Hello. I’m pineapple, and I’m angry. I’m done with the demeaning ways of the people.⁣ ⁣ I’m an underrated fruit. I’m sweeter than anything that came out of your mouth. I’m juicier than the gossip you share with each other. Ice-creams, candy, juice, so many things originate from me. Unlike you, I have given so much happiness to people worldwide, while your idea of happiness is to order food, click pictures of it, and upload it on social media. ⁣ ⁣ I have never done any harm to anyone, and yet here you are, insulting me. You don’t like pineapple pizza? Good! But why drag me into this? It’s not like I appeared in your dreams, and told you to! It was your idea. Own it. Don’t insult me with your Pineapple Pizza references.⁣ ⁣ Like I said, I’m pretty underrated. As far as ice-creams are concerned, mangoes, and strawberries are given more preference. As for candies, it’s always orange. I have only lost. The least you can do is be grateful to me. But, no! You refuse to be good. You’re filled with hate. You’re also filled with a lot of junk food, none of which has anything to do with me.⁣ ⁣ You’re flawed, not me. You are the one who reads Rupi Kaur poems, which are nothing but a sentence divided into four lines, and you’re so touched by it’s beauty, that you go to a movie theatre to watch a meaningless, no script, “timepass” Bollywood flick that makes Rupi Kaur look like Maya Angelou! Pretty sure if Rupi Kaur wrote poetries on Pineapple, you would avoid them. If Shahrukh Khan was romancing a girl who sells Pineapples, in a film, you wouldn’t watch it. Even an Item song featuring Pineapples would fail to impress you. ⁣ ⁣ I’m done. I’m so done with all of you. bye!⁣ ⁣ Photo by Pineapple Supply Co. on Unsplash #writersgram #writersofindia #writersofinstagram #indianwriters #pineapple #microfiction #stories #wordswag #word #mumbaistories #mumbai #delhigram #pune #instalol #instafunny #instafun #indian #india
I'd like to quote Hannah Montana here - 'Everybody makes mistakes, Everybody has those days.' . . Kids, the lesson to be learnt here is - do not make a cocktail of cocktails. Not a very good idea. . . *Shout-out to all my peeps who didn't abandon me on the streets of Khar. Ya'll are the real MVPs* . . *Also, this was too good a picture not to be on my timeline* . . #BewdasOfInstagram #ThrowbackTuesday #MistakesAreImportant #lifelessons #yolo

Fact: 50% of the vehicle train collisions occur at crossings with active warning devices. The tracks were invented and then built for the trains to run on. They run at great speeds and get us where we want to. There are roads and footpaths made for us to drive and walk on respectively. Why don’t we take the path which is made for us but rather take the one that could kill us? The warning devices are there to inform us about the dangers of the path we are on. Let’s pay attention to those and tread the right path. . . . . . . . . #chooseyourway #choosetherightway #bridgethetracks #factoftheday #factsdaily #betterlatethannever #dontcrossrailwayslines #itsnotthelasttrain #bettersafethansorry #dangersofcrossingtracks #stopyourself #stopothers #stopcrossingrailwaytracks #dontrisklifetosavetime #mumbaistagram #mumbailocaltrain #mumbailocal #mumbaiunsafe #mumbaiunfiltered #mumbaidiaries #mumbailife #mumbai_uncensored #mumbaireality #mumbaidailystory #mumbaistories #mumbaimerijaan #mumbaikars #pictureoftheday

I am not into posh food, or fusion food, rather, very happy seeking out authentic food even if means trudging to far flung parts. But heard so much about this place that decided to relax my requirements to eat (run down, family run places, with authentic food, give two hoots about ambience, hygiene etc) also if I have to eat fusion would rather have it here than in London. We ordered a whole lot , pork vindaloo thepla, vada pao with prawns, kothu roti, arbi tuk, potli paneer, bhavnagari chilli, ceviche, haleem etc etc. All I can say is my favourite dish was the barley salad, rose falooda, and the gulab jamun doughnut. Service team was very attentive and polite. They also took back the ceviche which I wasnt happy with and didn't charge us for it. Will I be going back soon, no. Maybe if I am in those parts meeting Banker friends, keen on drinking in a posh ambience and don't really care about the food, and of course will be picking up the tab. But take me to Gokul (permit room in Colaba) any day, to have a pahua or quarter #imfl with some surmai fry or #kingfishfry with spicy boiled channa. #Mumbaibites #yummy #nomnom #foodie #eeeeeats #huffpostgram #foodandwine #foodstagram #onmytable #mumbaimerijaan #homecoming #mumbaistories #traveller #travelphotography #foodphotography #instafood #instarestaurants #foodshare #foodgasm #foodporn

