n the middle of the night I saw that yesterday was the first day of winter chill coming in. The auto guy was wearing a shawl. And on the way back from a late night movie two men taking a stroll on the road were opening up a shawl each to wrap around themselves. The autumn collections are in the shops shouting out for love. I went and picked up my winter clothes from home. There’s a dry freshness in the wind in the mornings that reminds me of the hills. So here’s to my first entire winter spent in north India. I have been in the south for the past 5 years and would only come home for a week or so in winter. I look forward to so many things. There will be winter photos up in this post from time to time.
