It’s that time of year again. The time of year when India’s finest hit the streets of Bandra in celebration of Mother Mary. Hordes of worshipers and onlookers alike flood the streets buying trinkets and wax body parts as offerings to Our Lady of Peace.
Last year, I wrote about the top ten things you can pick up at a street fair HIV Tattoos, green chicken, devil horns, etc. This year, I feel it apt to add to the list, so here goes:
5. Pink, foil wrapped sword, complete with bitchin’ sheath.
4. Ice-cream drips on your shoes. From the little kid whose cone finds its way onto your shoe after she becomes distracted by your big camera.
3. Perma-grin, due to all the smiling faces staring at you as you wind your way down the street.
2. Sweat circles under your arms because you melt. Because it’s bloody hot.