‘Let’s meet for lunch. At an Irani cafe. Near Lower Parel.’ Seemed like an impossible brief given that these are largely located in south Mumbai but then you don’t say no to Pritha Sen do you? Jokes apart, I suddenly thought of going to Cafe Irani Chaii in Mahim and I couldn’t have been more satisfied with what followed. It was my first visit to this 4 year old family run restaurant and I’ve rarely felt as happy with visiting a ‘new’ place as I did here today. The place was all soul and it felt like I was home. Could be because of the Parsi manager who said ‘congratulations’ when I told him I am married to a Parsi. Or the owner’s son whom I met on the way out. The family is a Muslim Irani family and he spoke about his visits to Iran and I told him that I lived there as a kid. I think I did hear some Bengali voices from the kitchen but I could be wrong. The food was very home styled so for once I could ‘impart knowledge’ to Pritha. Payback for all the times I’ve picked on her brains. The bill for an astonishing number of dishes was Rs 1,024 proving that while just 4 years old, the restaurant is as heritage ‘Irani’ as it gets in its spirit. ‪PS: I had two lunches today. Machhed mudo diye dal at home and then dhansak featured in the second one. Sums up my story.‬ #foodblogger #foodwriter #iranirestaurant #mumbaistories #mumbaifinelychopped
Taste testing the scrummy new cheesecake cups from @le15patisserie ... it’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it! Our favourite was definitely the white chocolate raspberry, closely followed by the banoffee. We’ll probably try them again today though, just to confirm our findings.

The Dhobi Ghat which is 128 years old and traces its existence back to the British Raj, sees over 5000 washermen or dhobis slog round the clock to scrub, dye, bleach, dry over a lakh clothes daily and press them to perfection. . . . These clothes which come from a diverse set of clients including neighbouring laundries, garment dealers, wedding decorators and caterers among others are washed in countless open-air concrete wash pens that have the traditional flogging stone and are located all over the dhobi ghat. A different world exists in the dhobi ghat which is inhabited by a very large and hardworking labour force who have a dozen myriad stories of their existence to narrate. Our 5 Senses Tour offers you a peak into this fascinating landmark of Mumbai, Maharashtra. If you want to explore the same, reach out to us and we shall gladly oblige. 😀 . . . #_soimumbai #stories #people_infinity #indianphotography #indiaclicks #insta_maharashtra #instamumbai #storiesofindia #ig_respect #hardwork #humansofmumbai #storiesofindia #amazing #Mumbai #India #amazingfacts #truestories #jawdropping #dhobighat #dhobighatmumbai #mumbaidiaries #mumbai_uncensored #mumbaistories #indiadiaries #dhobis #dhobi #laundry

Have you ever Leisurely strolled through the streets of Mumbai While around you Shrilled a hundred horns Rushed past a stagger of vehicles at every green Sluggishly crawled at every red Strode people with a purpose definitive demeanours intact. Have you ever Stepped back in time into an old stationery shop That made Beautiful paper things back in the day You frequented it then A couple of decades ago When the shop was full and you were young You walked in today Oh they still make pretty things That nobody buys now You were the only person in the shop today Have you ever Sauntered into a quaint book store You had never known before That smelled of book and old polished wood That had high ceilings and a depth of character And maybe just today you bumped into a well loved city writer there Have you ever Sampled Parsi fare at an old Irani café Where a roomful of men were on work lunches Reflected in its many mirrors And the caramel cream was divine Have you ever Whiled away the sultry afternoon in a grand old bazaar that sold Spice and nuts and chocolate Lovebirds and fowl Dragon fruit and passion fruit that was dear and rare Bright yellow melons Scented hookahs And then your tired feet took you to a crowded freezing café Where at a table for one you had their popular too-sweet drink Have you ever really visited the city that is Bombay? . . . #bombay #experiences #mumbaistreets #mumbaistories #_soi #vt #victoriaterminus #csmt #cst #indogothic #indosarcenic #colonial #chimanlals #kitabkhana #militarycafe #crawfordmarket #bazaars

