Yes, I miss India. Specifically...

  • Chowpati Chinese! The most unhealthy, unhygienic yet the tastiest and cheapest Chinese food! There is no place in the United States where you can just drive out at 2am and get yummy Chinese food!
  • Freshly squeezed Ganga-Jamuna orange/sweet lime juice topped with chaat masala at the juice stalls
  • Mewaad ice cream!
  • Driving on the shoulder to get ahead
  • Drinking coconut water from the coconut. And then having the coconut man break it open for the malai later
  • Taking Rs. 2 to the roadside paan-tapri to buy Cadbury Eclairs
  • Turning around and driving in the wrong direction because you missed the turn
  • Asking rikshaw wallas for directions
  • Asking random pedestrians for directions and then letting them hop on the back seat to show you the way
  • Sitting in the veranda, chatting with neighbors on lazy afternoons
  • Petting random street dogs
  • Drinking chai at street-side tapris (tea stalls) at 3 in the morning
  • Stealing kisses from your sweetheart while hiding from the public
  • Going to the railway station for burji-pav at midnight
  • Riding scooters side by side while chatting with friends
