You remember me bitching about not seeing any Earth. And you remember me crooning about my geyser romance for Meenal. But Meenal is a goddess – she showed me Earth and one upped my cheesy love with her gift.

She took me to Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary (Sultanpur Jheel), about an hour drive from Gurgaon with all the ingredients of perfection: a semi-cloudy day, trees as far as the eye could see, water, birds of all sizes, deer, peacocks, fancy cheese, baguette and Fullers London’s Pride beer. On the way out, it started raining and a wild rabbit crossed our path.

Romance, the Indian way

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.
