You Know They’re Bambaiyya Babies When…

7 Aug

……you say “Chowpatty jayenge…” and they scream “BHELPURI KHAYENGE!!!” in unison. With a response time of 8 nanoseconds.

Yup, acutely Bambaiyya. And their teacher’s lovin’ it.

    maidinmalaysia: Go battle with Ams on her blog. She has the gumption to call it a bonda! Hah! 😡

    M…: Edison, NJ, my girl. Bombay on a plate. Indian Chinese and all.

    DewdropDream: They were rowing boats in a yoga session and School is right up the road from Chowpatty.

    dipali: Bambaiyya kids can’t say that sitting in Calcutta. Prove yourself! Visit! 😛

    Aunty G: I once had a stalker, his name was Sohail,
    Was quite a looker, ginger-haired and frail,
    He’s been gone a while now, oh it’s such bliss,
    I don’t know why, though, I was reminded of this. 😉

    Meira: Thank you. 🙂 Once in college, a girl who had just transferred from JNU asked me which party I preferred. And I replied, “Why, all of them! There’s one tonight. Coming?”
