do you let a little girl do what you cannot or will not?
