On a sunny, windy February Sunday

9 Feb

I took a walk. From the YSS Centre in Delhi to Gole Market, where I saw shops that were possibly as old as the Partition, housed within the white pillars of colonial architecture.

With no agenda in mind, I allowed the quiet, sunny roads and the moderate murmur of Sunday life to lead my way. I found my way to a small sweet shop, advertising coffee as an added attraction. It had three small tables, an aged proprietor and three employees. On the menu (for me, i,e.): aloo tikki, coffee out of a Nescafe machine and a book. Around me, a very Punjabi family, two open doorways and the sun. Sublime!

    It sounds like a perfect moment. Just the kind of thing I would do and enjoy. I can almost imagine sitting there and sipping that delicious coffee