My latest blog post is about the people I met in Mumbai and the meals they fed me when I was new to the city which made it feel like home to me. Please share your stories if like me, you too had migrated out of home and were made to feel at home in your new city by the people you met and the food they fed you. Would love to hear about them. The link is in the bio https://www.finelychopped.net/2018/08/its-shared-meals-more-than-bricks-that.html PS What you see in the picture are Russian kevabs and Parsi mutton kevabs. Why are they here?

As my favourite coffee was kept on the table, I became happy. This is 23rd time I’m having this coffee this month. Not that I have counted it, but having an odd number for the cup makes it seem credible. So, I’ll stick with 23rd.⁣ ⁣ The cup had my correct spelling. By now, I’m sure my name appears in the dreams of the people working here. Not sure if that’s a dream or a nightmare, but as long as my name is spelt correctly, who cares!⁣ ⁣ There’s no greater joy than buying an overpriced cup of coffee, clicking pictures of it, and then uploading it on social media. The amount of likes and comments I get for it, you would think I have won a Nobel Peace Prize. Our standards of achievement have fallen drastically.⁣ ⁣ The people here are either engrossed in conversations, or their MacBook. I would definitely choose a MacBook over a conversation, but I’m too broke. So, I have decided. I’m going to have conversations with this coffee cup.⁣ ⁣ On second thoughts, I won’t have a conversation with this cup. If I do, people will think that I’m weird, and the next time I enter this place, I’ll be known as “that weird coffee girl”, which doesn’t sound bad, since coffee is cool, and weird is cool too, but doesn’t work out well in reality.⁣ ⁣ I love coffee as much as I love the correct spelling of my name. I wouldn’t mind owning a coffee shop. In my coffee shop, I would ban conversations, and MacBooks. I would ban any use of technology. Let my coffee shop be a shining light in the darkness of ordinary coffee shops. Would people come to my coffee shop? Of course, they would! If people can buy something as useless fidget spinners, then silent coffee shops sounds like heaven in comparison.⁣ ⁣ I’m done with this coffee, and it’s time to leave. So long! ⁣ ⁣ Photo by Charles Koh on Unsplash #writersgram #writersofindia #microfiction #indianwriters #writersofinstagram #instalol #instafunny #lol #sarcastichumor #sarcastic #sarcasm #sarcasmonly #mumbaistories #mumbai #indian #india
Nose to tail eating, Bengali granny style. Lau with ilish maachhed mudo (bottle gourd with hilsa head). . A hat tip to Maharashtrian grannies too in the form of bajra rotis made by our cook. . My recipe for the lau? Smear the fish head with turmeric, salt and red chilli powder and lightly fry and set aside. Note, the ilish head, unlike that of kaatla is a mine field of bones. . Heat a teaspoon of oil, add panch phoron and a dry red chilli, then chopped and peeled lau and a bit of turmeric and salt (you can red chilli and cumin powder if you want) and and after it’s semi cooked, add the fish and let it cook together so that the flavours of the fish permeate the lau. . A Bengali granny would slice the peels of lau and shallow fry it and serve it with the meal too. She believes in a zero waste policy you see. . #foodblogger #foodie #foodwriter #yum #food #foodphotos #mumbaistories #finelychopped #millets #finelychoppedkitchen #finelychoppedrecipes #littlejackhornermeals #bengaliinmumbai #finelychoppedblog #seasonalfood #lunch #hilsa #fishhead #shotoniphone7plus #nosetotail #indianfood #bengalifood #homecooking #platesoffinelychopped #grandmascooking
