On a cold day I'm reminded of...

... a warm duvet
... a mug of hot chocolate
... Home Alone (the movie)
... Serendipity (the movie)
... snuggling in with a book
... Hot toast with melting butter and an omellete
... Poha/Upma at Buddha's Paradise (a cafe in Koregaon Park, Pune, Maharashtra)
... Buttered toast and Anda Bhurji at Vohuman's Cafe (a cafe near Pune Station, Maharashtra)
... a hot bowl of Maggi
... Luchi-aloo'r dom (A standard Bengali breakfast delicacy)
... a big English breakfast
... Aloo paratha (Indian fried flat bread stuffed with mashed potato - spicy or otherwise) at Shashi's (a small eatery in Majitar, Sikkim)
... roaming about dressed like Feluda (a detective created by Satyajit Ray) in a Kurta-pyjama with a shawl draped over and the sleeves rolled up
... watching a Ray classic
 
 
It's uncharacteristically cold today in London, not the sort which would chill you the bones but the sort which would make you vote for a lie-in than a walk to work. Sadly, that is an option not many can exercise. So here I am reminiscing the days the when I could enjoy a leisurely cold day.

Paul A. Young on Threadneedle street, London has the perfect thing to go with cold weather. By far the most divine hot chocolate I have ever tasted! Came across your blog, quite randomly! Nice posts. I also think parathas from Chaitanya, Pune should make the list :-)

@phoenix: ah well... home has its own charm now, doesn't it? :)

@madhuri: Now ain't we glad your path brought you across my blog.
a. you reminded me of chaitanya. their parathas are honestly to die for. Did I mention the anda bhurji, bun maska and tea at Pune station at odd hours of the night?
b. You just told me of a place to visit in London :) Will check it out sometime soon.

hii..came across ur blog as i was searching somthing related to TIME STOPS AT SHAMLI. u wrote that article too and the explanation needs a cheer. i personally am a fan of ruskin bond and i admired ur writing. neway.. related to this must say it makes one feel quite nostalgic ; more when we live abroad and being a bengali too i can relate more with luchi alur dom, satyajit ray novels, book fair and maidan. wish we could go back to those days.
