LOVE IS IN THE AIR

"I feel it in my fingers
I feel it in my toes
Love is all around me
And so the feeling grows"
-- go those 90's cuties 'Wet Wet Wet" (in their version of the 60's hit-ballad by 'The Troggs') in my head!

I'm standing in front of a sign that says "In Love With..." inside a watch store in Mumbai airport with the sales assistants clicking my goofy smile. A ten-second happening just outside prompts me to be a believer. I see through the door an old man shuffling around looking to find a seat in the lounge and an immediate response from not one -- but three young men -- each one springing up to offer his seat. An every-day aww!-some moment.. this. At the airport, also picked up a copy of one my fave writers' portrait of the second city I call home-- 'Capital' by Rana Dasgupta. Another reason to smile.. especially when beyond the author's funny and thought provoking personal insight (unnerving too!) one reads an anecdote of a woman losing her spouse to a big hospital's apathy -- "this year I was talking to my sister--'I'll have to get used to not having roses on Valentine's Day". On the fourteenth the woman got home to a huge bunch of roses and a note from her sister-- " He never left you. He will always love you. These are from him". *sigh*

Fast forward to D-Day itself.. oops V-Day! Found the better half and myself at our son's school checking out a brilliant art exhibition put together by the school-leaving batch! A Trashion creation made of trash with a catchy caption caught my fancy -- "Its not about what you've got.. it's about what you make of what you've got" -- wow! I do hope to have at least a couple of these talented kids intern with my label Anu PD! That evening we were at a travel-trade industry ball at a hotel in Delhi with a bunch of our diplomat friends -- thank you Excellencies and spouses for doing the Bhangra with us in Danish-Turkish-Trinidadian-and Montenegrin-style! Also thank you Le Meridian! And so ended a day dedicated to love--with my partner by my side through the day :-)

PS the kitschy coaster on the table with the truck-print on it reminds me of more travel ahead -- hey I have to try a truck-ride next! I leave you with this truck-wallahs' graffiti. LOL.
