It was 7 am on a chilly Friday morning and I hadn’t seen Meenal all week. As her taxi pulled into the apartment complex, I was loading my bag into another cab to catch my flight to Kolkata.
In the 1 minute that we had to meet and greet before parting again, I uttered these romantic words in her ears:
I left the geyser on for you baby.
Geyser: Water heater for taking hot showers in India. If you forget to turn it on a couple of hours in advance, ouch.
