As I wait for the carry out at the Udupi across the road from Shoppers Stop, I spot them, a group of elders escorting the two young ones, all seriousness, handshakes and hidden smiles. Yes, a girl sees boy session with the full approval and sanction of the elders. As I watch the brisk nod the boy gives the girl when goodbyes are being said, I turn away with a smile, ah yes, this one’s done.

Bombay is the Mecca of people watching and Austereseeker.blogspot.com is the mecca of doing it vicariously :)

Oh my god!! I have actually been to one such session...at that very Radhakrishna...for a friend :-) I can smile about it now but, oh boy, never want to go for another one :-) Anyway, that didn't work out but the said friend is happily married now...yeah, yeah, sounds like an oxymoron, I know :-)

Saw one such 'session' at Dilli Haat a few days ago but, unlike you, I don't know how the meeting between the two worked out. this was a big Sikh unit :-)

Mr Ghost- Mubaraka!So been doing the rounds, eh? I'm sure the Granthiji would have been summoned in due course, brrraat, langar, et al.
